Following the completion of works to repair and improve the Old School on Main St, the Addingham Hub will be established and open for business in summer 2019.
When re-opened, the Old School will again house the library on the ground floor, to be joined on the upper floor by the village archive in a new heritage centre, where the Hub will also offer a flexible public space, available free of charge for the community to use for small group meetings, activities and social get-togethers, or just for people to drop in for a cup of tea and a chat with neighbours.
The Hub can be booked by contacting the Bookings Clerk on
Plans for the new Hub were initially developed following consultation at a village event held in July 2018. See a copy of the information provided to the consultation event here:
These proposals are now being taken forward by a working group of volunteers led by the Parish Council. See below the Notes of their meetings to date and a copy of their terms of reference:
It is hoped that the Hub will be opened during early summer 2019, with a public launch event planned towards the end of June.
