We formally launched the Freston Road Hub on Friday 17th August, with tea and cake on the terrace and a buzz of friendly visitors throughout the afternoon.  Guests met our current licensees and spent a relaxed few hours networking and chatting with likeminded people from a range of different organisations and backgrounds.

The hubs already attract an eclectic range of businesses including youth organisations, interior designers, IT companies, a hat designer, health care trainers, NHS partners and accountants.   IT consultant Derek White, of Banana IT Solutions, which has space at the Freston Road Hub said: “As a local resident and formerly a member of a local residents’ association, I’ve been involved in the development of this space for the last four years. It’s fantastic to finally see it open and to now be involved as a small business, making use of this amazing facility. I love that I can come and go as I please, and have space to hold meetings, deliver training and grow my business.”
