Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Liz and on Thursday I picked up the keys to the old Salvation Army hall on Albert Street. Despite the sold sign outside the premises I am currently just renting this building.
The building will be used as a family and community education centre, offering bespoke training and tuition opportunities for all ages.
I have, along with my business partner Joley, worked in Tring for a number of years and since 2010 have run the Court Youth Theatre, offering theatre and production experiences for 5 – 19 year olds.
Joley and I also run Flametree Productions and have recently begun a partnership project with the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre looking to develop theatre for families and ensuring all the community have access to the theatre space.
I have a passionate interest in education and learning and have been developing an ideology of education for a number of years now. I am very excited to blend this with our years of experience in theatre production to develop a unique and vibrant space for people of all ages to meet, create, share and develop.
I appreciate that parking and traffic would be of a great concern to you, and can assure you that in all of our marketing material we will request that people access the building on foot and will signpost them to the various local car parks.
I am also very mindful of being in a residential street, and this was part of the charm of acquiring this building, enabling us to become a truly community based project. We will take every possible measure to ensure that you are not disrupted or inconvenienced in any way.
A large part of our ethos is communication and I will be publishing newsletters and blogging about our projects and the future plans.
Once we are all cleaned up and a bit more organised we will be holding some open afternoons / evenings where we will be able to share some more of our plans with you.
In the meantime, if you have any questions please do feel free to call me on 07946 494919 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Our new website will be albert-street.org and will be going live in the next few weeks.
Thank you in advance for your support and we look forward to meeting you soon.
Liz Raba & Joley Roberts
