The primary project is Blueberry Student Magazine. We cover local news, events and light-hearted politics. By renovaing the abandoned building, we want to turn it into a studio/office. Our aim is to nurture the talent of young aspiring journalists and graphic designers by allowing them to visit the building to contribute to Blueberry Student and in the process, earning themselves some extra money. I also plan to run two parallel side community projects. These are: • Providing a place for elderly members of the community, (particularly the vulnerable and isolated) and Adiscome Railway park visitors to come in and enjoy food and drink, • A museum to celebrate the station building and its long haul of history since 1871. The museum will contain photographs, models and statistics
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The historic building, sitting neglected since 1997, will be returned to its former glory by being at the centre of a bustling swarm of activity, re-generating the area and providing a sense of community spirit. With regards to our core project, Blueberry Student Magazine, we will provide pathways into work by helping develop skills and CV’s. We want the project to work collectively, be innovative and be continually working with the community.
Steps to get it done:
Steps to get this done • Transform the old Woodside Station building by re-decorating the interior, • Seek sponsorship from local businesses and the local community to help fund and feel part of the project • Host a series of events to engage the community in the project and seek funding • Purchase second hand Apple Macs, a couple of sets of tables and chairs and a hot drink making facility, e.g. a coffee machine,
