Community Open Day – ‘When in Doubt, Trust the Group’

We had a great time in Stevenage at the Community Open Day, which was more of a Community Hub ‘Lite’ version.

We met a few new people in Cinnabar at the coffee event in the morning, some of whom came and joined us in the BTC Centre later on in the morning, and again in the evening.

The day flowed nicely as we placed ourselves in the cafeteria and met with a gentle stream of people coming and going for drinks and ‘good conversations’.

We have been very pleased by the positive response to the Community Hub idea and have already had a number of requests from people who wish to become sponsors of the main hub in Hitchin from August. It has been pleasing to see people wishing to genuinely engage with Community activity in such generous spirit, with a true understanding of what it is we all wish to achieve.

The current sponsors wishing to offer bite sized advisory services to attendees as well as seminars and workshops, within the hub include: HR advice for small businesses and employees; Business Banking; Financial Planning; Insurance Advice; Business Advice; Personal Coaching & Counselling.

We are also delighted to have someone coming to the hub to offer short Reflexology treatments throughout the day and we, will have Sports Injury and Fitness Specialists on hand at some of the days offering support.

The link4Business event in the evening was a very fruitful meeting. Many of the participants had been at parts of the Hitchin Hub Day the previous week and so we took the opportunity to review the needs of the group, going forward. During the meeting more collaborations were formed and supportive friendships are beginning to grow. We will also now have a photographer and videographer attending the hub days to record and document the journey.

In addition to our Ska-Tea party in August, the Community Hub games night was also born as we believe that friendship is key to building a supportive and nurturing environment for growth in all ‘people and business matters’. Our motto says it all ‘Cum in Dubium, Fiducia Coetus’ or ‘When in Doubt, Trust the Group’.

All in all, we can safely say that it has been a very good and productive start to the first month of the hub. Watch this space for more news of the social events we will be holding in addition to the monthly Community Hub days. It is very exciting news.
