Last week @ the Hub
If I had been asked the question a couple of years ago about what the future held like most people I would not have been able to answer. That was a time of great uncertainty just after the Covid lockdown and lI had little idea what lay ahead.
So, when I made an innocent enquiry after a meeting about the provision of a vacant shop for the community, little did I know what that action would lead to.
Two years later, and not only has that empty shop transformed into a wonderful busy community Hub, but it has also facilitated a huge community movement for the regeneration of our town centre which involves a cross section of business and community members.
Happy days xx

April 10th - 14th
Still away in the sun............
On our way home from the sun to arrival back in UK greeted by rain, high winds and a chill factor of xxxx
First day back after the long Easter Weekend where the Hub was closed and four days last week out of contact sunning myself and trying to chill out without taking a peek at emails or social media - failed in that aim but non the less seemed to spend less time than usual thinking about where we are heading both locally and as a country.
To get back into the swing of things at the Hub I was lucky enough to have the first hour as a catch-up time with Donna enthralled by all that had been done in my absence - and then the buzz began.
Fantastic work and attendance at both the Wiltshire Sight session and the new Healthy Wiltshire group meeting which meant that there was little air space left for all the people who seemed to decide that Wednesday morning is the idea time to pop in for a chat, coffee, advice, help and even just a sprinkle of kindness....now this really is the Hub at its best.
While I was away we were lucky enough to learn that we have been included in the new Wessex Water Community Connector project - an innovative programme which will see us expand our help in the area of supporting people who are experiencing cost of living pressures. It is a really exciting project that fits well with all we do but will require the best of us, so with that in mind I have another early morning session booked with Donna while trustee, Ian and a couple of volunteers are busy with the Seniors Friendship Group.
It really is great to be home..........
