Community Ownership option

We are currently researching the idea of purchasing and refurbishing the Henry Jenkins as a community ownership enterprise and will be publishing the results on this website and emailing out to our email list as information comes in.

You can read a summary of the idea – Summary – Community Ownership idea

The research is to see if it is financially viable and community supported to purchase, refurbish and run the Henry Jenkins and what services could be offered.

The investigation will start with research into all areas of the idea and obtaining input from persons and organisations in the Kirkby Malzeard and surrounding area community.

Once the investigation is finished and if it is concluded that the idea is possible and would be of benefit, then we will present the results to the community.

We will use the name “Henry Jenkins Community Cooperative” for the time being when corresponding regarding the community ownership option.
