We are a community centre in Rainham, Kent, run entirely by volunteers, owned by and managed for the local community.
We have a wide range of users from local exercise and craft classes to coffee mornings for adults with learning disabilities and young mums, we host talks and have a charity collection every month.Our users range from just a few days old to the local active retirement society, we have users with physical disabilities , we try to be inclusive in everything we do.
The aim of the The Oast is to restore this beautiful historic building whilst also making it accessible to the whole of the local community. The Oast is one of the most iconic buildings in Rainham with protected status and situated in the town centre.
Our courtyard garden in the centre of the building has to remain closed because it is unsighly and and the uneven floor is dangerous. We would like to open it up for all of our users, to do that we need to be able to install a floor that everyone can use. As well as creating raised beds, a seating area and maybe even a playhouse.
We would like to be able to open the courtyard so its accessible to all of our users at all times. The Oast Community Centre is entirely run by volunteers and is run as a charity.

I think it would be great to make a garden for the children to play. Good luck
