Thank you for coming to our site to find out more about us. We really appreciate your interest in our project, take a look around our site and see the great work we do the some of the fabulous young people who our involved with the station.
We are trying to raise £20,000, in order to open a Community Coffee Lounge in Mansfield for young people to visit and chill out. So far we've raised over £15,000 !!
WHAT WILL BE AT THE COMMUNITY COFFEE LOUNGE?
The Community Coffee Lounge will be aimed at young people in the Ashfield and Mansfield area and will also house our community radio station Takeover Radio 106.9fm. There will be a coffee lounge serving really great coffee, tea, sandwiches and snacks. It will be open during the day and in the evening we will showcase local music, giving a creative atmosphere for young people to gather. It will also house the radio station and training facilities.
The Community Coffee Lounge will allow us to expand our training facilities as we have out grown our current premises. From our new location we will be able to offer training in catering as well as radio presentation while broadcasting to the Ashfield community from a new permanent base. We need your help to move forward and become sustainable for the future, refurbish and fit out the new premises and therefore increase the opportunities for local people to get involved with us.
The coffee lounge will be professionally fitted out giving the young people of Ashfield at welcoming environment to meet and socialise.
WHAT ELSE WILL WE DO?
The coffee lounge will give us enormous flexibility to offer a range of activities. We'll be have a meeting room which will be available to hire by the local community, we will also hold music events, parties and open days! You can keep up to date with our plans on Facebook and Twitter.
We have applying for funding to trusts and foundations to support the project and they have generously supported us.
We have already raised over £12,000 !!
