Playgroup Benefits from Tai Tarian’s Community Challenge

Brightstars Playgroup

The Brightstars Playgroup in Crynant has become the latest community project to benefit from Tai Tarian’s Community Challenge.

The challenge saw volunteers from the housing provider team up with contractors ASW Property Services to re-decorate the group’s building, providing the walls and ceilings with a fresh coat of paint.  In addition, the team also renovated and painted a shed in the grounds which is used for storing play equipment.

The refurbishment was part of Tai Tarian’s Community Challenge, a programme that will see a total of nine community projects given a makeover over the course of the summer.  The challenge is a joint partnership programme between the housing provider and its main contractors, which allows different community projects to benefit from free building or maintenance work. 

Stephanie Flew from Brightstars Nursery said:
“The refurbishment of the nursery has been of a very high quality.  The difference it has made to the building and our outside shed has been amazing.  It will benefit us greatly as we can now offer a new and fresh looking setting to both our children and staff."

Tai Tarian contractor ASW Property Services worked on the project.  Their Operations Manager Paul Phillips said:
“This is the second community challenge that we’ve been involved in this year with Tai Tarian.  The initiative is very important to us as a company as it allows us to give something back to the communities in which we operate.  Our team really enjoyed helping out here and we hope that the children are pleased with their new look nursery.”

The community challenge will continue over the coming weeks with Port Talbot Foodbank and Ysgol Hendrefelin in Bryncoch the next projects due to benefit.
