The Milton Creek Country Park Trust has embarked on its most ambitious project to date to build a new community hub in the Park. Having the use of ROOM demonstrated how valuable having a warm dry space is. ROOM has been well used and much appreciated but has proved to be far too small as a venue for community events. Two high dome 40ft shipping containers have been purchased and converted to provide a much larger Space that can be used by all the community for activities, classes and workshops etc.

To complete this dream will need a very considerable sum of money. A grant of £24,345 from the Post Code Lottery fund, which together with other grants and the income from the various events that the Friends have run, has so far secured about £90,000. All the requirements needed to comply with current building regulations and the increase in the cost of building materials means, it is estimated, that another £30,000 will be needed to complete the project. So The Friends are now appealing to all you lovely Park users, friends and families

to help with fundraising. You can donate with PayPal or start a fundraiser.  If anyone has any ideas about events, sponsored activities and challenges please do get in touch at

Here is the plan of what will be delivered. The large storage container, with the mural, has been relocated to the back of Space.
