We’re looking forward to the shiny new kitchen that contractors Keepmoat are currently designing for us and will soon be installing at the Remakery! This will create training opportunities for volunteers and costs us nothing, as it’s part of Keepmoat’s drive for social responsibility and investing in the communities where they work. They are delivering lots of work on local estates over the next few years as one of the main contractors for the Lambeth Housing Standard programme of improvements to housing stock.
In the mean time, Keepmoat have kindly been keeping us stocked up with safety supplies for our workers and volunteers. Boxes of new gloves, goggles, and ear protection were delivered by their Community Investment Manager, Neal Allison, who’s been a staunch supporter since first visiting the Remakery in November last year.
It’s also a good moment to say thanks for the large sheets of perspex they donated back in the autumn - previously covers for outdoor artwork, these have done invaluable service over the winter at the Remakery, as a temporary screen covering the gates and grilles at the Lilford Road end, making a big difference to the temperature on site by blocking out draughts.
Thanks Keepmoat for all your support and for recognising and adding to the value that grassroots initiatives like the Remakery can bring to communities. Working in partnership is helping us make it happen.
