Work on the flats and market square has begun..

Recently, we were awarded some funding from Power to Change to begin work on our first homes in the flats above the bakery.

To complete this work we are running a training programme from local young people in partnership with the Rotunda College. The 26 week programme will begin with the trainees building their own classroom on the market square, along with any of the things designed by participants from our community design course who have been designing the market square for the past few months. These include new planters and tables and chairs for the community to use.

The trainees will work with architects to then build the flats.

We will be posting regular stories on our blog from both the trainees working on the flats as well as the participants from the community design course – sign up for our newsletter in the footer of our website to be notified of updates.
