Feb 2021: Please note due to England #Lockdown3 the Appleby Hub Cafe will be closed until further notice – we await announcements on changes via the HM Government ‘roadmap’ (any updates will be posted on our FB/Instagram)
This is THE place to be when it comes to satisfying any cravings for the best in wholefoods and all things homemade with a wider emphasis on well-being for all. The Hub Cafe and Community enterprise is in a former Methodist Chapel, in the heart of Appleby-in-Westmorland, Cumbria.
In early 2015 the future of the centre was in jeopardy.
Severe flooding in 2015 meant that significant investment was needed by Cumbrian charity, The Oaklea Trust to get the venture back on its feet and, in the Spring of 2016, the Appleby Hub was launched.
The Hub Cafe is open Wednesday to Saturday, from 10am to 3pm with a menu full to the brim with tasty whole-foods & everything prepared by the Right2Work team (you can also take away our Hub made bread and much more)
In Summer 2020 – our new craft shop opened full of lovely work from local artisans and a well organised and stocked second hand bookshop run by Appleby Rotary.
It’s all part of the vision for the centre to be a ‘hub’ for the local community and for all interests, ages and abilities with a focus on creativity and well-being.(The Hub Cafe offers day opportunities for people with learning disabilities).
In Spring 2019 Appleby Hub came under the wing of Right2Work.
