The Frankie Howerd Community Hub

Situated in a village just a couple of miles down the lane from Frankie’s house, the Hub will provide much needed services to the surrounding villages which have no shops, pubs or bus service.

The Community Hub project is gathering momentum.

An Advisory Committee has been formed and its members include a local solicitor, an accountant, social worker, professional fund raiser, the vicar and retired teachers, all of
whom bring useful skills and experience to the project.

A fund-raising group has also started with a brief to engage with local businesses, create a foundation members’ group and improve social media links.

If you would like to help the development of the hub and have expertise that could be helpful then please contact us.

A significant and very positive development has been the creation of a partnership between ourselves and The Wessex Learning Trust which educates more than 2600 students in our community. We have a shared philosophy with a mutual goal of strengthening our community from youth through to old age.

The Trust is delighted to announce the award of a £20,000 grant from the National Grid towards the development of the hub which has enabled work on Phase 1 to be started. And recently, the Trust has been very fortunate in being awarded £34,000 from the Enovert Community Trust to allow us almost to complete Phase 1. Furthermore, we have received donations from several people who are eager to help us.
