The building is expected to cost in excess of £1,000,000. The money is expected to be obtained from three primary souces:

  • Fund raising by the Horringer Court community
  • Grants from funding bodies
  • Loans

The Horringer Court Community Hub is working to ensure that the project is well funded prior to the commencement of building works in order to minimse ongoing costs and the consequent rent. The combination of great facilities at a fantastic price will be irresistible to the wider community.

The running costs of the Horringer Court Community Hub building will be paid for by the users of the building. The rental income generated by the building will cover ongoing and maintenance costs and service any loans obtained to complete the building.

The three groups comprising the Horringer Court Community Hub will be the primary providers of rental income but the wider community will find the flexible, multi-use facilities provided by the building ideal for almost every activity. Some of the envisaged activities are described in the articles listed at the side of this page.

If you are a member of a group which you believe would be interested in using the hub facilities or a group which might want to expand into the hub facilities, do please get in touch so that we can ensure that the hub meets and exceeds your requirements.

 

The Horringer Court Community Hub facilities will be a flexible, multi-use space to satisfy the diverse needs of the Horringer Court community.

In order to make the facilities a reality, a fundraising committee needs to be formed with members of the community to generate the necessary funds. If you are interested in joining the committee or helping with the fundraising, please contact us.

The Horringer Court community has long recognised the need for a comfortable, spacious hub where people could meet and be refreshed or informed, entertained or perform. A place where the quality of life of the entire community could be improved. The community has also recognised the need for a venue where it can come together to decide its own future.

The building will be sufficiently spacious to support parallel activities ensuring that it is a bustling hub at the heart of the community.

The picture below is a concept drawing showing the possible outline of a building and associated parking spaces in its context within the grounds of the school.

Proposed optional building outline

The hub will be most easily accessible on foot but there will be significant car-parking facilities. The picture below is a concept drawing which shows a possible layout for the inside of the building.

Proposed internal layout of the building

The Studio allows dance and performance activities during the day while the Multi-purpose Hall accomodates people meeting to relax and enjoy each others company while talking, learning, shopping or being cared for. The purposes to which the two major spaces can be put might completely change come the evening.
