group for and run by community groups in Westhoughton

Westhoughton Community Hub Westhoughton Community Hub

Background

The former Community College was taken over by Westhoughton Vision in 2017 with the support of Bolton Council, local councillors and enthusiastic volunteers, with the aim of both saving the building (now vacated by Bolton College), and providing a vibrant and useful hub for activities and groups within Westhoughton.

It is an ambitious project led by management group and a small committee taking on the centre and finding the right mix of activities and viable use that will see The Hub into the future. There are many regular activities and some innovative ideas for people of all ages to mix, learn and have fun. It is also the base for online Community Radio Station Howfen Radio which broadcasts during the day Monday to Saturday.

The Community Centre is available for hire for events meetings and parties.

A Grub Tub is available for donations to the Urban Outreach foodbank scheme. Items can also be donation for the 'Fresh-as-a-Daisy' campaign (feminine hygiene).

Visitors are welcome to find out more, drop-in for a chat or find out more about volunteering at The Hub.
