The Queen’s Park Café Hub in Bedford has reopened after a successful stint as a warm hub earlier this year.

Open fortnightly during term time, the hub, jointly run and funded by the BPHA, Bedford Borough Family Hubs and Faith in Queens Park, will offer warm meals and refreshments at affordable prices. Services such as Impakt, Citizens Advice Bureau and the NHS will give free advice and support.

Resident Safina said: “I volunteer at the hub and approach it with passion and 100% commitment. It benefits us in a number of ways, whether mentally, emotionally or socially and it really boosts our confidence and self-esteem.”

BPHA’s chief executive, Richard Hill said: “It is wonderful to see and feel the community spirit as you walk into the hub. People in and around Queen’s Park will now have access to important local services in the heart of their community.”

Bedford Borough Council hopes to create Family Hubs where parents, carers and families can access information and support.
