We've been talking to the nice people at Spacehive who facilitate crowd funding for local projects, and we'd like to see if we can get a few things done in your area. The idea is that our lovely Haringey MNers come up with ideas for things in our community we'd like to see spruced up, made over and totally regenerated: crumbling scout huts, abandoned toilet blocks, empty shops (check out this page [http://spacehive.com/ProjectSearch] to get an idea of what projects others have suggested, and check out their [http://spacehive.com/Home/HowItWorks] FAQs to get an idea of the process). You'll need to think about not just what you'd like to see spruced up, but what you'd like to see it turned into.

Spacehive has lots of tools and experts to help cost projects and check feasibility. Then, once we've got a few solid ideas, Spacehive (and Mumsnet - and Mumsnetters!) will promote the projects and - with a bit of luck - between us we can get the money raised to turn your ideas into actual funded projects.

Don't worry, you're not being asked to be architect, project manager or builder: at this stage we're really just interested in finding some good ideas.

We're going to have our very own Mumsnet page on Spacehive to showcase our projects, so if you have an idea, please post it on this thread and we'll take it from there.

I am so glad I saw this today. I have an idea but I am not sure if it fits your criteria.

BURGHLEY ROAD UNDER 5s CHILDRENS CENTRE.

This a local volunteer run charity. It is in danger of closing if we dont get numbers up, a new committee and new funding. It is in need of a major spruce up. The garden needs planting, painting, the signs, the whole building in many way needs a re vamp and I think if we could spruce up the place....well numbers would increase and it would give it a new life and continue to serve the local families.

Please can you give me a contact person or email at spacehive to discuss this with asap?
Many thanks.
