RESIDENTS who need an escape from the cold this winter are now able to use the Amelia Scott centre as it becomes the second council-owned warm space in Tunbridge Wells.
The Amelia Scott is open to anyone who needs somewhere to be warm in a response to the increasing numbers of people who are struggling to afford their heating this winter.
The community hub and integrated service facility on Mount Pleasant Road will be assisting visitors as they enjoy the centre’s museum, library and exhibitions in a warm and comfortable environment. The Amelia Scott says it is a safe, friendly and warm building which is open every day to anyone needing warmth and comfort for as long as they need it.
The first warm space announced by the Council this year was The TN2 Community Centre in Greggs Wood Road that has a sports hall and library which are open to the public.
As the energy crisis continues, more community centres and local businesses are signing up to be ‘warm spaces’ in an effort to help those who may be struggling.
They offer a warm place for people to go as well as offering free food and drink, WIFI, electrical charging, and social interaction.
Some of those spaces around Tunbridge Wells are: The Kitchen Table, Camden Road; The Salvation Army, Bayhall Road; The Zero Waste Company, The Pantiles; Charlies Angel’s Kitchens, St Paul’s Church Centre; Southborough Civic Centre, London Road.
