A NEW family hobby centre is to open on Upper Castle Street in Hinckley town centre, inside of the unit which once played home to the former Emmaus charity shop.

Today (11 February), new vinyl poster signs were spotted in the side windows of the space, showing that a new group named Model Craft Create (MCC), are taking on the site.

They were quick to install signage, though, as the previous Emmaus signage has not yet been taken down.

It will give families and visitors the chance to learn a new skill, create their own ‘masterpieces’ and start a collection – and the gifts inside will be suitable all ages.

The storefront posters confirm that the group are to open their doors this Easter.

The recruitment process is now underway, and those interested in applying for jobs are being encouraged to apply by emailing

They are hiring on both part-time and full-time vacancies – and the group are after team members who are ‘enthusiastic, energetic, outgoing, adaptable, and passionate’.

A spokesperson for MCC has been approached by the Hinckley Free Press, but they were unavailable to comment at the time of publication (Friday, 11 February).
