The Watermark Community Hub opened it’s doors on the 24th June 2016, Christmas Eve in the Calder Valley, it marked the beginning of a festive weekend. You may be wondering why we had Christmas in June, people here didn’t get a Christmas last year due to the floods so we celebrated 6 months late.
The Community Hub was trimmed with a Christmas tree, santa, reindeer, mince pies, chocolates and wine. It was slightly surreal to see the town trimmed for Christmas in the June sunshine!
The Mayor of Hebden Royd Tony Hodginson officially cut the ribbon and welcomed everybody in for a mince pie and a tipple.
The community hub will be a great source of information for all flood related topics, Community Foundation will be on hand to discuss grants that are still available for those in need, Credit Union will be there every Thursday, The Environment Agency ,Floodsave and information on Watermark Flood Fund. You can find out how you can become a Watermark member and support your community in building a resilience fund for future floods.
A number of Watermark products are on display and there is an opportunity for businesses to use the hub as a pop up shop, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if this is something you could make use of. Watermark tea towels and tote bags are available to buy from the hub and wellies and umbrellas may make an appearance over the coming months.
The Watermark Hub will be open for 6 months , Wednesday through to Saturday and is funded by Chadwick Lawrence Solicitors.
