Whittingham Riddell Make a Difference at Craven Arms Community Centre

An enthusiastic team of volunteers from the Ludlow office of Whittingham Riddell recently offered their services to help out with painting at Craven Arms Community Centre.

The Centre, now known as CasCA, is under new management with South Shropshire Furniture Scheme having recently taken on the responsibility of keeping the doors open for the community to enjoy the wide range of sports, arts and community activities that take place in the building.

Each year Whittingham Riddell give a day of their time to support a local charity and as soon as CasCA heard of the opportunity the Centre jumped at the chance to welcome the Whittingham Riddell team.

Jean Jarvis MBE, Chief Executive said, “The Furniture Scheme relies very much on voluntary effort.  We are extremely grateful to Whittingham Riddell for helping us at Craven Arms.  The volunteers did a fantastic job, painting the entrance area, the IT suite and several meeting rooms.  Lots of people are commenting on how good the Centre looks and how welcoming it feels”.

The volunteers were supported and supervised by Ben Whitmarsh, painter decorator from Ludlow who has been working with the Furniture Scheme at Craven Arms and Rockspring in Ludlow.  Ben said, “It’s incredible how much you can get through in a day with willing workers and lots of extra pairs of hands.  It really has made redecorating the Centre affordable at a time when budgets are tight.”

Talk given to Churches Together Around Ludlow (CTAL)

Hello Chris,
On behalf of the CTAL lunch group, I want to thank you so much for coming to talk to us and bringing your slide show.  I’m glad you ignored my 10 – 15 minute advice!  It went very well and everyone was really interested and pleased to have heard all that goes on at Rockspring and under the Furniture Scheme ‘banner
I hope some people will feel inspired to help out in one way or another and to tell their friends about it.  It has educated us more on the subject of ‘Ludlow in Need’ and it’s so good to hear about all your projects and your enthusiasm, which was infectious.

 

Vintage Afternoon Tea marks opening of new Reviive Telford furniture store

A vintage afternoon tea was hosted at the new Reviive store in Trench, Telford yesterday to mark the opening of the new premises, which were officially opened by David Wright MP.

The Mayor and Mayoress of Telford & Wrekin, Leon and Barbara Murray, and other local councillors and business people, were also present to hear about the social enterprise business, which has bought many new jobs and opportunities to the area.

Reviive, which already has successful stores in Shrewsbury and Oswestry, recently opened the new store in Trench which stocks new, recycled and upcycled furniture and household goods, as well as new mattresses and flat pack furniture.

To celebrate the official opening, everyone visiting the store between Saturday 28th September and Friday 4th October will receive 20% off all purchases.

David Wright MP said of the new store: “It’s great to see a successful business like Reviive coming to Telford. Not only does it help families in the area purchase household goods at reasonable prices, it also offers fantastic opportunities for volunteers, work placements, employment and training. We wish them every success.”

Reviive has something for everyone, and offers discounts to those on benefits, and also to Wrekin Housing Trust tenants, thanks to a partnership between the two companies.

Leon Murray, Mayor of Telford & Wrekin, said: “I was thrilled to be at this event which celebrates a new business opening in Telford. I was very impressed with the variety and quality of items for sale and would encourage everyone to go along and have a look.”
