Parks Estate

Blue Box Belper is a Registered Charity (no.1178483), which aims to improve the quality of life for the residents of the Parks Estate (Belper). We do this through providing and supporting a range of local activities, as well as seeking to build a new Blue Box Community Facility, which will become a hub for the local community.  We are actively fundraising and finalising plans for the new building, and are always looking for local volunteers to help further the building project and support current activities.

OUR STORY

 

Blue Box Belper became a charity in May 2018, following its initial formation by several residents as a constituted community group in 2012.

 

The aims of the original group were to build the capacity for activities for children and young people on the Parks Estate, hosted from the original Blue Box building.

 

However, since the original building’s demolition following damage, the group began to develop plans for a new Community Centre, which would serve the needs of the whole community. Blue Box now organises and actively supports a variety of community events and activities.
