We want to turn our old community hall into an environmental centre for the whole community and the estate grounds into a green conversation class room area.

Our community hall is used for tenants and residents meetings which is great but we want it to do more We want to make the hall and outside space for the whole community and create an local environment centre. The community hall inside to be made disabled access and training and community healthy eating and cooking can take place. We would have weekly cooking and growing classes and sessions for all generations and the whole community and also make the space available for those with access requirements and those with learning difficulties We want people to come together over food and growing and teach and learn about environment issues and how we can make changes together in an urban setting. We also want to have an accessible outside green house and shed and develop a community growing area. We want to extend the inside outside and use our hall and outside space as a garden room room for green conversations

What we'll deliver:

  • make small building improvement inside to address accessible space and reorder the kitchen and toilets
  • build a zen garden for those with mental health issues
  • build small compost area with composter
  • build small garden shed for wheelchair users
  • build small greenhouse for access wheel chair users and outside site training for the whole community

Why it's a great idea:

The community hall is not properly wheelchair accessible and this would be a whole life improvement. The project would continue the accessible theme by building a greenhouse and shed that is also properly accessible The whole community is involved addresses diversity and the inter-generations The whole community is empowered to do something environmental and enrich by learning together We would make space for young people, for the older resident and or those with physical difficulties and those with learning and or mental health difficulties difficulties When the whole community owns a space the gang and drug problem is reduced as the space is no longer a no go.area..

Steps to get it done:

  • 99 households at minimum will have the opportunity to engage in these activities by the end of the year

The legacy would be for future generations as well as addressing the improvements beneficial to the current generations. A learning hall and learning space addressing environmental issues would also be model to roll out across the borough and could also be offered to local schools to use as an outside classroom.
