The Hub on the Green Colourful Logo

The Hub on the Green represents a new era in the life of Bournville Hub. A refreshed visual identity compliments our renewed desire to provide something extraordinary within our local community.

Original trustees John Dolan (Chair) and Moira Wright have been joined by two new trustees, Edward Rutledge and Brett Welch and co-opted Arthur Tsang of Bournville Village Trust (BVT). 

Our new Hub Manager, Lisa Robinson joins to continue to develop the Hub to be a modern and inclusive space on Bournville Green, offering lots of diverse activities, that will infuse and influence all aspects of Bournville life. 

The history of the hub

Let's remember how we got here

Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Hub catered for over 50 different activity groups, all using the space for different purposes.

In its early days, it began as a new form of the Busy Parents Network, set up by Sarah Mullen - the driving force behind the Hub - to bring together busy parents – all parents! Activities ranged from baby yoga to book groups, to language and computer classes.

The Hub also housed a separate charity, Bournville Bookfest, which grew massively drawing in many children, families and schools in Bournville, Birmingham and beyond, to a celebration of books and reading.

This all changed in March 2020. As with so many community gatherings, lockdown put a stop to community activity.

Bournville Hub was repurposed to become a centre of support, co-ordinating food box deliveries and neighbourhood street champions – during difficult times for many in the Bournville area. 

The Old Hub Logo

It was at this time that the idea of a bookshop was conceived and the Bookshop on the Green was subsequently opened in 2020. The bookshop has been hugely popular with both locals and people from across the city. 

In the aftermath of the pandemic, the Hub and its Trustees recognised that it must resume its role with the community, to meet its charitable objectives to offer lifelong learning, information and creative and arts activities for local people.
