Vince Amorelli manages the Communal Electrical Contract for Peabody Housing Association, so we went along to their local community centre to speak to Ellie Ward the Peabody Community Centre Manager find out if there was anything that they might like our help with. As it turned out there was quite a lot that they would appreciate us to help out with. They run the ‘Food Pantry’ from that site and we did a collection and delivered that just in time for Christmas last year. We can always do this on a regular basis.
Ellie also suggested that they would really like some help with communal garden projects that would make such an amazing difference to so many people across the community.
1) Community centre patio makeover and 2) Regenerating a community garden
Dan Baldwin worked out the costing for each project and together with the subcontractors; AP Electrical, Willow Services Ltd, RDS Fire and Security, NRG Elextrix and the Peabody Foundation themselves we were able to agree to go ahead with both projects.
Dan Baldwin has since been doing great job managing both of these projects along with help from Aaron Stanislaus, John King and Steven Nicholas.
