Community Hub

The community hub is situated at 132 Shawbridge Street, in the former Shawbridge Nursery building.  The building lay empty for several years until PAN leased it in April 2015.  It opened to the community in August 2015, although we had been developing the community garden which surrounds the building since 2013.

The hub is staffed by our fulltime Co-ordinator Fiona Eadie, who is available in the hub during opening hours.

We run a range of ongoing activities as well as a range of courses/classes and events from time to time. Here is our current weekly timetable (click the activity name to learn more).
