Eco Hub Gets a boost

Community Supporters has recently received news that we’re being supported by the National Lottery Community Fund to ensure the Eco Hub remains open and can offer a full range of activities for a full 12 month period.
This news means our lease is secure until the 30th April 2024.
Throughout this time we will be holding a wide range of activities within the hub as well as continuing to offer a range of sustainable products such as reusable tea bags, compostable sponges, our very popular shampoo bars, and more. Our regular sessions such as knit and natter, repair cafe, and Young Pollinators will also continue, but we’ll also be able to offer more single session workshops such as bird box making, screenprinting, and soon we’ll be arranging a solar panel making workshop. Watch this space!!!

We’d also love to hear your thoughts and suggestions for activities, so please get in touch via the contact us page, or simply pop into the hub in Bexhill to say hello.

Eco/Acticity Hub

On the 10th of September 2022 we opened the first of hopefully several Eco Hubs across the Rother District.

This is a relaxed community space where people are welcome to pop in for a chat or a space to create. We are open to all ages and abilities and offer a wide range of environmentally focused activities to try including, textile repurposing, making solar powered wooden toys, paper making, plastic bottle recycling, sewing, woodwork, and much more.

The hub has group sessions including a repair cafe, knitting groups, craft workshops, demonstrations, Young Pollinators, and a health hub. We also offer low cost room hire for groups wanting workshop space.

For a full break down of workshops each month please visit our Events or Facebook page.

Women’s Group

The Women’s Group is a peer support group for women suffering feelings of loneliness, anxiety, depression, or simply want to meet new people and try new activities.
The group meet on either Monday’s or Saturday’s each week at various locations in the Bexhill area. Activities are designed to encourage positive mental health in a natural environment. Being in a green space is well known to increase mental health and and general feeling of wellbeing.
The group is free to attend and even offers opportunities for individuals to boost skills and their CV through optional formal training. So far a selection of participants have completed forest school accreditation, food hygiene training, first aid, and more.

Nature Inspired

Nature Inspired is a programme of art or creative activities and learning which helps individuals connect with nature, meet like minded people, and find a greater sense of wellbeing.
Activities include watercolour workshops, wreath making, recycling old items into new, exploring colour, and much more.
These sessions have been made possible from a grant from Local Giving and the Magic Little Grants.
