J&C Joel supplied a selection of cotton Casement fabric to the St Aidan’s Centre, a children’s centre managed by the Catholic Children’s Society (CCS) in Wythenshawe, Manchester.

The children’s centre offers support to children and their families in the South Manchester area and also hosts a variety of local community events. However, as the centre is based in a converted church building there were major problems with the venue’s acoustics and sound reverberation.

To counter this 95 acoustic dampening cushions were placed on the on the walls of the building. Each cushion consists of a backing board with insulation covered with J&C Joel’s cotton Casement fabric.

The Casement was supplied in the four colours of the CCS logo; tango (CAS007), red (CAS016), gold (CAS006) and rust (CAS010). A quantity of coffee Casement (CAS008) was also supplied for a number of the centre’s acoustic cushions.
