Get Connected at The Bromley Farm Wellbeing Hub open event

19.09.2018

Congleton residents are being invited to attend a celebration event at Bromley Farm Wellbeing Hub on Thursday 27th September

The event will mark the unveiling of the hub as one of Congleton’s new Connected Communities Centres and will take place from 2pm – 5pm, with an opening ceremony taking place at 3.30pm.

Community venues across Cheshire East are changing to Connected Communities Centres in a council-run scheme to make a wider range of activities and support services available to those that need them. The centres are run in collaboration with local service providers like Plus Dane Housing, who run Bromley Farm Wellbeing Hub.

Usman Ashiq, Strategic Partnerships Manager at Plus Dane Housing, said “We’re delighted that the Bromley Farm Wellbeing Hub is to be recognised as a Connected Communities Centre. We have so many success stories of people who have improved their lives through better wellbeing, lifestyle, work & training opportunities or simply making new friends.”

“We’re urging the local community to come along and find out about all the exciting new projects and activities on offer including new Stay & Play sessions, Health & Wellbeing activities, and hear about the fantastic range of free courses and learning opportunities that Macclesfield College will be offering too. There will also be free food & cakes, face painting and more.”

Working with service providers and communities gives more residents access to services as well as providing a place to meet, get support or learn something new. The council plans to establish 30 centres across the borough by the end of this year. Cheshire East Council has invested £150,000 in developing Connected Communities centres and each one is supported by a neighbourhood partnership representing local people as well as a range of agencies, including the police, health services and the voluntary sector.
