Three organisations from Droitwich, including the Town Council, Droitwich Means Business and the High School, are together bidding for a share of the £3,000,000 Wychavon Community Legacy Grant scheme in order to build The Cabin, a new resource for the town.
The Cabin will be a stand-alone wooden clad building that will be a new and exciting resource for the whole community, a multi-function building which could provide a hub for community support and adult learning, playing host to adult education programmes, community meetings, family information events and for events hosted by such diverse organisations as the police, social care, special educational needs, the health service and many more.
The Cabin will be located next to The Centre, Droitwich Spa High School’s space dedicated to allowing all students to adapt and effectively integrate into high school life.
Paul Buckell, who runs The centre, said: ‘The Cabin is a natural extension of the work of The Centre as it will allow us to reach out to the community beyond school to engage people into what we do here and why it is so important. Although The Cabin will be a valuable addition to the resources of the school for a few hours a day, more importantly, its impact will be felt in a positive way amongst a much wider range of residents of Droitwich and will be an excellent resource for the whole town.
Paul added: ‘This is a really exciting initiative that is being driven by local business, Droitwich Town Council as well as the High School, demonstrating clearly that its value will be felt across the community.
