WiNSpace receives £300,000 grant from the UK Government Community Ownership Fund
We want to share the great news with you that we have been granted £300,000 from the Government as part of their Community Ownership Fund. They were impressed with our ambition to upgrade the community centre and are supportive of our plans for the new building.
We worked hard on the grant bid and it was a lot of work. However, we couldn’t have done it without the support of the Parish Council and our local MP John Penrose. We still have a few legal hoops to go through, but we are now one step closer to bringing our new building to life.
With our successful Community Ownership Fund bid we have now launched our ‘Go WiNSpace 24’ campaign which will drive us through to starting the build phase of the project this summer. The latest news about how we are progressing towards our goal can be found on our Go WiNSpace 24 page on our WiNSpace Website.
It is over 43 years since the old Winscombe School was taken over by a newly founded Community Association and developed to become Winscombe Community Centre. This is a major local asset which continues to serve the community well, but there is always a need to look to the future so we are looking at options to move forward with the possible redevelopment of the community buildings. This project as been called WiNSPACE.
And don’t forget there’s a Thursday Market every week
