Our new state-of-the-art Eco Hub is on course for a New Year launch.
But weeks before it starts to deliver support services to local residents, delegates attending this year’s Locality Convention enjoyed a guided tour of the much-touted facility.
More than £1-million has been invested to transform the Park Keeper’s Cottage at Witton Lakes, which has stood there for over 100 years.
Activities delivered from the Hub are set to include a range of workshops and practical learning around the environment, ecology and sustainability. There will also be a dedicated push to work with the local community to tackle issues like fuel and food poverty.
Afzal Hussain, Chief Officer at Witton Lodge, said local residents will play a leading role in shaping and delivering services. “There is a climate emergency and as well as action being needed at internationally we need grass roots action that will protect our planet and deal with the pressing issues facing many of our residents, such as food and fuel poverty.”
