The Arts and Crafts Awakening project is now working on using the former Long Street School hall as a place for community events and activities – an urban village hall. With Lindsey and Chris from Locality, we are planning to submit a Lottery ‘Awards for All’ scheme to get things off the ground this year.
Middleton is short of community space, so there is a real need for this. Community activities will also complement our longer terms plans for commercial uses. The meeting (on Tuesday 17th Feb) was very successful with the largest attendance so far. We also began setting up a local history archive and study area in two of the classrooms.
The next meeting is set for 6pm Wednesday 4th March. Don’t miss it!
