• Surprise new kitchen for Community Green

  • The Greenwich social services day centre users and staff of Community Green had a nice surprise when they arrived at their centre one Monday morning - a brand new kitchen supplied by Premiere and fitted by the Greenwich Apollo team.

  • Community Green is a day centre for young and older adults with learning disabilities where the service users can take part in various arts, crafts and socialise. The Greenwich Apollo team had become firm friends with the staff and service users after hosting two Christmas discos, a summer Hawaiian themed picnic and hosting a ‘design your own T shirt’ workshop.

  • Once the old kitchen had been completely removed, and plumbing and electrical work completed, Apollo‘s Scott McNeil, Tadas Murauskas and Ricky McNeil set to work fitting the new units and worktops kindly supplied free of charge courtesy of Premiere Kitchens.
    The kitchen was officially opened by Greenwich Councillor and Cabinet Member for Health for adults and older people Peter Kotz, with Apollo Divisional Manager Brian Stern, Project Manager Dick Bessent and from Premiere Kitchens Marc Zbinden and Jamie DeOliveira.
    The Community Green service users had prepared a selection of cakes in their new kitchen for their guests and created some personalised gifts for Apollo and Premiere to mark the occasion and say thank you.
  • “I would like to thank Apollo and Premiere for the work they’ve done, not just by donating this fantastic kitchen but also the work they’ve done with people with learning difficulties. It’s good to see true collaboration between Greenwich Council and private companies doing so much for local communities.” 

    Peter Kotz, Greenwich Councillor. 

    “I wanted to thank Apollo and Premiere from the bottom of my heart for all your kindness and consideration towards us. I and all the service users and staff really do appreciate all that you do for us and all the amazing things you have done for us in the past. The new kitchen will really open up a new world for the service users and help to teach them hygiene and food preparation skills helping them to be more independent.”

    Fran Dalton, Community Green.
