What community space do we need in Ramsey?

Community Indoor Space

Following our community consultation there appeared to be a need for additional ‘indoor space’ for certain activities/groups. These included…

  • A central social/drop-in space for young people
  • A central social/drop-in space for families with young children
  • Groups requiring permanent bases (not space they have to hire by the hour)
  • Equipment storage

Since the consultation other groups have come forward with ideas such as a Business Hub and space for children/people with additional needs or disabilities.

In response to this Ramsey Million Partnership decided to bring together key organisations to look into the use of community spaces in Ramsey Parish. Two major actions came from this collaboration. Firstly to create a directory of community space. Link to draft document below for comment.

The second action was to commission independent consultants to assess if there really is a genuine need or whether by making some adjustments space could be found/utilised within existing buildings. Ramsey Million Partnership are committed to spending money wisely and will not invest large sums of money in additional community space unless absolutely necessary. Therefore this study will help determine the way forward.

We would like as many people as possible to complete the questionnaire – those managing or using buildings and those who would like to run/attend sessions/activities that currently can’t find a home. Everyone’s input is important even if you do not currently use any of the available community spaces. Printable survey and link to online survey available via links below. Please put completed paper surveys in the box in Ramsey Library by 26th February 2016.
