Update of the Skills Centre

A Change…

The Skills Centre and the Café is now alive and active, producing crafts and cakes. The market venture has begun, you will find us every Tuesday selling crafts and other items. Come and find us and support our project.

Jason and Michael propelled us into the summer with wonderful and colourful hanging baskets off pansies, petunias, fuchsias and lobelia.

Whilst Jason and Michael are busy in the green house the men are busy making lunch for the group…

Anthony the art teacher putting some touches to a collaborative collage depicting some notable areas around Ashton under Lyne and Tameside: Portland Basin, Mossley Memorial Cenotaph and the Oasis Café. This will be put up in the café for people to view when its finished.

After being disappointed at not being able to use the cellar due to water leakage, the Centres gym has been moved up stairs. The men have added a punch bag, boxing gloves, Flat bench along with the other equipment.

The market stall has now moved from the market into the café. Still come and support us and have a cuppa and a cake whilst browsing and check out some of our upscaled furniture around the corner in the café.
