Treneere Estate, Penzance is known to be one of the most deprived in the South West.  In the centre of Treneere Estate is the once dilapidated community centre, The Colcoombe Centre.  For many years a number of community groups have tried to use this space to build and strengthen community spirit using a wide range of inititives but the building and its infrastucture failed them all everytime.  When Whole Again Communities WAC took over the lease a cry for help was put out and answered by RSW.  We put together a 2 week action plan and working closely with local suppliers such as Asda, RGB Building Supplies and Tesco we carried out an almost miraculous make over.  Ably assisted again by the hugely supportive local Job Centre Plus, we utilised the skills of local claimants with the intention of also moving their lives forward.
