Community Space

The Qube


PECDT would like to ask for input to support its efforts to secure a permanent community space on the High Street.

We are currently in discussion with council and it seem likely that the current site that The Qube is on will be taken up by the development of new homes and shops.
During its short life which began in March 2016, it has benefited many community groups and individuals. It has become a focal point on the High Street and has offered several events and activities for local people. The Qube, managed by the PECDT has proven that there is great need for local affordable space and without it there will be less opportunities to bring communities together. 

Activities so far:
Fitness classes, tuition groups, health awareness talks, police surgeries, ward forums, partnership meetings, private parties, religious groups, festivals, community engagement consultations, business promotions. Exhibitions, film screenings, heritage club meetings, arts and crafts events, gardening clubs and employment training.

If you can see the benefit of having a community space on the High street, we would like your help to put forward a request to the council to help us secure a permanent space. 
We have attached a questionnaire for you to complete and ask that you get as many of your family, friends and group users to fill out the questionnaire and return it to us here at PECDT office by the 9th of February 2018.

You can return your response by email to the following address: roomhirepecdt@btconnect.com using the subject line ‘Community Space Response’.
Alternatively you can print your response and hand it in, Vincent House, 2E Nags Head Rd, Enfield EN3 7FN.
