Carnkie Community Institute looks to the future

The Committee of the Carnkie Community Institute is celebrating success after securing investment for the regeneration of the former Men's Institute. The Committee, who have been assisted in their application by the Objective One North Kerrier Regeneration Team, have been offered investment from The Lottery, The Countryside Agency, Carn Brea Parish Council, Kerrier District Council, Cornwall County Council and the Single Regeneration Budget towards the development of a new building in the village.

The new Institute will provide a games/youth room, a social club, snooker club, pool and darts, as well as extending their current provision to incorporate ICT training, rooms for hire and facilities for all ages. The Committee has the support of 60 current members and the interest of outside agencies including Social Services and Link into Learning who wish to use the new high quality facilities upon completion.

Carnkie Community Institute have worked closely with Carn Brea Regeneration Advisory Committee and the North Kerrier Regeneration Team, both of whom are working on a number of schemes across the wider area. Scott James, Community Regeneration Officer for Carn Brea, said that 'This is a key success for the local community, and with the development of facilities and services in rural communities such as Carnkie, it shows that there is a strong commitment to the future of the area'

The AGM of the Carnkie Community Institute was held on Wednesday 21st May, and the large turnout of members was delighted with the news of the investment success.
