Louis and Paula took control over the neglected former miners wash house in 2012 and have spent the last 10 years transforming the building into the vibrant community hub that it is today. Louis and Paula took over the building which had no water or electricity and have since, with the help of friends and volunteers, revitalised it. They run the organisation along with 8 volunteers who manage the café, events, and weekly clubs they host. As the organisation expands, they require outdoor decking which we are looking to design.
