Shabby Chic workshop held at St Columbas Church

With the help of a £460 Warley ward forum grant, a shabby chic workshop was organized at St Columbas Church community hall. 10 people took part where under the guidance of a qualified instructor they restored different pieces of furniture.

Not only did people enjoy the social aspect of the workshop, they gained new skills and found the work therapeutic.

If you have any ideas that may need some funding then a ward forum grant  (up to £500) may be of benefit.

For further information on the grants please contact Rachael or Tony on 0300 555 0266.
