A new hub facility for the community at Sele Farm has been opened in Fleming Crescent by Network Homes
Based in a former betting shop, the site has been transformed into a facility offering a resource for organisations and individuals working to transform one of the most deprived areas in Hertfordshire.
The Hub will provide advice and consultation space, as well as being available to community organisations to hire for free.
Helen Evans, Network Homes Chief Executive, did the honours of cutting the ribbon marking the launch of the hub at a special ceremony on Tuesday 19th October, involving guests from East Herts Council and local organisations.
Helen said: "The new community hub is all part of a successful partnership where we’re working with East Herts Council and partner agencies to support the sustainable growth and regeneration of Sele Farm. I’m certain it will be a valuable resource for the community for many years to come."
Cllr Peter Boylan, Executive Member for Neighbourhoods at East Herts Council, commented: "We're committed to investing in our communities and creating places where residents come together, and neighbourhood life thrives. Spaces like this one are so important to involving residents in shaping the future of where they live, as well as providing better access to local advice and support services. We look forward to continuing our work with Network Homes to transform Sele Farm for the benefit of all our communities."
