58 Flaxley Road

Our Space

In 2019 Selby Big Local bought a derelict shop in the heart of the Big Local area, to transform into a vibrant, community owned and community-led space. This followed four years of talking to residents to understand what issues are most important to them. Finding a place for residents to come together and make “community happen” was a priority. 58 Flaxley Road is just a building; what is important to us is the people that visit it, the residents that come to think of it as a safe and welcoming haven, and for the opportunities that having a community owned space, that responds to local priorities, can bring to the wider community.

We are about change for our community and we have called 58 Flaxley Road, ‘Our Space’.

As residents we believe in our community and the power of honest and authentic voices to bring about change.

We see Our Space as a place for socialising, learning and enterprise, offering everything from cookery classes, workshops and classes, after-school activities to volunteer-led projects, but what the space offers is up to you!

We have been working with Thread Architects to co-design the space and create physical plans to reflect the community vision. We’re working hard to secure funding and we hope building work to start in Spring 2021. In the meantime, we will be running a full programme of events and activities to provide alternative opportunities for us to come together as a community, socialise and learn and we welcome all local residents to get involved.

Please follow us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to find out more and keep in touch.
