Our local Parish in partnership with Mothers Union are excited to be launching a Warm Space Hub on a Tuesday from 4pm – 8.30pm starting on Tuesday 18 October 2022. It will run weekly though until 28 March during term time and will tie in with the clocks going back in October and forward in March!
Much has been said about the fuel crisis and energy costs that families will face as the weather gets colder and we move into winter. Financial hardship is very real for many as the cost of living soars and it is with this in mind that the Warm Space Hub wants to reach out to families that maybe feeling the ‘pinch.’
It will be based out of the Old Palace, Glebe Road, Worthing, BN14 7PF and will be open to families with children aged 0 to age 10/11 (year 6). Children will be given a free hot meal and a drink and parents will be offered tea/coffee, soup and bread (free). It will also offer children and families the opportunity to socialise. There will not be internet access but there will be activities to keep children entertained and there will be a TV and DVD! This is not a child care provision, and children must be accompanied by an adult but it somewhere warm and safe that families can access once a week.
There is no cost and families do not have to commit to going every week if they don’t want to. The venue is able to hold a considerable number of people, however, it would be really helpful if you could indicate whether this is something you may like to avail yourself of as this will enable the Warm Space Hub to plan. Please let Kaarina know if you are interested either by email (firstname.lastname@example.org), phone or in person; if you are interested, it would help to know how many adults and how many children from your family would potentially attend and whether you would do this weekly or occasionally.
