Over Twenty volunteers turned out on a nice day in Prestatyn. With a great cross section of ages from Alex who is 8 months old to well lets say “age is only a number” 🙂
Progress continues apace at The Morfa Gateway Project in Prestatyn. The felled trees have been cleared from the site and to further progress the project, Countryside Services team members were there clearing undergrowth ahead of Read more…
Ahead of our launch tomorrow 1st March 2018 Steve has produced an impression of what the Morfa Gateway site could look like during the course of the project. This is only our first idea everything will be shaped and formed by the wishes of our community.
Help Artisans Collective design a community hub – your hub in the centre of Prestatyn.
Currently we are based in a 1965 former library which closed as it was not fit for purpose as a public library anymore.
As a lot of you know over the past 3 years we have developed in to a community hub, due to demand from our users and the local community. All with limited funding and always working on a 2 month rolling lease with our County Council
We have always been community led. Now we need to prove that for the next stage of our development.
Funders such as the National lottery state:
“We believe that the following three approaches are vital to help us achieve our mission and address inequality in Wales. We want all activity we fund to embrace these.
People-led – we want the people who will benefit from, or be affected by your project to be meaningfully involved in the development, design and delivery of your activity.
Strengths-based – we want to encourage organisations to make the most of, and build on, the skills and experiences of people and strengths within communities.
Connected – we want to know that you have a good understanding of what others are doing locally, that what you’re doing complements and adds to this, and that you have working relationships with other relevant groups.”
We hope that you will help Artisans design/develop a community hub fit for the communities needs.
So to kick off here is what we think are essentials for the current building:
- First and foremost new toilets including disabled and baby changing cubicles.
- Fire Escape route for Upstairs
- Vertical transport to allow upstairs access for less able citizens.
We have lots more plans and ideas it will be interesting to see what other community members think.
Please leave your comments below, not just about the building but for instance what other types of activities you would like to see.
