Penarth Refurbishment Centre
Unit Manager: Roger Flambert
Address: Dingle Lane, Penarth, South Wales. CF64 2ET
Opening times: 9.15 to 12.15 every Tuesday and Thursday
We're a small workshop but looking to expand to a bigger industrial unit as we gain more volunteers. We support the collectors across South Wales and refurbish a wide variety of tools and sewing machines. We also have a large haberdashery department sorting and putting together sewing kits.
We have a nice break room and down tools at a set time so we can have a time for chat and friendship. There is limited parking outside the workshop but plenty in nearby streets.
We look for opportunities to promote TWAM and our workshop and attend local exhibitions and occasionally hand out leaflets at our local supermarket.
We welcome new volunteers and you will be assured a warm welcome. Please get in touch with us and we'll arrange for you to come over and see us.
Our volunteer opportunities
We have the following teams:
Some of our volunteers stick to one team, but many help out wherever needed.
Interested in joining us? Then here's what happens next:
The next step would be to ring or email us and arrange to pop in for an informal chat and tour. Alternatively you could fill in the online application form or download the paper copy. It's very short! After that we will take up references and if they are OK we'll arrange for you to come for an induction and discuss what you would like to do it. Then with a training session booked, you're all set to go!
