Rural Refurb

Rural Refurb is our newest established project funded by The Big Lottery Fund. The project will enable the organisation to refurbish waste goods, primarily furniture items, to provide training and work experience for individuals from rural and economically deprived areas.

Training will include: Stripping of paint, varnish, sanding, minor woodwork, use of tools, general hand skills and repainting and spraying. Individuals would be taken through a full range of activities as part of a structured experience-gaining programme, and their progress documented.
