A community hub has opened in a Ledbury cafe.

The hub, which will run community events and meetups, is based at Pot & Page in New Street.

It is now looking to start working with other local charities and services to offer free support.

The idea behind the hub is to offer a safe space to help strengthen community ties and forge connections for all residents of Ledbury and the surrounding areas, with the belief that everyone is healthier and happier as a member of a strong community.

Three regular meetups are currently being run at the hub - a book club, a games night and a poetry evening.

There are also communal ‘pay what you can’ meals taking place, as well as fundraisers and community events.

Longer term, the hub wants to offer flexible working spaces, private meeting spaces and training opportunities for those out of work.

This Sunday (October 8) volunteers will be gathering at the hub to prepare apples from local orchards for the Ledbury Food Bank.

There’s a Kids’ Kitchen cooking class on Monday (October 9) and a medieval witchcraft fundraiser event later on in the month.

The venue is also now available for local community groups to host their own meet-ups.

On Thursday, October 12 at 6pm, the Ledbury Community Hub is opening its doors for the evening, welcoming local residents, services, charities and community groups to come and have their say on how they think it can help them bring local residents together, including those who may be the most isolated.

The evening is a chance to find out what the Ledbury Community Hub project is about, talk to the founder and trustees, and have your voice heard.

Drinks and nibbles are provided.
