2.4.T. Cafe was set up following demand from our customers, who wanted a more cafe style area to take their breaks in, somewhere where they could order from a menu, and be served by waiters and waitresses This also presented a training opportunity with 9 of our customers currently undergoing training in basic food hygiene, cash handling skills, operating a till and customer service training, along with some basic food preparation skills. This is ongoing training with new customers taking up the training as people progress through the programme.

Currently 1 in7 canned drinks are consumed within the workplace, the vast majority of the empty cans end up in landfill sites. We want this to stop, so we created cobwebs recycling.

Between July 2008 and July 2009 we have manually sorted 500,000 aluminium drink cans, and 70,000 steel cans, enough to fill 8 double decked busses with cans. :

Community Inclusion Training : 

Community Inclusion Training Community Inclusion Training, is a twelve week training course designed to empower our customers to be included in community activities & events by utilising local community transport services. Prior to any actual travel subscribers to the course undergo training on reading and number recognition skill, as well as how to read a timetable, additionally local maps and bus routes are studied. Training progresses onto accessing local busses, initially supported by staff, until eventually over a period of weeks and following rigorous assessments, staff support is withdrawn and the customer starts to travel independently.

Eskdale Community Allotment : 

Eskdale Community Allotment Cobwebs was recently donated one of the Allotment Plots in Eskdale Road by Corby Forest School Allotments Project, which is part of the Eden Project to restore community spirit. Over recent weeks teams have been visiting the site clearing ground, and building raised accessible planting beds, readying the site for coming growing seasons. We have also been donated a small shed to be erected on the site which will be used to store small items and offer shelter to volunteers during inclement weather. Cobwebs intend to grow vegetables, fruit and tomatoes to be used within the units 2.4.T cafe. Click for Rainbows Leaflet delivery

Rainbows Leaflet Delivery : 

Rainbows Leaflet Delivery Rainbows is a hospice for children with terminal illness, due to ever increasing running costs Rainbows has had to embark on a major fundraising campaign. Rainbows has designed a leaflet detailing its fundraising activities giving members of the public information on how to support the project. This fundraising drive was launched nationwide, but the project had no volunteers to cover the Corby area. Cobwebs was made aware of the plight of rainbows and a small group of volunteers soon stepped forward to step up to the challenge of supporting this project. Service users underwent travel training to facilitate them in the task of delivery leaflets within their local community, to date they have delivered in excess of 2,500 leaflets. The group of volunteers working on this project consists of 7 from Oakley Hay and 3 from Oakley grange.
