Update December 2017

 

We are on-track (thanks to support from Ocean Housing who supplied us with builders and decorators) to open the front of the building by 5th February 2018. We are hopeful that our first tenants will move in then and that we will have a computer room available for use by the local job club, debt advice services and others who need a small space for meetings, etc.

 

 

                        

 In January 2018, we need volunteers to help us decorate and clean some of the spaces in the building.The dates we are looking at are:

  • Monday 8th Jan                                    Friday 12th Jan
  • Monday 15th Jan                         Friday 19th Jan
  • Monday 22nd Jan                        Friday 26th Jan

The building will be open between 9am and 5pm on these days. If you would like to come and give us a hand, even for part of a day, that would be great. You must be reasonably fit and agile as the work will be repetitive and likely to involve some stretching, lifting and carrying. You must be over 16 years old and wear your own old clothes suitable for decorating. Tea and biscuits will be provided, but please bring your own lunch if you intend to come a whole day. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Kevin Marsh on 01208 873 166 so we can get an idea of volunteer numbers.

 

Building work will continue on the First Floor during January and February. We then hope to have another blitz of volunteer decorating in March, so that the whole of Cornubia can be made ready for use from the 1st May 2018. If anyone is interested in hiring spaces in Cornubia, they can make a booking by calling Sally on 01726 812710 or emailing parbayct@gmail.com

 

Finally, we have started recruiting for a Development Manager who will be responsible for developing and implementing the vision for Cornubia to make it a recognised centre of excellence for creativity, enterprise and community engagement. This will include developing income streams through marketing, partnerships, and fundraising to make the business sustainable within 5 years. Details for the position can be found at http://parbaybiglocal.org.uk/job-vacancy/ The deadline for applying for this post is the 8th January 2018.

 

May we take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and best wishes for 2018.
