News: Willmott Dixon Partnerships fit out Rotherham community centre

By

Staff from Willmott Dixon Partnerships have upgraded the facilities at a local community centre in Rotherham.

From a base at Templeborough, Willmott Dixon works with Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council to deliver a repairs and maintenance service to 10,500 homes in the areas of Wentworth South, Wentworth Valley, Rother Valley West and Rother Valley South.

A team of tradesmen for the repairs and maintenance company have fitted a new kitchen at the Oates Close Community Centre in Henley, to help improve the facilities for those that use the centre regularly.

The team spent a week refurbishing the kitchen, replacing the old units and work tops, laying a new floor and installing new plumbing fixtures.

The kitchen was recently re-opened to the community during a special ceremony which was attended by Councillor John Foden, Mayor of Rotherham and local Councillors Jahangir Akhtar and Kath Sims.

Michael Pearson, customer and community officer at Willmott Dixon Partnerships in Rotherham,said: "We were approach by Councillor Akhtar to see if there was anything we could do to help improve the facilities at Oates Close Community Centre. This centre means so much to so many people in the local area and is used very frequently. We were happy to step in and make a difference to the facilities here, and we hope that this kitchen will serve the community well."

Councillor Jahangir Akhtar, added: "I'm very pleased that Willmott Dixon were able to support the Henley Community Group with this kitchen refurbishment. It is a great example of our partnership working together in ways to benefit the local community."

Mick Williamson, managing director of Willmott Dixon Partnerships, said: "This is very much part of our ethos called Transforming Communities, which is about how we can make a real, positive difference to the lives of people living locally.

"We want to play an active part in delivering initiatives that leave real legacy and recently wrote a report, called Transforming Communities, to share ideas and help organisations deliver sustainable growth to help communities through these current austere times."
