Baking up a treat at The Apuldram Centre

THE APULDRAM Centre has reopened after undergoing a £20,000 upgrade.

The charitable base, at Common Farm, in Appledram Lane South, has seen a ‘fantastic’ extension, according to general manager Jane Kilby.

“It’s brilliant. It’s a major refurbishment.

“We’ve knocked walls down and put completely new equipment in and it’s all looking fantastic.

“It’s working really well. It enables us to have much more space and room for the trainees to work one-to-one with trainers and instructors.”

People working in the kitchen bake cakes and snacks which are then sold on to help fundraise for the centre.

“It was a project that urgently needed doing,” added Jane.

“The original kitchens were built 
in 1991.

“So far people have been saying they’re really glad we’re open again.”

Apuldram provides day care to adults with learning disabilities, allowing its clients to achieve their full potential and get involved in the community.

The new kitchens were unveiled on Monday, November 25, having been closed since September, giving Apuldram’s clients a state-of-the-art kitchen in which to work.
