The hub concept is a micro version of the way Time Credits is currently run across
the network. The Parish Council are the Hub group and very local groups and
partners sign up to be part of the Time Credits programme under the Mawdesley
Information and encouragement to get involved cascades centrally through the
Parish council and data reports although completed by individual groups are
returned via the Time Credits administrator for the hub.
Parish newsletters have been used to cascade information about Time Credits
and so far four local groups have indicated they would like to be involved. These
include a horse riding centre, local Church, folk group and the Millennium Green
The parish council will also use Time Credit to run community activities to
encourage more new people to become involved and connected in the
Natalie Holt, Community Development Officer who devised the hub concept has
taken the role of developing the Mawdesley Hub with the parish council clerk.
This is a really exciting time and evidence of Time Credits starting to embed
within council service delivery.
