A new heart for Hillfields

AN AMBITIOUS project is underway to create a new heart for Hillfields.

The Hillfields Family & Community Trust is working to build new homes for social rent and to modernise the Hillfields Community Hub, off Thicket Avenue.

Formerly known as Hillfields Youth Centre, the Hub already provides a venue for youth services, music, sporting activities, community groups, health and therapeutic work, and is available for private hire by residents for social events.

But the trust has found a way to provide much-needed new housing for the area and create a long-term source of funding for its community activities, by building 10 new homes at the site.

It is also planning to revamp the Hub, modernising its facilities and making it a more attractive place for residents to use.
