CUPPAS were raised at the launch of Lighthorne Heath’s permanent warm hub.
Thanks to a cost of living grant from Warwickshire County Council and ongoing support from rural charity WRCC, the hub will now be running all year round and has become the newest member of WRCC’s community warm hubs network in Warwickshire.
All locals are welcome to come along to the weekly event, which runs from 11am to 2pm every Tuesday at the village hall.
WRCC Warm Hubs are safe, friendly and welcoming places where people can meet up with others, enjoy refreshments and get access to energy saving and home safety advice, as well as signposting to community support services.
And the team behind the hub is planning lots more to do this summer including slow cooking sessions, day trips out and the chance to grow your own veg.
Yvonne Liddell, warm hub organiser, said: “We’re delighted that this fantastic event will now be running all year round, and if you haven’t visited us yet, just drop in any Tuesday to find out more. The more the merrier – and if you’d like to get involved as a volunteer and help us to help our community, we’d love to hear from you too.”
Jackie Holcroft, WRCC warm hubs manager, added, “Congratulations to Yvonne and all the team for getting this great event up and running so well. We’re excited to welcome Lighthorne Heath to our network of warm hubs and look forward to working with them for a very long time to come.”
