A donation from Miller Homes has transformed the car park at Middleton St George Community Centre enabling much-needed works to be completed.

 

For some time large potholes meant that the facility was unusable and unsafe, and would freeze over during the colder months.

 

In support of its local community, the leading housebuilder arranged for the car park to be fully resurfaced donating £500, while Adenglow donated its services to complete the works.

 

The community-run centre is at the heart of the small village, less than a mile from Miller Homes’ Hunters Fold development, and relies on contributions from businesses and locals to operate.

 

A committee of six trustees and eight members volunteer their time to ensure the centre, which is a not-for-profit charity, is a welcoming and user-friendly space for Middleton St George residents.

 

It hosts events and activities for all ages including toddler sessions, Girlguiding groups and exercise classes as well as private functions and various meets covering topics from art to history.

 

Andrew Somerville, associate sales director at Miller Homes North East, said: “Middleton St George Community Centre is a hub bringing together people of all ages and interests, making it a well-used resource within the village. The centre’s team of volunteers work incredibly hard, pledging their time around family and job commitments.

 

“We didn’t hesitate in showing our support, and I’d like to thank Adenglow for donating its services to help to improve the car parking area. Residents at our Hunters Fold development settling into life in the village are fortunate to have a centre like this to visit, and I hope that it continues to be enjoyed for generations to come.”

 

Louise Seniscal, a trustee at Middleton St George Community Centre, added: “Without kind donations like this we simply wouldn’t be able to fund the running of the centre let alone pay for improvements. Thanks to Miller Homes the car park has been completely repaired and we are more than grateful. This is something which will be a huge benefit to all of our users who will be so pleased.”
