Latest Latest news Ellingham's New Facility Ellingham's New Facility Ellingham have been awarded a Big Lottery Fund grant to help pay for construction of a new multipurpose community centre. Construction work is scheduled to start in the next few weeks with the state of the art new facility due to open in December 2017. What are we building? Our Big Lottery funding is being used to demolish our ailing 30 year old portacabin and replace it with a new single storey environmentally sustainable centre from which our I Can Ventures services can be based, promoted and delivered. The new building will boast a number of multifunctional rooms built around a full training kitchen, improved personal care facilities (wet room) and a bespoke training hall. This will include an arts, crafts and jewellery making room, a woodwork room that incorporates an external garden patio/quiet area. The design also has a state of the art media suite, multipurpose meeting hall and a craft/community room for wider community use. Our clients have been involved in the design of the new facility from the outset, and excitement is growing now that their vision is becoming a reality.
