The Market Hall in Crowle has reopened as a community hub as part of North Lincolnshire Council’s £5m community investment programme.

The work has included installing a training kitchen on the first floor, remodelling the ground floor to be open plan and decorating the building.

Brigg and Goole MP Andrew Percy visited the Market Hall to see the new facility.

Crowle community hub will offer information, advice and guidance on council and community services and facilities, a library, access to computers, healthy lifestyle advice , reminiscence sessions, coffee mornings, children and adult group activities and community space.

Visitors will also be able to access a pop-up Post Office, which is open from 9.30am to 11.30am on Mondays and Wednesdays.

The redevelopment at The Market Hall in Crowle and work currently ongoing at The Angel in Brigg will complement community resources at Ashby, Riddings, Epworth, Scunthorpe and Barton.

It follows on from recent investment in the Baysgarth hub and the transformation of Scunthorpe Central library.

Cllr Rob Waltham, Leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said:

“The Market Hall can now be a central hub for Isle residents, improving quality of life and community resilience.

“Our investment in local communities will continue, so residents can access the activities and services they need on their doorsteps.”

The project forms part of a wider scheme by the council to redevelop community hubs to better meet the needs of individual communities by improving accessibility and functionality. It includes schemes already completed at the Baysgarth Hub in Barton-Upon-Humber and at Scunthorpe Central.

The recent investment in the Baysgarth hub joined library and leisure facilities while also creating new facilities including a craft room, training room, lounge, sensory room and teaching kitchen.

The Scunthorpe Central project saw the former central library transformed to bring a variety of private, public and voluntary services together under one roof.

The Market Hall in Crowle will be the next to be redeveloped as part of the community investment programme, complementing community resources at Ashby, Riddings, Epworth, Scunthorpe and Barton.
