Warwickshire Warm Hubs network holds first workshop event

Leamington Editorial 21st Sep, 2023   0

MORE than 120 people turned out for the first ever Warm Hubs Workshop.

The gathering, on Wednesday September 13, was to celebrate the work of the WRCC community hubs across Warwickshire as well as to make connections, share experiences and learn.

The warm hubs were set up by rural charity WRCC and gas distribution network Cadent three years ago, giving residents a warm and safe place to go to socialise, as well as seek help and advice.

There are now warm hubs in villages and towns including Bidford, Kenilworth, Salford Priors and Wellesbourne.

At the workshop there were a range of activities and entertainment including a seated exercise taster session from Think Active, while Salford Priors even announced the launch of its Short Mat Bowls Warwickshire Inter-Hub Competition.

Representatives from Citizens Advice, National Energy Action, Warwickshire Healthwatch and Fire and Rescue Services were also there.

WRCC warm hubs manager Jackie Holcroft said: “We’re delighted to welcome so many people from so many organisations to our event today. This shows the strength of support and need for warm hubs and how our network supports community development across Warwickshire and Solihull.

“It’s been incredible to watch people making new connections and expanding their hubs’ community networks throughout the day, and we only wish we could bottle the energy created at this event.”
