2018 - 2020

Crossways Community Space

Between 2017 and 2020 the owners of Crossways House at 1 Longstanton Road made the two downstairs front rooms of their house available for the Community to be used, as a Cafe  (the 'Communitea Cafe') and community hub. During that time it was used for meetings and volunteer led activities to include exhibitions, toddlers' essions, a chess café, board game nights, bring-and-share meals, puzzle afternoons, a philosophers' cafe, a book club, open drop-in café sessions and more. In an age of much  social isolation and loneliness Crossways provided a homely and cheerful space where everyone was welcome. 

Following the space's closure in March 2020 due to Covid restrictions and uncertainties about its future viability, it was decided to close the project as a community hub but potentially move some of its activities to other venues.  

 

The Crossways Team expresses its gratitude to the owners of Crossways House for allowing them to use the rooms for these years and for their overall support to the community.
