The Uplyme Community Sponsorship (UCS) scheme was set up last year and already has a supporter’s group of over 50 volunteers. Its aim is to resettle a refugee family from Syria under the Home Office Resettlement programme in the Lyme Regis-Uplyme area. So far, about half the minimum amount required to start the process has been raised through a series of fundraising events and the Charity Disco on Saturday 28th September at The Hub is another! We hope you will come along and support us.
The Old School House Cafe is our community cafe at The Hub which will be open every Tuesday and Thursday between 9am and 1pm for coffee, refreshments and meeting friends. Our team of volunteers will be serving in the cafe and we plan to offer a series of food related training courses and cookery sessions for anyone to attend. We have a book swap and plant swap too, so come to our opening on Tuesday 10th September to see what this new community joint venture with LymeForward is all about.
B Sharp offer weekly music sessions for young people to come along to at The Hub to play and learn about musical instruments, voice, song writing and performance. Hub Jams is the Tuesday session for young people age 11+ and Boombox on a Thursday is after school for primary school aged children. Both sessions are relaxed and fun and offer a unique way of learning music. For more information go to https://bsharp.org.uk/weekly-music/
