Community

Community spirit is strong in Stoke and Morice Town, over the last two years we have seen our community pull together to look out for each other. There are small acts of kindness everywhere, with people litter picking, volunteering in The Village Hub and slowly turning our community spaces and park into something we can be proud.

We have also developed partnerships with members of the community – with Sue a local artist leading our Art Group, Sarah is heads up our writing group and Clive is running Squat Theatre in The Village Hub.  We are proud that these relationships that have been forged and are keen to work with the community to develop more.

Our aim at The Village Hub is to build on this community Spirit and ensure that everyone takes an active part in where we live – what are you dreams, hopes and aspirations for Stoke and Morice Town? Pop in and chat to us about how together we can make positive impacts to our community and in turn our well being.
