LoveMilton's Office Redecorated
16 April 2013
As part of our continuing partnership with the Princes Trust, Love Milton ran a four-week programme to redecorate the Love Milton community office space. The office desperately needed a renovation, and we’re delighted with the results of our young volunteers’ hard work!
There was a lot of work to do and the volunteers did everything, from painting and decorating to carpentry, tiling and upholstery. Every day saw the volunteers building benches, doing the flooring and carpeting, creating cushion covers and much more! It was great teaching them new skills and seeing them excel to create such a great new office space.

This wasn’t everything they did for us, however. A key part of their course was to market the new offices to the community, raising awareness of both the space and of Love Milton as a community organisation. They made a film, and raised awareness of the Love Milton community event to celebrate their amazing renovation work and show it to the public, whilst taking the opportunity to show the community our vision for Milton’s future, as well as what we are doing right now to achieve that.

We’re absolutely delighted with the results and are really excited to work in this new space. Thumbs up to our young volunteers!
