We want to give a big heartfelt thank you for answering our call for letters of support for the Centenary House, Old coop building project. We are overwhelmed with the support from members, potential members, community of creatives and local partners. These letters have supported our motivation, making 3 large applications for grant funding to support the capital works. We wouldn't be on this journey without your energy & ideas that keep us focussed, these vital funds will get the building back into shape and open its doors for the first time in 20 years.
"There has never been a better opportunity for Local arts centres as they emerge from lockdown to play a vital role in rebuilding our towns and communities. The Coop Hub will play such a role in the economic revival of Morecambe." - Local creative

"The ideals of the Co-operative Movement and Good Things Collective – what a perfect fit. An ex Co-op building which has stood empty for years will provide a more prominent presence for GTC which will further encourage greater involvement by the local community, especially school children" - Interested local resident " Studios spaces, workshop space and dedicated space for dynamic creative ventures can help towards transforming the town and its future. The creative community is in many ways only lack of resources and space for free exchange of ideas really stands in the way of developing this. Once you have this practical creative hub new people will engage, local residents will benefit from accessible opportunities and a great space for learning" - Local creative
This project is key for building the community wealth of the West End and Morecambe. The project will reduce the barriers faced by our community that are currently financially excluded from accessing learning, entering into enterprise and from making environmentally positive choices through collective problem solving.
