Wroxham Hub wins national building award 

Wroxham HubThe Hub, the home of Wroxham & Hoveton United Reformed Church, has won a prestigious building award.
On 16th May 2014, two members of the church were invited to travel with representatives of Fisher Bullen, the builders of The Hub, together with the architect, to London to the awards ceremony of the National Federation of Builders. Hundreds of applications had been received, and The Hub was one of 13 applications that had reached the final in the 'Renovation' category.  

The Hub was originally a car garage, that was extended and converted into a church and community centre. The Hub opened in August 2013 and the church now uses the building for services, children's activities, a weekly coffee drop in and lunch, prayer meetings and as a Foodbank distribution centre. In addition, the building is used extensively by community groups for everything from baby massage to U3A.

The awards were presented at the Connaught Rooms, Holborn, by TV presenter Dominic Littlewood. In the renovation category, two winners were announced, a small firm and a big firm, and then The Hub was announced as one of the three “Highly Commended” winners, being presented with an engraved glass trophy. 

Church elder, Corrie Mould, commented, "The Hub looked really good on the screen, and we felt very proud of our building, its architect and builders.  Congratulations to Fisher Bullen for their award winning building practises and difficulties overcome!"
