Estuary is building a multipurpose Hub on the site of Topsham Library
After years of fundraising, work is now underway to build a Community Hub in Topsham. When the Hub opens to the public in summer 2018, it will include a Café, contemporary Library, Exercise Room, Treatment Rooms, Wet Rooms, Laundry, Meeting Rooms and a free to use cash machine. All areas will be fully wheelchair accessible.
Estuary is working with local building company, Enelco, whose first job was to dismantle the old library building which was taken to Newton Abbot to be recycled as office space.
Nearly £2 million was raised from local donors and national funders including a major grant worth £778,100 from the Big Lottery Fund, made possible by National Lottery funding.
Topsham Library has temporarily relocated to the Nelson Close Community Room and is open:
- Monday 2.00pm – 5.00pm
- Tuesday 10.00am – 1.00pm & 2.00pm – 5.00pm
- Thursday 10.00am – 1.00pm
- Friday 2.30pm – 5.00pm
- Saturday 10.00am – 1.00pm
Chief Executive, Rachel Gilpin says:
“We are all over the moon to finally start work on the Hub. For years, we have been extremely stretched trying to respond to more and more local people turning to us for help.
“A huge thank you goes out to all those individuals in our community who have helped shape plans for the Hub and responded so generously to our fundraising appeals, without whom, this project would not be possible.”
