Stradbroke estate’s new community resource

Wednesday, May 7, 2014

Local MP Meg Munn is delighted to support a new community initiative in the heart of the Stradbroke estate. Set up in April 2013 and run by volunteers, the Link Community Hub’s centre piece is its shop which relies solely on donations, with profits going back into the local community. Meg recently visited the Link and met one of the founders, Helen Eadon, to learn more.

Helen explained the need for a community space in Stradbroke. Many residents are struggling financially and find it difficult to access services based some distance away. This is a particular problem for elderly people who feel increasingly isolated.

The Link aims to bring the community together by offering groups, activities and advice sessions for local people. They will run coffee mornings, a drop in for young people, and movie matinees for the elderly. There will also be the opportunity for internet access for children to use and to help people looking for jobs.

Helen explained just how quickly the project has grown over the past year. While Meg was there a new kitchen was being fitted, with plans for a community garden to grow vegetables and herbs. Meg was really impressed to hear about the positive response from local people and that the Link already has 17 volunteers.

Meg said:

“It is fantastic to see members of the community coming together to improve their local area. The Link is a great initiative which can break down barriers and build bridges between different generations.

Helen and her team should be proud of the work they are doing and fill a need in Stradbroke. I can’t wait to visit again later in the year to see how things have developed.”

For further information and if you are interested in volunteering, please contact Helen Eadon on 07973837664 or visit:
