Gedling Youth Club & Community Hub
A number of community groups have come together to work on ambitious plans to convert a former railway station building in Gedling village into a youth centre and community hub.
The Gedling Youth Club Management Committee, Gedling Village Preservation Society and Friends of Gedling Station have revealed new plans, which have been brought to life by Nottingham-based architect Simon Middlecote.
We hope to fully restore the old station building on Shearing Hill to its former glory and also renovate the grounds, adding much needed community space for a multitude of uses by various age groups and activities.
We are currently seeking backing from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Nottinghamshire County Council’s Local Improvement Scheme to help fund this new venture. We also encourage people in the local area to back the plans by donating to our crowdfunding scheme.
The Chairman of the Gedling Youth Club Management Committee, Francis Rodrigues, said, “There was huge public support to save the former youth club and station from residential development and the three local groups coming together reflect that support.”
