ReSpace has been supporting and advising the crew of the Bitter End pub in Romford in their transition to become a ReSpace project. The guys there have done a fantastic job in holding together this fine old building in the heart of Romford town centre. Once a thriving venue, this listed building is in a state of disrepair and the crew hope to persuade the owner to let them turn it into a music and arts workshop with a live venue.
They recently had reknowned photo-journalist Ed Gold of the BBC stay with them to compile a piece about their alternative approach to living and working.
His piece on the Bitter End ihas been published by the BBC and he has compiled a magazine of the people of that project that is a real work of art. We are so proud to be involved and hope to help them negotiate a long and useful project!
