Who are we ?
Go Geronimo is a community interest company that is based at a garden nursery’s site which we are slowly developing in Lound between Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft in the East of England.
We are a community company made up from a board of 5 directors, an adults and children’s delivery team and a bank of volunteers who all work together to deliver high quality innovative services.
We were brought together because of cuts to local services which we were professionally involved in and we saw an opportunity to use our skills to meet a need and the potential to develop out-reach and community services from our nursery site for the good of the local community.
For the past year we have all worked as volunteers getting some pilot activities set up and market testing the demand in the community.
