One of our main achievements to date has been transforming the old Police Station on Woodcock Road into a new community resource centre called The Box.

At The Box, local residents can access a range of activities and services including advice services, IT training, job club, employment support, youth drop-in and a credit union collection point.  In May 2019 we are opening a new Stuff Hub where local residents can borrow tools and equipment for home and garden projects.

The Box For Hire - Are you a member of a community group or organisation?  Are you looking for an affordable place to meet in the Catton Grove area?  The Box can be hired for a range of community uses, either as a regular booking or a 'one-off' session.  Discounted rates available for community groups and organisations based in, or of benefit to residents living in the Big Local area.

For more information about activities and services at The Box give Big Local a call on 07761 426381.
