A guide to local warm spaces through the week

In response to the cost of living crisis and cold weather, a network of local warm spaces has been set up.

These “warm hubs” have a variety of free refreshments on offer, such as hot drinks, soup, cake, biscuits and baked goods.

They also offer a warm welcome, the ability to work quietly on laptops, play games, chat etc.
