Residents are being invited to see and then have their say on plans to transform a former station building into a new youth and community hub for Gedling Village.

A group of volunteers have been working to raise funding to give the former Gedling Station building on Shearing Hill a new lease of life and benefit the local community.

The Victorian station building, which also housed a youth club in the past, had been under threat of demolition before a successful campaign was launched to save the building. The Friends of Gedling Station now want to turn it into a community facility and have applied for funding from the National Heritage Lottery to help make their dream a reality.

The volunteers have been working over the past year to restore the building and once further funding arrives, final work will begin to transform it into the hub.

Plans have been drawn up by local architect Simon Middlecote and these will be on display at an event on Saturday, July 24 between 10am and 4pm. There will also be a PowerPoint presentation outlining plans.
