Harriett Baldwin witnesses our continued rise
Friday 21st Sept 2018
Harriett Baldwin, Member of Parliament for West Worcestershire paid a visit to the Malvern Cube to learn how the centre has continued to serve the community even after it’s recent fire and how the improvements will help to increase the overall services that are being offered.
Mrs Baldwin met with Treasurer Matthew Chuck, Trustee Jill Terry and Youth Co-ordinator Kelda White during her visit to the centre on Albert Road North.
The MP was shown around the facilities by Centre Manager Jon White and got to see the damage that was caused by the recent fire. In August part of the Cube building caught fire during the early hours of the morning, due to an electrical fault. The back-stage kitchen and Green Room were completely destroyed.
However, despite those rooms having to be closed down the centre continued to provide a huge range of services to the community and also hosted the recent Cube Shuffle
The Cube Shuffle has become an annual event and this year was it’s 5th and this year we also hosted an evening gig with local bands, Arcadia Roots and Skewwhiff who stepped up to offer to play a fund-raising gig to help raise money towards the repair costs.
The event helped to raise over £1K which is essential to ensure the refurbishments and improvements will provide an even better space for the community.
Harriett Baldwin MP thanked the members of the Malvern Cube and the many volunteers who have worked hard throughout these trying times.
Harriett commented: “The Malvern Cube is a fantastic local resource and it was reassuring to know that the centre’s operation has been largely unaffected by the fire.
“It has gone from strength to strength since Worcestershire County Council leased the building to local people who have worked so hard to create this community asset.
“The fire was clearly a setback but I am pleased to help share the message that its operation continues as normal as the repair project gets underway.”
