Here are just some of the projects we are currently undertaking
Gallery & Gift shop
Opened on the 6th of December, as a space to showcase and support local talent and skill while providing an income to support the running of the site.
To compliment our Gallery and Gift shop we plan to open a Cafe in the adjoining building. This will provide a space for Hospitality, Culinary and Barista training opportunities as well as a source of income to support the center.
Three classrooms have been set aside to be renovated into accommodation to provide backup for local events, weddings, funerals and working bees. We would also use the accommodation for families in need for periods of time and as an income stream to fund other community initiatives.
Facilities repair & Refurbishment
Since the site had been unoccupied for four years it required a lot of work to repair things such as water damage, vandalism and general degradation.
There are also works underway to modify the site to better suit the needs of the community, such as the division of rooms for retail space
edgecumbe Flood relief
After the Edgecumbe flood we became a collection point for donations, which we fed out to the other refuge centers for distribution
