Community Hubs OPEN: Helping You Keep Warm in Winter

Maidstone Museum, St Faith’s St

Maidstone Borough Council (MBC) is opening its doors to offer residents the chance to pop-in for a free hot drink and a warm place to be for the day.

Two venues will be used as part of the ‘MBC Community Hub with a Warm Welcome’ project which will be the Maidstone Museum and the Trinity Community Hub from the beginning of January continuing through the winter months. 

The Council’s Community Hubs are offering places within the town centre where people can be assured of finding a safe, warm and friendly environment in which to enjoy refreshments, social activity, information and the company of other people.

“As the cost of living and heating our homes increases, the Council is looking at supporting our residents in as many different ways that we possibly can.  As part of this, we are opening two of our venues to offer a community hub with a warm welcome at the Museum and Trinity.  These hubs will be offering free tea and coffee, biscuits, activities and books and a warm welcome to all residents looking for a post-Christmas cuppa and a friendly chat this winter.”
