New community hub set to open on Marshall Avenue following Lottery award
A new community hub is set to open in Bridlington following an award from The National Lottery Community Fund.
East Riding Voluntary Action Services (ERVAS) has been awarded funding to support its work at the hub which will be based on Marshall Avenue.
The hub will provide a wide range of services and spaces for individuals, groups, clubs, charities, businesses.
In addition to these facilities, the ERVAS community-led local development team – Devan Witter, Fiona Turner and Nicola Knaggs – and centre co-ordinator Sarah Hartley, will also be based within the hub.
Sarah said: “We will be based on the first floor of the new Bridlington Town Council building at 2A Marshall Avenue and are hoping that it will be completely open to the public very soon.
“Along with other service providers, we are anxious to operate our services from the Bridlington Hub as soon as restrictions allow.
“With four private office/counselling rooms, four hot desking and collaborative working opportunities, and a large room suitable for meetings and activities, along with kitchen facilities, the space will provide a wide range of opportunities to any individuals, groups, clubs, charities, business or other support offering.
“The hub will have other services available to help with issues such as homelessness, armed forces support, crime prevention, food poverty and social deprivation.
“We look forward to welcoming more services as we develop the facility.
“There will be a reception area staffed by volunteers, and the hub is accessible to all, providing a one-stop shop for information, advice and guidance service across all sectors.
“We will be consulting further with the community on a regular basis and look forward to increasing our networks and presence in the Bridlington area.”
