The old head post office in Kingston is an empty at-risk Grade 2 listed building with great potential for use as a community cultural centre by environmental groups, artists, local charities and support groups, and small/start-up businesses. 

We are a consortium of community groups with a vision for the building that includes a cafe, event and exhibition space, an environment hub, meeting places, studios, workshops, office space... and we worked together for a few years to secure this space for the community and turn the vision into a reality - with some success. We await developments with interest.

Our supporters include: 

Creative Youth

Fusion Arts

Greener Kingston

Kingston Eco-op

Kingston Environment Centre

Kingston Environment Forum

Kingston Fairtrade Group

Kingston Green Radio

Recovery Initiative Social Enterprise 

Save the World Club
