Aspire Ryde

Transforming an old church building to operate our community building, strengthen our volunteers’ recruitment experience and review the skills of our board of trustees. We undertook a far-reaching community consultation to better understand the needs and aspirations, to help steer our direction and focus.

Overwhelmed by the public’s continued support for our efforts, we are encouraged to continue to grow and develop a truly local service to improve our area
