Our exciting new community hub, the Neighbourhood Hive, is beginning to take shape.

As dedicated volunteers paint, build and clean up the clutter, plans are forming around what services will be provided from the transformed industrial building.

We're excited to announce Bite the Blue, Hope in a Suitcase and City Women Hervey Bay will all have a presence in the new building.

Jess McCarthy, founder, CEO and director of Bite the Blue currently works from the Reconnect Youth Centre and will expand her presence into the Neighbourhood Hive.

Hope in a Suitcase, spearheaded by local coordinator Kathryn Rodda, will use the space for much needed storage, while City Women Hervey Bay, led by Jess Amos, has plans to establish a Baby Library in the Neighbourhood Hive.

The Baby Library will be a space where families can borrow donated equipment such as prams and cots.

Watch the videos to find out more about their plans.
