A VILLAGE community centre is being revamped.
The roof of the St Mark's Parish and Community Centre in Longwood is being replaced at a cost of £11,500.
After that, it is hoped a new kitchen and disabled toilets will be installed.
The vicar, the Rev Jim Hunt (pictured), said the roof - the original one from the 1950s - was simply worn out.
The work is being paid for by cash from Huddersfield Common Good Trust, St Mark's Players and other groups and members of the church who use the centre.
Church officials have also obtained an interest-free loan.
Mr Hunt added: "Once we have the new kitchen we hope the centre will be more attractive to hire.
"It is already very busy with uniformed organisations, karate club and line dancing," he said.
Mr Hunt is appealing to parents of children who use the centre to offer their services for free to carry out the work on the kitchen and disabled toilet if they are skilled plumbers, electricians or joiners.
Work on the roof will start immediately and people will be written to soon regarding cash for the toilets and kitchen.
