Wow! What a difference!
Hello OB peeps!
We are sending a mini-update to let you know that the kind folk of Crowdfunder have allowed us to extend for a final last push.
We want to use this time to capture the numbers and comments of local supporters to include in important funding bids that we’re putting together this month. That’s why even £1 and a comment will make a huge difference to the success of the project, so please do spread the word through your networks!
Thank you so much for your support so far. Numbers are growing, as is the list of rewards available. New additions: Bookbuster vouchers, creative time in the building, a tour of the America Ground with phd student and co-owner of the OB Jess Steele and local historian Steve Peak plus much more. Grab them while you can!
Wishing you a wonderful week, and a fabulous May Day bank holiday.
The OB team
Above: Robin Crowley's model of the proposed uses of the OB, now on display in our front window. Note: this shows interim uses.
Initial proposed plans include a thriving leisure destination on the alley level, mezzanine and ground floors, co-working spaces on the first floor, artist-maker spaces on the second and third floors, a construction workshop to support the renovation, and a roof garden and bar looking out to sea.
The second and third floors will eventually be converted to flats to be let at capped rents. Work won’t begin on these before mid-2021 as funding allows.
