Where to go
Gamlingay Eco Hub
Gamlingay Eco Hub offers a wide range of events, activities, groups and clubs – it really does have something for everyone! It’s an Eco Hub because it is the most energy efficient community building in the region, and takes its commitment to the environment seriously whilst being a flexible and well-designed space for the community.
Here are just a few of the things on offer at the Eco Hub:
Library, internet suite and wifi
Anyone can visit the library and use the facilities, but to borrow books you’ll need to be a member of Cambridgeshire Libraries – find out more here.
Activities for older people
Carpet bowls, pilates, new age kurling, and a ‘knit and natter’ group are just a few of the activities aimed at older people at the Hub.
Activities for children and young people
For youngsters there is pre-schoolers’ story-time and cha cha chimps play group, as well as a playground just outside the Hub. For older children there is the Alice Lucas School of Dance and lots of sports clubs/practice sessions. Once a week there is a Youth Club and Café run by a youth development worker.
A weekly get-together over cake and a cuppa – everyone is welcome.
An opportunity to explore crafting and creativity in a friendly and supportive group.
Community groups & meetings
The local Gardening Society and History Society meet at the Hub, and so does the Parish Council and local Women’s Institute.
