A Grade II listed building in Batley, West Yorkshire which has stood vacant for 5 years has undergone a £25k investment by its tenant, The Crescent Care, to provide the community with an events hub.
Since acquiring the lease of the Victorian property opposite Batley train station, known as The Crescent in December 2017, Paula Chamberlain, MD and founder of The Crescent Care has facilitated a radical transformation, restoring the building to its former glory to accommodate meetings, training sessions, conferences and social gatherings.
Alongside their core activity of looking after a complex range of care needs for children and adults across the Yorkshire region, The Crescent were keen that the building becomes a key part of the community.
Already they have hosted a number of events including charity fundraisers, business networking and are hoping to put on regular events which including yoga for the elderly.
Paula Chamberlain, MD and Founder said: “It is a pleasure to open our doors to the local community. As well as enabling local groups to utilise the space for coffee mornings, workshops, wellbeing and community needs, we have also seen the wider potential for bigger events at the venue.
“We are extremely proud of what has been created at The Crescent and with such a unique offering, we can offer second to none hospitality. By using The Crescent for meetings and events, you will be in turn helping our social enterprise to address isolation and loneliness.”
Offering competitive daily delegate rates and room hire by the hour, half or full day, The Crescent can cover business requirements as well as social gatherings for up to 60 people. All three rooms, The Front Room, The Library and The Dining room are individually designed with a luxurious feel.
