Hatcham House - Community work space.
Hatcham House - Community work space. joined Lewisham Hive1 week ago

In 2016 the Grade II listed Hatcham Liberal Club building in New Cross South London was sold and transformed into luxury flats. However, a stipulation was made that a section of the restored building had to remain a member's hall. In 2020 a group of local people established a Community Interest Company to trial a new purpose for this hall and despite COVID restrictions have proved that a new business model can work so as to presever this precious community asset and re-model the space so it becomes a new, inclusive 'hub' for people needing somewhere to work (hot desking), somewhere to hatch new enterprises, and run community events. We have consulted with local people, proved there is demand for a new purpose with over 60 members already signed up. Prior to Covid we also ran successful fundraising concerts, exhibitions and employment training sessions for young people. We now have the opportunity to purchase the hall and keep it as a precious community jewel for local people.
