What’s On at The Hub

Grow activities focus on services offered from the Hub with members of the local community welcomed almost every day of the working week.

Weekly sessions:

  • Monday and Wednesday sees our Growing Strong Together gardening project from 10am – 4.30pm. Here you will work as part of a small and well supported team learning and refreshing practical skills such as gardening and carpentry 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 and handymen/women or those with an interest 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 4B’s Veterans Drop-In is run by veterans for all members of the Armed Forces, Blue Light Services, Veterans and families of both plus 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 the bacon, brew, baking (of his legendary cakes) and plenty of banter!

Also – If you haven’t tried acupuncture and are struggling with aches and pains our wonderful HubAngels might just have the answer. Free treatments are available to all in the above group with donations requested from others. All monies 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.

Do pop in, follow us on social media or visit our website. 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 £1.50 is requested towards tea, coffee, biscuits and the Tai Chi sessions cost £5 per person. There is no need to book, just turn up, join in and feel the benefits.
