Welland park cafe bid unsuccessful

As some of you will be aware at the end of May this year the Charity HFT quit the Welland Park café that they had been running for many years. The reason for this was that they could not make a profit from the business and due to merging with another charity a business review was conducted after which it was decided not to continue providing this service as a placement for their service users.

Harborough District Council placed the café lease onto the open market looking for expressions of interest to run and improve the service provided at this site.
Hearing about this late in the day a group of interested community members met, including Transition and Green Party volunteers, and decided to submit a bid to run the café as a Community owned not for profit Social enterprise that would allow the HFT service users to continue their valuable placements in the community facing business and would develop the cafe as a local food hub and community meeting space.

A massive amount of effort was invested in a very short time as there was only just over a week until the submission date was due. With the enthusiasm and guidance of Becky Nixon and other core volunteers a number of stakeholder organisations were identified and committed to supporting the proposal, and we discussed options with potential funders.

Although shortlisted, our proposal was unfortunately not accepted by HDC. They had concerns about how quickly we could open and the viability of our model as it depended on some initial start up funding, although we were confident we could get this.  So despite being a social enterprise meant that longer term we could bring funding into the café that a business wouldn’t be able to, and that we wanted the café to support more vulnerable members of the community and create opportunities for them, HDC  didn’t want to take this risk.

We were obviously disappointed by this decision but look forward to the opening of the café under its new proprietors and wish them the very best of luck in their new venture. At the time of writing (6 and a half weeks later) the café is still closed and there doesn’t seem to be any information about what is happening,  which is a shame as by far the greatest proportion of its takings are during the summer months and it is the loss of a great facility for the use of the  community.

Welland Park Community Cafe Vision and Plan FINAL

Welland Park Community Cafe consortium

WellandParkCafe_smallThree weeks ago it was published in the Harborough mail that HFT was giving up its lease on the cafe in Welland Park. HFT had been running the cafe at a loss  as a way of giving work placements to its service users, people with learning disabilities. Although this was the first we had heard of this, it transpired that HFT had given 2 months notice to Harborough District Council and would be quitting as of May 31st.

There was a lot of discussion taking place on various social media platforms around Harborough on how the cafe could be run by the community and also to allow the HFT service users to continue in their valued roles, so we decided to call an open meeting to gauge appetite for this project which was held on the 12th of May in the cafe itself.

A healthy debate was held between members of the public and stakeholder organisations who attended and it was decided that we should submit a proposal to the Council for a community not-for-profit model to run the venue.

As is the way with Transition, the right people were at the meeting that we needed to make this possible. Becky Nixon and Darren Woodiwiss (With Becky doing by far the Lions share of the work) ploughed on .We did our research and bounced ideas this way and that as well as modelling what the finances might look like and in the 9 days available created what looks to be a robust proposal ready in time for submission deadline of 5pm on the 2oth of May.

The decision was due on the 22nd but as we write this today (27th) we are unaware of a decision having been made yet.

Thanks must go to the organisations who stood up to be part of this proposal and the local Councillors of the Welland ward in Harborough for their support.

2015 Planning event

Transition Town Market Harborough and Market Harborough Environment Group

Planning event 8th January 2015

Open space in 2 hours

We were gratified to see a good turn out for this new event to our calendar, a planning event to help answer the posed question :

“What can we do to improve the sustainability of Market Harborough in 2015 and beyond”

We started with a ceremonial cutting of a cake to celebrate the union of “Transition Town Market Harborough” and the newly names “Market Harborough Environment Group”. This beautiful cake was the  joint effort of Mary Dank’s and Mary Green. From the rest of the group we thank you!

Mary Dank’s and Darren Woodiwiss cut the TTMH+MHEG celebration cake

The event was split into two phases, draw out the subjects we wished to discuss and then come up with a list of actions and answers which could form the basis of future projects.

The subjects

We handed out post-it notes and asked the group for ideas for subject headers that we could discuss during the evening. We had many suggestions, some of which were answers to the as yet unasked questions but Mark Baverstock and Darren Woodiwiss went through the responses to group them into logical subjects which were then written onto record cards.

When all of the responses were collated we reviewed the grouped responses by Darren reading them out aloud and asking the group if they agreed on the subject headers.

We had eight slots for discussion over the evening and so needed to select the ones that we wished to discuss. We mused the idea of a clap-o-meter and a cheer-o-meter but in the end elected by consensus to a show of hands.

One subject had little or no support and so was discarded, Transport & Pollution and Food & Health were combined to make two subjects.

