Decorating for Christmas took on a new meaning when young people from the Prince’s Trust gave a makeover to three rooms at Tenby’s Avenue Centre.
Team 153 from the Trust carried out the refurbishment at the centre as the community project section of their 12-week course.
The social activity centre for adults with learning difficulties has an area called ‘the flat’ which was used to help with independent living skills, but had fallen into disrepair.
The 15-strong team worked for nearly a week to paint the rooms, spruce up the kitchen and build flat-pack furniture to transform a side room into an office and meeting room.
“It was very rewarding to see how keen and willing the team were, and how well they got to work on the project,” said assistant team leader, Chris Emptage.
The team officially handed the rooms back to the Pembrokeshire County Council-run Avenue Centre by hosting a Christmas party, and area co-ordinator Charlotte Barber said:
“We are extremely grateful to the volunteers of the Prince’s Trust for the work they have done in sprucing up part of our centre.
“They did a really good, professional job and our customers are delighted.”
