Wisbech Hub adding more activities all the time
Here's the monthly Culture Focus (Hidden Gems) column by Lorena Hodgson of Red Barn Creative...
The Community Hub is taking up much of my volunteering time at the moment, hence moving this column to once a month. I’m still as keen as ever to make sure you hear about a selection of projects going on in Wisbech.
The Hub itself is adding to its activities.We now have a Tuesday Crafternoon and a Wednesday Repair Cafe.
If you have something that is broken and you’d like to try and fix it, come along and see if we can help. We’re having a meeting about it on April 6 for everyone who is curious about the idea, including those who would also like to become repairers.
See repaircafe.org for details of this international movement and go to RepairCafeWisbech.org.uk for more on ours.
The Tuesday Crafternoon is a relaxed gathering of people who enjoy making – sewing, crochet, weaving; bring your own or join in with a community piece. It’s “pay what you can”, any and all donations appreciated. Join us at 1pm, stay for a few minutes or an hour, it’s up to you, everyone welcome.
This Friday, April 1, there is an opportunity to find out what help there is for the older generation. The Fenland Golden Age Fair is in Gorefield, Wolf Lane, PE13 4NE, running from 11am to 2pm.
Free drinks and biscuits along with free advice from around 20 organisations. Worth a trip to check you’re receiving all the support you are entitled too as well as find out what you can be doing now to help yourself at home in later life.
Running the Hub means I find out about all the new events as we look after the community noticeboard at the Post Office Lane entrance.
We have notices about a special event to see the Bayeaux Tapestry that is being re-created in Wisbech, at St Peter’s Church Hall, 2.30pm, April 12, book via email email@example.com
There’s also notices on a group for non-English speakers to improve their English; music events, talks, craft fairs and more. If you run a not-for-profit group and want to share your events, please come and ask and we’ll do what we can to help you get the word out. I’ve started the hashtag #ConnectingWisbech on social media, so please follow and share, too.
