Activities

Big Clean Up Days

Our community centre is a former secondary school so is huge. The tasks range from window cleaning (not above ground floor), lift cleaning, skirting boards, under the staircases, clearing out old storerooms, grafitti removal, minor repairs etc.

  • Suitable For: Small or Large Groups
  • Materials Cost: Based on 15 people - £75 (sponges, soap, buckets, brushes etc)

 

Fill A Skip Day

Do you love smashing things up?

This is a great team building day as the group need to work on each other's strengths and build a chain of how to get rubbish from different parts of the site to the skip.

This will need some to do the lifting, some to do the filling of skip and some to get people in order (i.e. starting with flat/solid objects first or making sure that the 2-3 trolleys are used efficiently. And of course, sometimes it's better to smash things so they take up less room in the skip and that can be a lot fun!

  • Suitable For: Large Groups - 20 plus
  • Materials Cost: Based on 50 people - £700 (£14 per head) (Skip Hire, Gloves)

 

Gardening

The Selby Centre is lucky to have huge grounds, some of which are used as garden for staff and visitors, bits which are used for a community veg growing space. There is a lot to do and can include creating more veg plots, deweeding, clearing overgrown shrubs, replanting the flower beds. We can be more specific when you give us suggested dates as this activity is seasonal.

  • Suitable For: Small and Large Groups
  • Materials Cost: Based on 20 people - £100 (we operate a tool replenishing system so each group pays £100 to replenishing the tool stock). If you specifically wanted to plant items, then we can discuss the cost of plants. 

 

Internal and External Painting

The Selby Centre is a former secondary school building, so is absolutely huge. We have miles of corridors and skirting boards, we have hundreds of doors, door frames, window frames and a lot of rooms. Outside we have fences, windows, decking, garden furniture, railing, external doors and loads of other items. 

  • Suitable For: Small and Large Groups
  • Materials Cost: Based on 20 people - £250 (this could differ depending on what you're painting - for example fence paint is cheaper than external metal paint).
