Monmouth Community Hub provides cure for winter blues

8th January 2018

Monmouth Community Hub is hosting an event on Monday 15th January designed to dispel the winter blues and give people the chance to meet new friends and have fun.  The morning starts with coffee, tea and cakes at 10am followed by a game of bingo.  Later on, there will be an opportunity to learn knitting and crochet, experience a taster session provided by the council’s community learning team and play a selection of board games in the afternoon.  In addition, advisors will provide advice on debt and on mental health.  All are welcome to this free event.

Like all of Monmouthshire’s hubs, Monmouth provides the opportunity to sign up for a library card and enjoy the benefits of membership.  This allows people to borrow library materials, to read a book to make them smile or achieve their goals for 2018.  Monmouth Community Hub is stocked with materials to suit everyone and provides a digital online service offering free eBooks and audio downloads.

Monmouthshire’s cabinet member with responsibility for community hubs, Councillor Bob Greenland said: “Our community hubs and libraries are the very cure for winter blues!  They’re within close proximity of most people in the county and they offer education, leisure, fun and great events for all ages.  This occasion is a good example of how our hubs support local communal activity, even in the depths of winter.”
