We’re trying the save the Cuthbert for the community.
We’ve passed the first hurdle
Thanks to the help and support of many people who have given their support, ideas, memories and signatures to our campaign, we have passed the first hurdle: the Cuthbert has been listed as an Asset of Community Value.
What does this mean? That the current owners must notify the council if they wish to sell, triggering a six-month period in which a community group such as ourselves can put ourselves forward as bidders, and raise the necessary funds.
There’s still a long way to go but this is a significant step forward.
What’s the plan?
We would like to create a community space: for the community, run by the community. A not-for-profit or co-operative endeavour that would strive to enhance the physical, social and emotional wellbeing of all those that live in the Queens Park, Craven Vale, Bakers Bottom and Kemp Town areas.
