Cornwall Neighbourhoods for Change (CN4C) opens £10,000 community facility in St Ives

On Saturday 12 July, Cllr Harry Isaacs, the mayor of St Ives, will open CN4C's new £10K facility at Penbeagle, St Ives. Unit 7B is a community building with a difference. It will provide a workspace for a diverse group of organisations and projects, each with their own area of activity, but all working in partnership with CN4C.

CN4C's community operations director, Tarn Lamb, explained: "This is a great example of the way CN4C can invest in the community to make a real difference for the people who live on estates like Penbeagle. All the groups who use Unit 7b are doing great work in their own right, but by bringing them together under one roof they are able to share resources, experiences and expertise - so that everyone gets a better deal."

After cutting the ribbon to open the Unit, the mayor and mayoress will have an opportunity to look around the building and meet some of the people who will be using it. Designed originally as a workshop unit, Unit 7b has been converted to include a community room on the ground floor, and an office space above.

The first groups to work there are:

Community Learning Works providing positive learning experiences to help people back into learning

Between the Years working locally with the St Ives Reminiscence Project to bring people of different ages together to learn new skills and develop relationships across the generations

P-CANE and Ayr Action Group working from a proper community base rather than a volunteer's living room

CN4C is a tenant-led community development organisation creating real and sustainable change by addressing the needs and desires of social housing communities through partnership and participation.


Editor's notes:

Saturday 12 July, 14.00 when Cllr Harry Isaacs, the Mayor of St Ives, accompanied by Mrs Isaacs, the Mayoress, will cut the ribbon and open Unit 7b officially.

Address: Unit 7b, Penbeagle Industrial Estate, Penbeagle Lane, St Ives
