Residents in the village of Humbie, in East Lothian, have welcomed the recent opening of the new Humbie Hub in the heart of the village.
The Humbie Hub project involved the complete reconfiguration of the original village shop and house, extending and refurbishing the accommodation to create facilities for a new post office and a much larger shop and also a community café/bistro, a unit for small businesses and other flexible community spaces.
The emphasis of the project has been about creating a vibrant and welcoming meeting and gathering place for the community; a point of reference for activity, information and local news, for “meeting, making and sharing”. The Hub is intended to promote local produce and enterprise as part of a sustainability agenda that also includes biomass district heating and Solar power generation.
The shop, café and post office were opened in March 2015 with the final phase of works to construct a new office completed in November 2015.
