Following a successful pilot scheme last year, Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council are once again running the Warm Hub Scheme to help keep residents connected, warm and safe during the winter months.
Every Tuesday and Thursday throughout December, January and February, the Warm Hub Scheme will run in Portadown Town Hall and the Tommy Makem Arts & Community Centre, Keady between 10am and 1pm.
These Warm Hubs are open to everyone and offer the chance for local residents to drop in and enjoy a hot drink, have a chat, connect to Wi-Fi or read the paper in a warm and safe environment.
“We are delighted to be able to offer these Warm Hubs to our local residents throughout the dark and cold winter months, as we know that this time of year can feel lonely for some,” commented the Lord Mayor, Alderman Margaret Tinsley.
“As the cost of living crisis also continues and residents are facing spiralling costs in all areas of life, these Hubs offer a warm and safe place for people who need that extra bit of help, support and respite from everyday pressures.”
Warm Hub dates:
5th, 7th 12th, 14th, 19th, 21st December 2023; 2nd, 4th, 9th, 11th, 16th, 18th, 23rd, 25th, 30th Jan 2024; 1st, 6th, 8th, 13th, 15th, 20th, 22nd, 27th, 29th Feb 2024.
