Open Day at Ashby Community Hub

16:15, Thursday, 2nd September 2021

Ashby Community Hub is having an Open Day on Friday 3 September between 9am and 3pm for people to find out what the hub offers and get involved in a range of activities.

Back in March, the hub opened its doors following a £5m transformation to provide residents with convenient access to information, advice and support in the heart of the community.  Residents can also participate in activities to improve their health and wellbeing.

Open to everyone, the hub spaces are a central point in the community with support and activities for all; young and old.

At the Open Day there will be advice available to carers from the Carers Support Service and Family Carer team.

Healthy Lifestyles will be on hand with weight management and smoking cessation advice, as well as providing cooking activities.

There will also be:

  • Wellbeing activities
  • Information and advice on Adult Education and Community Learning courses
  • A display linked to the Luke Jerram poetry event, Of Earth and Sky
  • Employment advice and support from the Action Station
  • Details on Reading Well – books to help your wellbeing

Visitors to the hub will be able to look round the children’s library, which aims to help foster a lifelong love of reading for pleasure. Using the theme ‘bringing the outside in’, the centrepiece of the new library is a wonderful tree for displaying books, toys and other imaginative items that help bring the world of books to life.
