The challenge at Wayside Community Centre

The Challenge is a programme under the National Citizen Service aiming “to bring together young people from all different backgrounds in a common purpose”.
Wayside Community Centre works with The Challenge to promote intergenerational work. Benefitting both the younger and the older generation.

Below is a couple of videos about the young people’s experiences at the Community Centre, which they made during their visit last summer.

 

 

High fashion at Wayside with the sewing class

Last week the sewing class finished their coats, and the results are absolutely stunning!

These ladies made their coats from scratch at our Friday sewing class, which over the course of 13 weeks looked at coats; learning technical sewing skills, designing, and choosing the right fabric.

Have a look:

Experiences from the Community Centre

We have been lucky to have students helping us, doing work experience at the Community Centre. Here is what they said about the centre:

“Wayside is a very welcoming place, the people are amazing. Every second you can hear laughter, it’s also a great way to spend time with your friends. The thing that makes Wayside special is that everybody has a story to tell.”

“I really enjoyed it here. I got to know about new stuff, Tanisha taught me stuff on Word, Excel that I needed to learn. It was a great experience working here with the elderly people.”

It has been a great experience for us, and we hope it has been for them as well!

Do you remember?..

We have so many good memories from events and activities in the centre, and we have shared some of them in our gallery – have a look!
