Fearon Hall 'Upcycle Your Life'

Fearon Community Association runs Fearon Hall a community centre in the Lymington and Hastings ward of Loughborough. They offer a friendly and welcoming environment along with a range of versatile spaces for community use and hire.

The SHIRE Recycling grant has supported the community centre by providing funding to run a series of events titled 'Upcycle Your Life'. The objective of these events is to build a community of likeminded individuals with a common goal of reducing, recycling and reusing.
'Upcycle Your Life' aims to enable residents and communities to come together and get involved in these waste related goals in a fun, creative and supportive environment.
The events include themes focused on the home, garden, self care and wellbeing, food waste and reuse and repair.
The events have received positive feedback and the centre plans on run sessions to help maintain the momentum which has built up within the community.
