PROJECT SUMMARY

The development of an annex on the side of the Redrock Orange Hall building to allow for an increased capacity and usage for community activities.

BACKGROUND

Redrock Development Partnership currently meets in Redrock Orange Hall. The group has successfully leased the hall which can be adapted to suit the groups needs. Redrock Development Partnership is a victim of its own success the Tuesday club has 76 members (60 attend regularly) and the room is so limited that the users can not be facilitated at tables for their lunch. The dance classes at night are so popular the group has to be split in two as the numbers can not be facilitated. Other classes in the hall include Yoga, First Aid, Fife and Drum, Digital Photography, Lambeg as well as Good Health and Balance.

ACTIVITIES

  • Enhance an existing facility for the community by constructing an annex to Redrock Orange Hall
  • Increase capacity of hall to facilitate 140 people
  • Run 20 educational classes
  • Run dance classes each Tuesday night and increase number of individuals attending from 40 to 70
