Trinity Methodist Church and Community Hub has announced a new recruit – and it’s a familiar face! The new Hub Manager, Carol Baird has been a member of Trinity Church since she was 12 and has a background in community work and event organisation.
Carol’s experience includes setting up a healthy living community centre for the Big Lottery in Knutsford, Cheshire and she was County Organiser for Lancashire Young Farmers. Her new role includes working with volunteers to manage the development and promote the new £1 million facilities which were created when Trinity was closed during the pandemic. The new hub includes a state of the art catering kitchen, a new additional entrance from the Castle park and a modern light space called ‘the street’ which is ideal for community events, pop up café activities and art exhibitions.
New users include Veterans in the Community, Clitheroe Ukranian Support Group and Ribble Valley Climate Action Network. Other groups who are enjoying the new facilities include uniformed organisations, Trinity Tots and Clitheroe U3A.
Carol’s appointment and the promotion of the new hub facilities was delayed due to Covid. Official opening events will be held in the autumn.
Carol said: ‘The new facilities are a wonderful resource for the town. I am keen to welcome people to come and have a look at the great new room spaces which are fully accessible and suitable for all kinds of activities and events.’
