Transform Societies

We worked with the Meadow Vale Community Association to refurbish the existing but dilapidated not fit for purpose centre.

The new centre was formally opened on 23rd June 2018. Just inside the centenary year. Now the centre can deliver the benefits of providing amenities, clubs, activities etc to cater for all ages and nationalities and so begin to create a more vibrant community
