Unfortunately as of 5th November, The Hub in Melbourn will be closed until the government says they can reopen. Throughout October committee share their news, and look forward to many more good months post-lockdown….
Falling into line with many other businesses nationwide, who have decided to adapt to our troubled times, the Melbourn Hub is offered 25% off all its Breakfast menu combinations between 10am-12noon, Monday to Saturday during this October.
To put a smile on everyone’s faces, the directors decided not to cancel Halloween for the younger members of the family, and from the 26th to the 31st of October ‘Spooky Bear’ bags were on offer at just £3.50. The contents included a sandwich, crisps, yogurt tube, juice, and a Hubby Bear sticker, plus a special ‘Spooky Bear’ colouring sheet, and ‘creepy cookie’. And so as the adults don’t feel left out there is also a free hot beverage with all ‘Spooky Bear’ purchases. The atrium was suitably decorated.
The Hub Management are pleased to announce that the Hub Cafe continues to weather the storm with their current restrictions in place. John Travis, chair of the Board of Directors states;
“We continue to adapt and change methods whenever appropriate, but remain ever grateful for the wonderful support emanating from our loyal customers, whom we welcome to come over and experience our immaculately clean and friendly environment.
On Your Bike
The Melbourn Hub added yet another service to its numerous community roles, when it hosted a Dr. Bike event.
During the day, from 9am until 4pm, David Whateley, a trained mechanic from the Bike Depot in Cambridge, set up shop, and carried out a full service on locals’ cycles, replacing the likes of faulty brake pads, cables, and inner tubes, all completely free of charge. The community gesture was designed not only to create awareness of alternative transport to the motor car, but also to underline bike safety aspects and to stimulate more of the population into returning to the saddle again.
A constant stream of trusty steeds, some in regular daily use, others recovered from the depths of the garage or garden shed after many years of sad neglect, were presented for attention during the course of the day.
The Dr. Bike events are available to charities, events, and various organisations, and can be organised by phoning the Bike Depot on: 01223 789606
