December 2023 – WiNSpace receives £300,000 grant from the UK Government Community Ownership Fund

The Trustees agreed in July 2023 that we must deliver the new facilities as soon as possible and are now preparing to start building in the summer of 2024.  This will be via a more cost-effective approach staying within our means, using a smaller building footprint but delivering our promise to you.

Our Phased Approach
Phase One:– Replace the Youth Club and Art Shed with our originally proposed two storey building but utilising the 1st floor space, providing:

  • An Event function space on the 1st Floor with stairs and lift access. (roughly twice the size of current main hall)
  • An Activity Space on the ground floor (slightly smaller than current main hall)
  • A Dividable Meeting Space (half the size of current main hall)
  • Office space(s) on the 1st Floor
  • A fully equipped catering kitchen
  • A large foyer and patio area
  • Retention of the field with biodiversity enhancements

Phase Two:– Refurbish the old school with a focus on Youth and Arts and removing the Annexe
Future:– When the Parish requires it and has the finances, build the large hall along with the addition carparking
