During the pilot phase our aim is to test whether we can create a special space which will have three complimentary ‘pillars’ of work. These would benefit local people, the wider community as well as create a sustainable income.
Hosting a work space for sole-traders and a hub for networking
On Monday-Fridays the space would provide a quiet, professional working space for up to 35 local self-employed individuals who need a hot-desk and communal area to work.
Membership to this work club would run for a trial 5 month period at a cost of £94.00 a month. A meeting room and phone-zone would be available as would high quality wi-fi, free coffee/tea.
The shared work space will be open from 9am - 5pm Mon-Friday
Supporting young people as they find their place in the future of work.
As part of our commitment to support new businesses five work desks would be freely made available for local young people (18- 25 yrs) who are wanting to establish their business.
All members using the workspace will be offered the opportunity to informally support these young people, and help incubate new ideas.
The space will become the ‘home’ of the Facework project which helps young people acquire the soft-skills needed for the changing world of work.
Helping the community by supporting local people to host events.
On Friday, Saturday and Sundays evenings, the hall would be available to hire for members to run events. In the main these events would be private functions,training, a team away-day, or local festival events. Please note our current license restricts us from hosting events which involve live music.
Arrangements for the sale of alcohol or food would be under the strict oversight of the license holder.
Club Members would have priority for booking the space and all those involved in running events would need to agree to the HH code of ethics.
