On-going expansion work underway

Caldmore Community House has received funding from Walsall Council to expand its building as part of the Community Capital scheme. 

Delivered by the Community Capital programme and funded through the Walsall and Bloxwich Town Deal, this expansion will provide much-needed additional space for the centre to run activities and services. ​ 

Caldmore Community House, a project of the Caldmore Village Festival, is a vibrant hub which offers local residents opportunities in training, development, free spaces to work and play in the community garden. 

The Caldmore garden is also used by local primary schools including Caldmore Village Primary School and Whitehall Junior school to learn about growing food. 

The planned expansion will focus on the downstairs area of Caldmore Community House, providing a modern kitchen area, more sitting areas, storage space, a fire exit, as well as a kitchen and café. 

“ We are delighted to support the expansion of Caldmore Community House. As a council, we are committed to the growth and development of various projects to benefit our residents and make their lives easier.

Caldmore Community House is essential for the community and this funding will help them to provide even more services for local people. I cannot wait to see what the community house will look like when the project is completed. “

Councillor Adrian Andrew, Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Regeneration
Walsall Council

“ We are very excited about receiving the Community Capital funding for Caldmore Community House downstairs space and kitchen extension.

The funding will enable us to grow our offer of community activities, training courses, creative workshops, and to deliver them for the benefit of the local community. The larger space will be used as a community café at events, a training venue for Caldmore Community Garden volunteers and wider community members, and as a meeting space for our regular sessions including Men’s Shed, Women’s Tuesdays, Caldmore Tots, and Garden Saturdays. “

Mohammed Arif, Chairperson of the Caldmore Community House

Once building works are finished, there will be a provision to run training courses for volunteers and community members, cooking groups and social activities which will give local people new skills and create opportunities for social interaction across cultures.

The Community Capital programme, funded through the Walsall and Bloxwich Town Deal, accepts applications from community groups and services looking for funding to upgrade buildings and expand their offer. Projects in receipt of funding have until 31 March 2026 to complete their improvements.
