The Coniston Institute Revamp Begins

Coniston Institute, the village hall and library has been pretty run down for years and funding for a complete surgical make-over is yet to happen. In the meantime, to avoid further decay and general disillusionment with the place, we thought we'd organise a series of volunteer weekends to get on with it ourselves. We bought some paint, a floor sander was hired and about 15 of us spent two days kick starting the revamp. It was hard work but a real pleasure to see some immediate improvements. Grubby walls were painted, old broken pots in the kitchen were finally chucked, out-of date leaflets are no longer cluttering up tables and notice boards and the broken clock has been binned. The stage had been used as a general storage area for chairs and tables but after clearing it and sanding the floor, you can really imagine it being used again as it was intended. A big thank you to everyone who helped, especially Margaret who just turned 85 and spend the weekend with paint stripper and a scraper.
