Here is the latest newsletter about the Norton Community Hub:-

Norton Community Trust

Newsletter No 26 May  2024

Thank you to everyone who supported our Open Day last month – what a great turn-out.  And we’ve been overwhelmed by all the suggestions for Hub activities.  We’ve already started going through these and hope to bring the first ones to fruition soon, including a book club, craft sessions, mums and tots club, and keep fit/yoga.  Of course we’re relying on you the residents to support and help run these sorts of things, so please get in touch if you would be interested in attending and/or helping with any of these.

Since the Open Day the long-awaited connection of the foul water services and the restoration of the path are now complete, and the final Building Control inspection has taken place.  We’re so delighted Hub activities can now commence!

The first of these events is our Table Sale on Bank Holiday Monday 6th May, 10am to 4pm.  Please do come along and support this fundraiser.  There will be plants, cakes, crafts, jams, some great quality “new to you” items, as well as a top quality raffle and refreshments – and entry is FREE!

Over the summer and autumn we have a wide variety of special events being planned – details about these are on our website  We will also be getting a regular coffee morning and lunch club going and possibly some “pub evenings”.  We’d really like to have a special place at these for some memorabilia which focus on Norton and particularly the former church building which holds special memories for many residents.  We’re considering a display and perhaps a “memory box”.  If you have any material – photos, postcards, memoirs, items, etc etc – that you’d be willing to share (or lend so we can copy) please do get in touch and we can discuss how best we could use them. 

Please do consider the Hub for your private parties, meetings and activities, and also spread the word further afield.  Details of facilities and charges are all on the website.

Now that the Hub is really up and running, we would love to welcome some new volunteers – the type of help needed really is unlimited.  Our volunteer co-ordinator is Dave Rowing and he’d love to hear from you –
