Aspire Centre

In the grounds of Moulsham Mill, the Aspire Centre is the base for many of InterAct’s activities for children & young people in Chelmsford

Over the past ten years, InterAct has been developing the Aspire Centre, a 19th century Grade II* listed cottage and its gardens, on the Moulsham Mill site in Central Chelmsford. This has become the base for many of our weeknight and holiday-time activities for children and young people.

The work undertaken has included revamping and equipping the facilities indoors, and a complete transformation of the gardens and grounds which surround it - a great achievement!


This was all made possible with generous financial support, donations of materials, and a huge volunteer effort - a brilliant combination of:

  • local government & charitable grants
  • garden design & manpower from Writtle College students
  • practical, material & financial support from many local businesses, community groups & NCS volunteers
  • years of garden care and maintenance by InterAct’s Garden Club volunteers
