Our Building Project

Our vision

Our vision is for a new kind of Community Space that supports a fairer and more sustainable local society.

Much time and negotiation has been spent designing a series of facilitated and adaptable Community spaces to ensure;

  • An inclusive and welcoming environment
  • Something for everyone
  • Spaces to hire
  • Spaces to test ideas and train in new skills
  • Space and activities to volunteer in
  • Spaces to feel part of
  • Spaces that support current passions and challenges locally
  • Spaces that support happier, healthier and more connected communities.

This has been one of our most challenging and exciting Boiler House projects. 3 years ago, we started having conversations with local people about what their priorities where for the site.

Now, after various delays, complications, Breixt, Covid, Funding restrictions and raising costs. We are ready to start! and bring this new community resource to life. 

This includes;

  • More green spaces to enjoy and socialise in
  • More affordable sports and fitness facilities
  • More safe spaces and activities for children and young people to enjoy. We have worked with both Assemble Architects on the initial concept and then Sanchez Benton Architects, who have worked patiently with us ever since.

Works have slowly started, with the main building works due to be completed in February 2023

We Need Your Help

Can you help us to complete this project and make the dream a reality?! We need

  • Funding – increased costs and the unfortunate costs incurred by sharing a wall with Network Rail mean we are still £200,000 short of this £1million project. (donate here button)
  • We need volunteers! Particularly those keen on gardening and helping us to maintain the new garden (volunteer button).
