St Andrew's Community Hub
What are we doing ?
We want to create a community space in St Andrew's Church for Carlton and the surrounding villages, particularly to support the more isolated and vulnerable in our rural community. The plans are shown below.
The National Lottery Community Fund has recently approved our bid to them and we now have all of the funds needed to start building our Hub. News about when the building work begins will appear here soon.
Why are we doing it ?
Carlton has a growing population, and this growth is expected to continue.
St Andrew's Church is the only public building in Carlton.
79% of respondents to the 2011 Parish Plan wanted a community facility in the church.
When are we doing it ?
The building work should take 12 months to complete, starting in 2021.
Who is doing it ?
The project is led by Carlton Parochial Church Council with its associated charity The Friends of St Andrew's Church Carlton and is supported by Carlton Parish Council.
Carlton has received substantial pledges towards the project from AR Demolition, Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council, Leicestershire County Council, the Garfield Weston Foundation, the Bernard Sunley Foundation and the National Lottery Community Fund, with many additional donations from charities and individuals. Thank you all.
Though we now have the money we need to build the Hub, you can still support the project by making a donation. Each donor will be added to a scroll of honour to be located in the Hub. Please contact Robin Arnold for further information at email@example.com
Cheques should be made payable to The Friends of St Andrew's Church Carlton.
Full planning permission for the works was granted on 23rd July 2019, and drawings and background information can be found on the Borough Council website under planning application number 19/00834/FUL.
