Crawford House has a rich history, serving the community in many ways, initially housing soldiers acting as a military barracks, post war the building  took on a new life and was then utilised and became the Local Fire station, After the building was left vacant it was redeveloped and converted to be used as a Multi Use facility housing, shops, office space, social areas, cafe and a learning centre for the benefit of the local community, 2020  has seen us celebrate our 25th Year and we now look to the future, and wish to continue to offer support for many more years to come
