Seeking out wellbeing

Gareth Mitchell, president of the Rye and Winchelsea Rotary Club and other club members visited the Hub, the new community wellbeing centre in Rye last week to meet Barry Nealon, chairman, and Sally Compton, vice chairman, of the Rye, Winchelsea & District Memorial Hospital Charitable Trust, for a tour of the facilities.

The club has been a supporter of the project and has also donated a print “Sun in the dunes at Camber” by David Purdie, which is in the reception area.

The facilities include zones for therapy, social activities, coffee shop for snacks and light lunches, and an atrium with seating for those all-important chats and maybe a little gossip. Another key feature is the meeting room which includes a big screen and state of the art surround sound systems available for training, lectures or even a film show.

Access is easy for all to use and includes a lift to the first floor along with ample parking and even charging points for mobility scooters.

Gareth stated: “This is a wonderful addition to facilities available to improve the wellbeing of the residents of Rye and the local community. I understand that the objective is to deliver services to our community at low cost with any surpluses to be reinvested in the running of the centre”.
