This will include Hub activities such as our Coffee Mornings and Tea & Talks, and special events including bats, belfries, cars and cakes!

Christmas Tree Festival 2024 (YES, 2024!)

Thank you so much to all the community businesses and individuals who supported our Christmas Tree Festival in 2023 – together you raised £170 for our Community Funds for which we are very grateful and thank you for the support. The contributions from this support will be used to enable us to provide even more activities and special events in 2024 for the whole community. The trees looked so beautiful, especially at the Christingle Service, the Christmas Concert and the Carols by Candlelight. Thank you to the following for their continuing support:

Somerset Coast Path Passport- Huntspill Hub Included!

We are very excited to announce that the Huntspill Community Hub will be featured in the new reprinted version of the Somerset Exmoor Coast Path for 2024! The passport has spaces in it for visitors to collect souvenir stamps. This is being funded by the Somerset Trails Partnership so will be FREE and is being distributed via visitor information centres along the route (we also hope to have some passports available in the Huntspill Community Hub.

As we are located close to the path we thought that it would be great if we could be included as a stamping point. We will be providing an individual stamp and ink plus a notebook to record who has visited us. The idea behind it is to get people who are walking the trail to visit businesses along the route collect a stamp, hopefully take a photo and share on social media using  #SomersetExmoorCoast.

You can see all the current stamping points here Stamp Trail PDF     and we will be added very soon!
