PART OF CAP (Community Associations of Peterborough)

Padhome Road Eastfield Peterborough PE1 5EN

My name is Pat Braines. I have been at this complex for over 27 years, I started coming to a mother & toddlers group then was asked if I wanted a job as cleaner. I accepted the job and did it for many years, after which I became a steward on several occasions, going backwards & forwards on my bike. Then in 1998 I got my car, and what a difference that made! In 1988 I married my late husband Adrian and we had been together for over 30 years.  I have 3 children and a granddaughter, and my eldest son is now a father to my grandson.

I became the Chairperson of the complex in June 2000, and through the work with the committee have had the complex painted, new curtains, banquet chairs etc. I have seen many changes in and around the complex and I would like to say a thank you to the Probation Service for the help they give us on Sundays with cleaning and general labour in and outside the centre.

I now run the Wednesday Night Bingo session and have a Kraft Club on Monday Nights. I also help Andy with his Ancestry & Computer Club on Monday Afternoon. I enjoy being here and enjoy meeting the clientele, who come in the complex and I have made many friends of the people that come and book the complex for private events and who come back time and again year after year. I hope to be here for a good many years more.

Yours Pat Chairperson
