Thanks very much to both restaurants!

Both restaurants are new and local to Hillfields, we thouroughly recommend checking them out for a delicious treat and to support our local businesses. 

So what is this all about?

 

Basically, next door to the community centre there is a piece of land that is currently host to various types of anti-social behaviour and fly tipping. The Hillfields Hub has secured some funding to enable us to develop the site into much needed affordable homes to house local people. The homes will be built and managed by the Hub, with any profit being held by the Hub for the purpose of benefiting the local community of Hillfields.

Our vision for the project is support a thriving and flourishing community in Hillfields, both through providing homes for people who need them, but also through retaining community owned assets that can only ever be used for the benefit of local people.

The homes themselves will be good quality, energy efficient; which will make them cost effective to run and environmentally sustainable - all things that are essential when homes are designed for the people who live in them, rather than for the people who are selling them for profit!

We believe in positive change for Hillfields and see this project as a good opportunity. Please get in touch if you are interested to learn more, have ideas or would like to get involved in some way.

 

 

We would love to hear for you!
