New Project

With the ‘Chill Out Zone’ nearly complete except for a few minor additions and the Chapel Barn build well under way, we are now looking to our next major project, a new shower and toilet block to replace the existing one.

We are very grateful to
The Summerfield Trust who have donated £6000 already towards the project, we’ve also had donations from Allchurches Trust Ltd (£1650) and the Ruardean Evangelical Trust (£500). The Rowlands Trust has promised £5000 when our target is met and work is underway. We are very grateful to all those supporting this next important phase of upgrading the facilities at TRAC.

Chapel Barn Update

I'm always amazed at the weekly transformations taking place at TRAC by the volunteers who arrive each week on Tuesday and Friday whatever the weather, as you can see by the latest photo's of the Chapel Barn build. They have even taken down half the scaffolding, there was a standing joke that TRAC should have applied for 'listed status' on the scaffolding as it had been in place for so long!

Our winter 2017 Newsletter

An cold and frosty start to 2017 for the maintenance team on the first week of January 2017, we’re pleased to say the Chapel Barn roof is now finished and just needs to be signed off. The hedges have been cut in the Peace Garden (volunteers still wanted to help maintain the Peace Garden!), the kitchen units now ready to install in the Chill Out Zone and the only TRAC visitor today was looking for breakfast.
