Bersted Hub redecoration and launch

Osborne, along with the Bognor Regis Armed Forces and Veterans, joined forces to support Arun District Council to give the Bersted Green Community Hub a fresh look ready for its relaunch.

The Bersted Green Hub is part of the Arun Community Engagement Project and is a space to bring all members of the local community together to meet socially, exercise and gain help and support from the Arun Wellbeing team and local charities.

Travis Perkins Littlehampton generously donated paint and supplies so the project could get off to a flying start! Osborne Operative Steve, alongside the veteran volunteers, got to work and gave the hall a fresh coat of paint.

Complete with its new look, Bersted Green Community Hub opened its doors to welcome the local community for its long awaited relaunch on the 2nd April 2022. The turnout was overwhelming. The Chairman of Arun District Council and Leader of the Arun District Council, Councillors and Arun staff all attended this grand reopening alongside Arun residents.

At the event staff were able to engage with the community and get feedback on what services they would like to see at the hub in the future. Local charities attended to give support and advice on the services they offered.

There was a variety of activities for attendees to enjoy, making it a fun-filled day for everyone.  With a theme of inclusion, the event managed fun fitness dance classes, bouncy castle entertainment, and an Easter Art competition with an array of refreshments. The Chairman of Arun District Council had the difficult job of judging the art competition, presenting the prizes provided by Osborne.

Robin Wickham, Group Head of Community Wellbeing, ‘Osborne’s¬†willingness to get involved and help the team out was much appreciated and greatly contributed to the success of the event. I would also like to thank the Osborne team for decorating the Hub which now looks very much more inviting for the community’
