Greetings to all that have expressed concern at the onslaught and aftermath of Hurricane Irma. Take a moment to see what the JC Recreational Centre has been doing for the past 10 years. After Hurricane Irma visited us there have been a few changes to the roof, weather-proofing wall and drinking water fountain...They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Thank you for your interest and support now to get the slab cleared, the roof and guttering secured and improved and the building weather-proofed again so we can get back to being a safe haven for youth and children, and the community at large .  

Please donate today and check back for updates on our progress.

Greetings friends and supporters of the JC Recreational Centre,

Thank you for supporting us in our continuing mission to return the JC Recreational Centre to a place of social significance in Anguilla.

Here is our latest update from 22nd January giving you a last glimpse of the steel roof as Hurricane Irma left it: https://youtu.be/PUqskIQj3Ts. The good news is that the tradesmen did start work that day (see attached photos).

We appreciate your interest and the way you continue to show your love in this ongoing process. Your support is encouraging. Thank you for caring, donating and sharing these updates with your friends. https://www.gofundme.com/help-the-jc-recreational-centre.

Kind regards,

Recent progress includes:
• Concrete buildings waterproofed and repaired
• Debris removed from the area
• Electricity restored!!!!
We are now ready to tackle taking the entire galvanized roof of the frame.

Greetings friends and supporters of the JC Recreational Centre.

3 months on we are still conquering one challenge at a time.

1. Water proofing of building - The concrete building is 95% secure to prevent flooding every time it rains.
2. Water supply - We have now, (temporarily at least), addressed the water supply and shortage challenge caused as a result of damage to the steel roof that used to collect rainwater, for use around the property by the relocation of the fountain water tank.

Now the three bathrooms at the JC Recreational Centre have running water through an upgraded gravity-fed system.

3. Electricity supply - It has been nearly 5 weeks since the neighbourhood had electricity restored however the fallen pole that services the JCRC was overlooked, preventing reconnection at that time. Good news - the pole is now standing again and the electrician has been contacted to begin the work of restoring the connection. Fingers crossed this will be completed soon, although the limited light during the morning fitness classes has allowed us to enjoy spectacular sunrises!

Next step:
Thank you for your interest and support, and any advice regarding the next stage - THE ROOF!!! - will be gratefully received.

God bless you for helping,

Louis Price
