This building, known as The Community House, is part of The Echoes housing development in Grays. The Community House is a local initiative that has been instrumental in engendering greater community spirit on the estate and reducing crime and anti-social behaviour. Prior to the housing development being undertaken The Community House occupied several portakabins on the dilapidated garage site.
The new Community House provides a café/community space and a function space that will enable local people to host a wide range of activities. A large window on the first floor acts as a shop window for the community, allowing them to demonstrate the range of activities that they undertake.
