SKDC Community Hub hits major milestone

South Kesteven District Council's Community Hub has hit a major milestone by answering its 2000th request for help during the Coronavirus lockdown.

The hub acts as a bridge between residents of South Kesteven's towns and villages who need help, and those who want to offer help. About 1,500 volunteers have contacted the hub and are actively supporting vulnerable residents, working with 55 registered voluntary groups.

SKDC's Cabinet Member for Communities, Cllr Annie Mason, said: "I want to thank everyone who has been working in the hub, which has proved to be a lifeline for so many of our residents.

The feedback we have received from those we have helped has been truly heart-warming."

The hub can be contacted at SKCommunityHub@southkesteven.gov.uk or on 01476 406177.

Please note the Hub opening hours are now 8.45am-5.15pm (Monday-Thursday) and Friday 8.45am-4.45pm.
