VOLUNTEERS at Norton Priory have been given a new home thanks to a grant from the Learning and Skills Council and Halton Borough Council's adult learning team.
The grant enabled the priory to create a volunteer and community suite within the grounds.
The suite will provide an accessible space for volunteers to meet and have a break, as well as take part in courses, activities and projects.
Ellen Fenton, volunteer development officer at Norton Priory, said: 'The new facilities mean that we can offer so much more to our volunteers and to community groups.
'Volunteers now have their own space where they can socialise and get involved in all sorts of activities and which they can call their own.'
The suite was created with help from Norton Priory Volunteers, Halton Conservation Project, students from The Vocational College in Widnes, volunteers from Thorn Cross Young Offenders Institute and young people volunteering through Connexions and STOPPS.