Mrs Ford at the board

Mark Baverstock adds the subjects to the board

  Table A Table B Table C Table D
Round 1 Enterprise Awareness of TTMH and MHEG Waste Transport and Pollution
Round 2 Bio-diversity Energy Education and the inner Transition Food & Health

 

Harvesting ideas

The next phase is to collect the answers to the question under the subject header, We planned to run two rounds of harvesting run over four tables with each round lasting 30 minutes with 15 minutes to review the feedback.

So as not to guide the responses we have deliberately not informed the group about any projects that are currently in fly, this will also guide us as to the community penetration of such projects.

After group feedback sessions in each round we finished at 9.40… only 10 minutes late thanks to the judicious use of my bicycle horn!

Group discussions at the tables

** Planning Workshop 2015
————————————————————

** Help create our projects
————————————————————

Hi there,

Transition Town Market Harborough, including the Market Harborough Environment Group – a growing network of local groups and individuals involved with the environment and sustainability are excited to invite you to our first ever planning workshop posing the question: “What can we do to improve the Sustainability of Market Harborough in 2015 and beyond”. We will looking to get your questions and their answers that help us to understand this and plan for what needs to be done.

Have you ever stopped to wonder if there is a better way of doing things and why we allow things to continue as they do, have you wondered what the right questions are to get to the correct answers?

We will be running the session as an “Open Space” session, a special way of running workshops, so hopefully it will be a fun as well as rewarding evening. A bit about “Open space”:

Have you ever been to a conference, business or otherwise, where the delegates are seated and spoken at by speakers of varying ability? The history behind “Open Space” is rooted in the observation that more networking was done and information exchanged in the coffee breaks than in the business of these events and hence “open space” was devised to create an open and creative space for ideas.

It would be great if you were able to have a think before the event about any questions or answers that you would like to discuss at the workshop.

We are looking for about 8 topics for the evening, but don’t worry we will go through a brainstorming session on the evening to find the favorite 8.

What is going well ? What isn’t working ? What hasn’t been addressed ? Is it possible to do this ?

What do we hope to get from this event ? We would like to have some questions and a series of things that we can do as a community to deliver solutions to them. These will help form the projects that you and us undertake together as a community over the next year and into the future.

We look forward to seeing you at the Angel Hotel on Thursday January 8^th ready for a 7.30 start, finish by 9.30 .

best wishes

Darren, Mark and the team!

** Press Release
————————————————————

** Two prominent local environment groups have joined forces
————————————————————

** Transition Town Market Harborough [TTMH] and the newly launched Market Harborough Environment Group [MHEG] – with its Love Where You Live and Morsbag initiatives – are two grass roots groups aiming to impact positively on the local environment. In combining resources each has renewed their commitment to working with the community to make a more sustainable Market Harborough.

The move – celebrated at the AGM on Saturday – is especially welcome because MHEG – formerly the Harborough Improvement Team [HIT] Environment Group has had a period of uncertainty following the winding up of HIT.

Darren Woodiwiss from TTMH said:

“We are delighted to welcome the Environment Group to Transition Town Market Harborough. There is a natural synergy in our aims and by working together we can both be more effective.”

Mary Danks from the newly formed MHEG said:

“We are very excited to be working alongside TTMH as we enter a new era in our recycling and litter action work.”

————————————————————

** Notes for editors
————————————————————

** Transition Town Market Harborough runs local community led projects to rebuild local resilience and sustainability. It was founded in 2007 and is the 22^nd member of the Transition Town Network.

Currently MHEG’s initiatives include:

————————————————————

** Market Harborough Love Where You Live and Work
————————————————————

** Named after a Keep Britain Tidy initiative. The group promotes recycling as part of its aims.

————————————————————

** Morsbag pod
————————————————————

** which recycles fabric to create free reusable bags to raise awareness of, and replace, environmentally damaging plastic bags

N² Community garden & Orchard proposal

=COMMUNITY GARDEN PROPOSAL=

As you may be aware, the community surrounding the disused garages site situated between Newcombe Street and Naseby close in Market Harborough have held a desire to establish a community garden and orchard on this land since 2009.

The site was put up for auction in May this year and we understand that the council executive will decide the final fate for this plot of land on the 1st December.

To this effect we have taken the opportunity to prepare a proposal document that outlines the core ideals of what we would like to achieve. We have held two well attended community meetings where these proposals have been discussed.

We understand the difficult financial position that the Council is in, and as such have never sought for the land to be gifted to the community. Instead we are proposing that the community be given the chance to raise funds to purchase the site thus giving the Council a reasonable return for this asset.

We would welcome the opportunity to develop our plans with yourselves to create a valuable community asset.
