On Saturday 28th May 2022 Coalville C.A.N went down to Ashby Food Festival which was situated at Ashby bath grounds in Ashby de-la-zouch. There was an amazing choice of food and drink, fresh stone baked pizza, organic beef burgers & sausages and so much more.
There was local craft ale and cider brewer, new British cocktails and wines, sourced and produced in the Midlands.
Food Gusto is passionate about supporting local and up coming musicians, this year we have Rob Lea and Mitch Colcombe who are both talented up and coming artists.
Coalville C.A.N went to Ashby food festival with the intent of showing everyone what we are doing. We also did free activities for kids.
At our HQ at Coalville C.A.N we created a gallery and we took a mobile gallery on the road for children to add their art too. We also took some writing and poetry activities for people to join in with or recite their own expressions.
Our plans for community ownership of the hermitage leisure centre, we took the scale model of Hermitage Leisure centre and the letter from the children at Castle Rock supporting the plans, We have gotten over 200 people signing including the mayor of Ashby to get this motion moving as a community.

To better combat E-Waste by stopping unused devices going to landfill, and breathing new life into old tech, our tech expert Harry has set up a digital restoration centre in the HQ.

It's a space to donate any old or unused devices, functioning or beyond repair, to be repaired or repurposed. Parts and devices will be donated to local people in need or used as part of community projects.

Find out more or get in touch to arrange a donation on the official Facebook page:

Collaborating with Camerados, we've set up a public living room on the ground floor of HQ. They describe it best on their website:

'A no agenda space, where folk can go to just be themselves alongside others, they are warm welcoming places that offer no services just the company of fellow humans. Public Living Rooms are not manned by staff, they are set up and organised by folk in communities for those communities and are open to all.'

You can hang out in the living room whenever we are open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, but keep an eye for dedicated living room events in our announcements!
