North Lynn Food Hub Launch


A partnership between King's Lynn Minster, Freebridge Community Housing, The Beacon and Norfolk Community Foundation, has seen to the development of the new North Lynn Food Hub which is now based at 4 Walpole Road in King’s Lynn (PE30 2DZ).

The new North Lynn base is a renovated property provided by social housing provider Freebridge and marks a new dawn for the Food Hub - having been a pop-up shop at The Beacon Church for the past 10 months.

Open every Wednesday and Friday from 12-2pm, the Food Hub is run by a voluntary group with a mission to build a stronger community by providing affordable food and connecting people to useful services.

It was a proud moment for all involved in the project when the mayor of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk, Councillor Paul Bland, cut the ribbon to officially declare it open, along with the help from local North Lynn resident, 2 year-old MJ!

Andrew Frere-Smith, who is the Food Hub’s Project Manager as well as being a Development Worker with charity Imagine Norfolk Together, said: “It is so exciting to see all the partners working together to enable such an important initiative.

“I would like to thank Norfolk Community Foundation for the vision and funding, Freebridge Community Housing for the amazing premises, and the Beacon Church for their generous support in so many ways, including providing a hall for our pop-up shop.

“Finally, I would like to thank the residents of north Lynn who have given us such a warm welcome. Together we can achieve so much more than working alone.”

Anita Jones, CEO at Freebridge, added: “I’m so pleased to see the Food Hub come to fruition, my admiration goes to all the partners and volunteers who have worked so tirelessly to get the project off the ground for the benefit of the community”.

A big thank you to everyone who attended the launch and supported on the day!
