We have made lots of Eco Hub companions over the years who have utilised the space in the hub, or have attended an event here.

Whilst the hub is out of action, we still wanted to provide the opportunity for you to have access to the brilliant stakeholders, community partners and charities who have and will continue to use this great space.

In the meantime, we will be sharing stakeholder partner links and information below for you to find out more about the great work/activities they are involved in.
