Transforming Cheltenham West
In 2015, local residents from the Hesters Way area of Cheltenham started a not-for-profit social enterprise, with the ambitious plan to help transform our community by encouraging creative enterprise.
Work With Us
We have a wide variety of roles suitable for volunteers looking to develop skills and employment opportunities. We are also keen to work with anyone wanting to pursue new projects and business ventures, particularly those that will benefit the local Cheltenham West community.
Please get in touch to discuss opportunities.
Coronation Square Regeneration
In 2016, we converted a formerly disused retail unit on the Coronation Square shopping centre into a multi-functional space, Create on the Square.
Our aim was to use the space as a base for our activities and to support the ongoing regeneration of Coronation Square.
Escape Rooms Cheltenham
One of our most successful experiments has been Escape Rooms Cheltenham, which provides fun escape room challenges from Create on the Square. Participants are locked in a room and have to solve a variety of puzzles in order to escape within the allocated one hour deadline.
Encouraging Creative Enterprise
Create on the Square is a catalyst for positive change in Cheltenham West.
We Champion local assets, people's talents and other resources, in order to stir up new ideas.
We help Refine these ideas into short Experiment projects that prove whether the ideas are viable enough. Once a project is running we Adapt the plans regularly, to ensure it is effective and then Test whether the experiment has been successful. If necessary we run new experiments on the same idea, or otherwise persevere and Expand the idea to make it more successful.
