Project Partners: Ely Baptist Church
The Baptist Church is situated in the heart of Ely which is an area of high unemployment and social deprivation. The church leadership were keen to increase their outreach and to play some part in regenerating the local community. The facilities within the Community Hall had become sub-standard and this project provided for a new kitchen, cold food storage, replacement flooring throughout the building and new doors that open out onto a new patio.
The external improvements to the patio area have created a space to be enjoyed by users of the amenity during the summer months. The social environment has been improved by providing a facility for young mothers and the disadvantaged youth in the community.
“The overall project took longer than expected, though I am not sure what CFR could have done better. All in all a very pleasant and worthwhile experience”
