Our Story

We are a registered charity – formed by members of local groups The Archibald Corbett Society and Corbett Residents Association.  The charity was formed to save Torridon Library when Lewisham Council announced that, due to budget cuts, it could no longer keep the Library open.

We opened our doors in October 2016 and between then and May 2019 everything we provided was entirely staffed by volunteers.  In June 2019 we gained Lottery funding to hire two Development Managers who now oversee the day to day running of the library and look at ways to develop income streams so that we can keep our wonderful library and community centre open in the future. Involving the community in everything we do is central to our mission – as such, many of our volunteers are now trustees and board members.
