Lots happening at Tiger Community Hub

Lots happening at Tiger Community Hub

November 10th, 2022

“Tiger supports people and we have definitely been doing that over the last few months.”


The Tiger Community Hub has been open since April and the time has flown!


The focus has been on working with lots of different organisations to grow the range of community activities on offer.


Arts and crafts are still at the core of our offer, however, we have a lot wider range now:

Peer support for mental health and trauma with Brave

English, art and work skills for refugees with Refugee Roosts

Menopause Cafe with Evolve

Craftivism with Deacon Julie

Arts and Makers with XR

Crochet with Barbara

Dementia Drop In with Trent Dementia

Mother & Toddler Group

Gig Nights with local artists

Soap Making


Along with room hire available - both the activity space and the meeting room.


The food offerings have expanded in the cafe with Hot Food Tuesday and various hot food options on other days. Don't forget we are open every day for hot and cold drinks, sandwiches, snacks and cake.


We are very keen to support people struggling with the cost of living and are currently trying to access funding for Warm Tiger Days. In the meantime we ran a Wellbeing Day that included free food and drinks along with activities and information to improve wellbeing. You are welcome to join us and sit for a while in a friendly space if you are out and about.


We are adding to our fundraising activities by introducing our Gig Nights. Join us for a chilled live music session with local artists. With a bar and light food snacks served, it is a great night out whilst helping us raise vital funds to keep the roof over our heads.

The Gig Nights are run in partnership with Refugee Roots and money raised on the night helps both organisations continue offering support services at Tiger Community Hub.


We do still have our ever popular 'prize every time' tombola running, so please have a go when you are in.
