What’s happening at the hub

In keeping with the busy bee theme come and join us for the second year at One Planet Norwich Festival 8 June. It’s completely
free and we have two workshops this year: bee box making and t-shirt/bag stencilling alongside selling other hand-made bee and planet friendly items such as our ever-popular beeswax wraps.
Every purchase keeps our wonderful, vibrant Hub open and by keeping our doors open we are quite literally saving lives for people and planet. www.facebook.com/oneplanetnorwich

That’s not all… Saturday 22 June we’re delighted to announce the Hub is open for the first Bowthorpe Arts and Crafts Festival.
Two of our groups have entered the community tree trail and from 10.30am until 3pm pop in for a cuppa and homemade cake thanks to our fabulous Army Chef, take some time out to explore Dingley Dell and see what we have on offer during the week.
