Ben’s blog – a word from our Chief Executive

In with the new

Historic is not too strong a word for it.  Our move into Church View is a small step for the three of us (staff) but a massive leap for resident-led and owned asset-based economic, social and cultural development in Doncaster.  The new Trust office, meeting and event space is a lovely, light, well-equipped facility that has already hosted our meetings and will welcome people to many more events in the months and years ahead.

We plan an official launch of the space in July.  If you’d like to attend this please contact us.  The friends of Church View, via this site and so-media, will also be invited to a series of gatherings about realising our collective vision for the building – keep an eye out for notices of these.

And finally, come and get your hands dirty!  Calling all green fingered friends: join us in a garden party, to plant-up the terrace at the front of the new space.  We’ve put off doing this until the current drought breaks, but that doesn’t look like ending soon, so we’ll be calling a planting party soon.  This will be followed by a courtyard clear-up, to prepare for the temporary treatment of this inspiring space, while we work-up longer term plans for the ‘green heart’ of the view.
