Great Stay!

Posted in News

Year 3 and 4 students from Fourlanesend Primary School had a lovely stay at The Hub, visiting the attractions in the town!  This is what one of the students wrote about their visit:

Week beginning 18th April 2016
On Monday morning, we set off for Lyme Regis and our one-night residential. We arrived at the Hub and had lunch before walking to the Town Mill. Here, we met Phil and Irena (artists) and one of the millers – they made our visit really interesting and we even brought home freshly milled flour and a beautiful card. When we returned to the Hub, we laid out our roll mats and sleeping bags ready for the night.
Then we walked to the beach to eat our chips – we had to fight off the pesky seagulls although one of them did manage to pinch some of Kanye’s tea! It made us all giggle. After some play time on the beach, we returned to get ready for bed – some of us fell asleep as soon as our heads hit the pillow and some of us took a little longer!
The next morning, after breakfast, we met Chris who was our fossil guide. We had an amazing day on the beach learning about the different types of fossils and then hunting for our own. All of the adults that went with us were really impressed with our use of school values when on our trip. We would love to go back again soon!

Coffee Morning!

Posted in News

The Coffee morning event held this week at The Hub organised by Lisa Eastwood was a really great idea. I met lots of people that hadn’t been to The Hub before and secured a booking for a large family group who will stay overnight in our building indoor camping on New Years Eve. They can use the WIFI, Wii, Xbox, all the sports equipment, TVs and have a movie. They’ll be busy watching the New Years Eve fireworks and then in morning dashing out to do the Lyme Lunge!

If anyone else would like to stay overnight at The Hub, adults, scouts, schools, please get in touch. Residential stays is a great way for The Hub to generate some income when the building is not being used for young peoples and community activities.Chalk board

Drumming at The Hub from 10.30am

Drumming at The Hub from 10.30am

In 2015, Britney Spears’ ‘Piece of Me’ tour had an average ticket price of £94. On the 28th of May, 2016, Lyme Regis based music making charity ‘B Sharp’ is offering you the chance to hear a vast selection of new and exciting local musicians perform, as well as the opportunity to take the stage yourself, in their annual busking festival. The cost of entry? Absolutely nothing.

So, Britney or Busking? I know where I’d rather be.

Taking place throughout the idyllic seaside town of Lyme Regis, the ‘B Sharp Busking Festival’ will showcase the talents of a number of local, young musicians. These individuals have developed their sounds with help from the charity’s weekly sessions led by a team of ‘music leaders’, who offer the highest level of experience as composers, musicians, singers, songwriters and technicians.

There will also be a wide variety of interactive elements provided for all, from singers just starting out to polished performers. The festival offers the chance to join an electronic jam session, take part in a drum circle, or even go solo with a ‘Play Me’ drum kit and piano being placed around the town.

However, the heart of the festival is built upon the busking. Hour long busking slots can be booked on the ‘B Sharp’ website, enabling you to perform at one of many locations all across the town. These are open to all, no matter your age, instrument or experience, and represent an opportunity that should not be missed. If you’ve ever dreamed of a life in the lights, now may well be your time to shine.

The ‘B Sharp’ charity does incredible work in the Lyme Regis area, aiding the development and promotion of aspiring young musicians. It regularly organises events that provide these artists with the stage they deserve. For example, at last year’s immensely successful ‘Big Mix Festival’, where attendees (myself included) were blown away not only by the professionalism of the event, but also the quality of the acts that performed.

For those who sign up to a busking slot, 60% of profits can go straight in your pocket, whilst it is asked that the remainder go towards funding the charity, helping them carry on their sterling work with young musicians locally.

So, come on down for a day of sand, seas and songs. Maybe even treat yourself to a post-busk bacon butty, you did just save £94 on a Britney Spears ticket after all.

If you want to find out more, you can go to ‘www.bsharp.uk.com’ or find the organisation at their Facebook page ‘B Sharp’.
