Caistor Arts & Heritage Centre is a 'Not for Profit' social enterprise created by £430,000 of funding from Big Lottery as one of 6 selected projects under the Village SOS programme and opened on 11th April 2011.The build and fit-out of the centre was featured in a BBC documentary hosted by Sarah Beaney. We provide facilities for local people and visitors to the area which include a public library, local heritage displays, exhibition gallery, computer access, training & meeting rooms, a cafe and a small retail area for local crafts people.
The library is run by volunteers and holds regular reader development activities such as story time, children's craft sessions, world book day, themed reading events, reading groups and a summer reading challenge,.
Volunteers care for a growing collection of local artefacts going back to the area's Roman history. They take part in research projects, family history workshops, local history walks and memories sessions for our older people.
The cafe is manned by volunteers and serves breakfast, lunch and daytime snacks.
Our meeting room is used for many different purposes including local group meetings, art exhibitions, talks and quiet study area.
