Oasis Community Centre Projects
We undertake several projects to help the local community and others further afield.
We are trying to restore the wooden building on Plantation Hill, Worksop.
We would like to make the building into a usable space for our youth club, our Men on the Edge project and our work with excluded children, with sports and games facilities.
We have replaced the floor, wall panels and broken windows. New toilets have been installed and the kitchen area has been smartened up. New ceiling panels and lights will be installed soon and we are painting the building inside and out.
The building is still being renovated and improved, but should be available from Autumn 2019 if our funding allows.
We are planning to create a wonderful sensory garden for our Treasured Kids and others to use and enjoy.
