NEW furniture for Mossley Old School community centre  has been purchased with help from Redrow’s Congleton Community Fund.


Nine local groups shared almost £6,000 from the homebuilder, via a fund linked to the Cranberry Gardens development.

These included a donation of more than £800 to Mossley Old School Trust, which has enabled the centre to purchase new furniture for use by community groups who hire the premises on Leek Road.


Centre manager Bryony Milbourne explained: “After the pre-school relocated we needed to ensure that we could sustain the building and keep it available for low-cost hire for local residents. New equipment, including tables was a priority as it would enable new user groups to use the centre. Thanks to Redrow we were able to purchase seven new tables and a trolley, which are being put to good use by groups including Mossley After School and Holiday Club and Congleton Camera Club.


“We hope that with the additional furniture we’ll also be able to host afternoon teas for older residents; board game groups and craft activities and open the hall for community events including parties, cake sales and fundraisers.”

Sports teams, support groups, Guides and Rainbows are among the other good causes in Congleton to have benefitted from Redrow’s generosity.


Anna Evans-Kerr, area sales manager for Redrow Homes (NW), said: “As a homebuilder we appreciate that furniture can really change how a space is used. The new tables are a real benefit to Mossley Old School as they can be easily moved to accommodate different groups’ needs.”
