Future Wolverton's current project is to rescue and refurbish the Old School, a Grade 2 listed building located in the heart of Old Wolverton. In the past the building has been a community hall but it has unfortunately been out of use for the last 10 years, leading to gradual deterioration to the fabric of the building, and giving the surrounding area a feeling of decline.
Following a four year campaign Future Wolverton secured funding to buy the property in April 2017. With the help of this share raise, Future Wolverton hope to develop the Old School to provide a focal point for the Old Wolverton community, giving long established residents a place to meet up and socialise and new residents somewhere to find out about the area and participate in community activities. The project will also preserve the heritage of the area, telling the story of Wolverton’s agricultural past, and provide an educational context for the students of Slade Row school - a local community special school.
