    Surely they'll notice the sudden cessation of the constant hoity-toity partying, rowdy aristo dinner clubs and 24hr noise pollution?

    They certainly won't miss any community events seeing as Brick Box offered none, but at least you won't have to step past any more of those phantom notice boards.

    So, how are you liking how they've left the pub looking for locals? Looking good to your eyes?

    It's already been sold to property developers who will be turning it into flats. Brick Box were just there to soften up the place ready for the big sale.

    Are the planning permissions in place Ed?

    Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere.

    The plans are in place for the 'vibrant' location.

    Wasn't he just wheeled in for the funding-boosting, grant-bagging photo op?

    I cant remember now. I thought he was giving him cash.

    here's their take on it anyway.

    They certainly know how to talk the funding talk. In reality, the place was closed up and shuttered 95% of the time. Probably more, in fact.

    Aren't social enterprises supposed to make money (to further their ends) rather than just use up grants?

    To some extent; there should be a set agreed surplus amount in their operating documents that doesn't need to be reinvested into furthering the aim of the organisation. SE's aren't the answer to every problem and aren't always going to be financially self sustaining.

    Where would someone go to report this?

    Report them for what? Other than being woefully inept at community engagement, they're doing what the law allows them to do, which is blend grants and profit making activity.

    Still. Someone might want to investigate :)

    Well their reputation will probably precede them! This thread is page two on a google search of "Brick Box Brixton".

    It think it might be awfully nice if Brick Box took the trouble to clear up the mess they left behind.

    butbutbut their creative energies need healing in a new place where they can inspire and 'involve' the local community there to be artistic and evoke the streets they tread.
    how cruel of you to suggest they abandon their new hope and return to a finsished project who's funding has run out
    new pots need to plunged for the sake of fun frivolity and of course ART!
