Catford Mews Shortlisted for AJ Retrofit Award

Our project for the Really Local Group at Catford Mews continues to attract attention and plaudits for realising the repurposing of a former Poundland store in Catford into a cultural community hub. It has been shortlisetd for the AJ Retrofit Awards to be announced 24 February -  it is up against some strong competition but we are so pleased it has been shortlisted in recognition of the innovative approach to retrofitting three great quality screens into an unloved 1960's concrete structure, together with bar, food hall and now a venue for comedy and drama, all for a very tight budget that has allowed RLG to bring this kind of facility to a local community. Looking forward to it opening its doors once again
