Printer-friendly versionPDF version

A three-day big build at Seathwaite Community Centre in Mirehouse, Whitehaven, has successfully concluded.

Morgan Sindall, Sellafield Ltd, Copeland Borough Council and Cumbria Constabulary joined together for the project to build a shed and allotment area at the Community Centre, with the Men in Sheds group helping with the final stages to get the project over the line.

The project was co-ordinated from the Copeland Hub in Whitehaven.

Louise Coid, from the Copeland Hub, said: “We’re grateful to all of the different organisations for coming together for this unique community project.”

Cumbria’s Police and Crime Commissioner Peter McCall said: “I’m delighted to hear that the project has been completed – a real achievement for all involved.  It is a great example of the community working together to make a difference.”
