What’s On at The Hub

We operate a prevention and recovery peer support model, welcoming individuals who feel ready to progress and are able to work both independently and as part of a group. We do not provide welfare services in-house but will signpost to relevant partner agencies.  Please note our service is not for crisis or emergency situations.  If you feel you are in crisis, experiencing feelings of despair or are suicidal, dial 999, contact the Samaritans on 116 123 or call your GP.

Weekly sessions:

  • Monday and Wednesday gardening and nature crafts from 10am – 3.30pm. Here you will work as part of a small and well supported team learning and refreshing practical skills such as gardening and woodwork to focus the mind, body and soul.

Sessions are friendly and open to all who seek a safe and nurturing space in which to get outdoors, improve levels of physical activity and form new friendships. Reconnect your senses, try new skills, stay for an hour or the whole day. Volunteer gardeners, handymen/women, retireees or those with an interest in sharing skills most welcome! For more information pop in to the Hub, call 01603 740107 or email: hub@thegroworganisation.org

  • Every Thursday 10.00 until 13.30 our Grow Hub Services Drop-In is run by veterans for all serving members of the Armed Forces, Blue Light Services, Veterans and families to include friendly hounds. If you’d like to meet up with likeminded individuals pop along and see our resident ex-Army Chef in full flow with bacon, brew, baking (of his legendary cakes) and plenty of banter!

If you haven’t tried acupuncture and are struggling with aches and pains our wonderful HubAngel might just have the answer. Free treatments are available to all in the above group with donations taken from others. All funds raised go towards keeping this vital group and the Hub open.

Parking is very limited on site but there is free all day parking at Roy’s shopping centre – take the entrance at the bottom by the mini roundabout.

Drop-in – there’s lots going on and we don’t bite (unless you’re made of cake…)

  • At the end of the week we see The Friday Social from 10am until 12 noon. Come and join us for a friendly get together. Activities include arts, crafts, table-top games, poems, storytelling, indoor bowls, knitting, and regular monthly Tai Chi sessions for people of all ages and abilities. Keep an eye out for specific dates in the Bowthorpe News and on our Facebook and Twitter feeds.

A donation of £2 00 is taken towards tea, coffee and biscuits, The Tai Chi sessions cost £5 per person. There is no need to book, just turn up, join in and feel the benefits.
