FRRL ‘Know Your Place’ Community Trails

Children’s Writing Competition

Building Project:

Rock Road Library is part of the Cambridgeshire Community Hub Programme; this encompasses a  range of activities beyond libraries and fosters partnerships which aim to:

 make savings – via shared services; greater efficiency; providing an income stream
 unblock potential – expanding opening hours; using assets wisely; connecting with other services
 value joined-up working – the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.

To support these objectives, FRRL are planning further refurbishment of the building –  to make Rock Road library an exciting and indispensable place within our community.  The following documents below the project’s progress to date:

– Autumn 2017, front garden working group inaugural meetings

– January 2017,  opening ceremony for the new community kitchen!

– December 2015, successful application for Section 106 Funding to refurbish the kitchen and open doorways into the Community Room: Rock_Road_Library_S106_application_community_facilitiesv2
