The SEA Climate Hub

The hub, located in the old NatWest bank (Clinton Place, Seaford), represents the culmination of many months of work by the Seaford Environmental Alliance. The Team have secured a year-long lease for the building and in the last couple of weeks have been joined by volunteers coming forward to help clean the hub and prepare for the opening to coincide with the start of the critical COP26 Climate talks.

The hub is a great space for people to gather together and find out more about environmental issues locally and worldwide. If you’re interested in getting involved please contact us.

We’re open for you to drop in and say hello Thursday, Friday & Saturday from 9am-12noon.

Keep an eye on the events calendar for other happenings at the hub.

We will be open for you to drop in 9-12 Thursday and Friday, most Saturdays there will be an activity running. See our events calendar for more details.

Below are some of the activities going on in the hub:

Community Larder

We’ll pass on food that shops and supermarkets can’t sell but are still good to eat. You can also pass on your own unwanted sealed packaged food items that are still in date or fresh fruit and vegetables. Surplus home grown veg is always welcome.

Repair Cafe

A monthly Repair Cafe running on the 4th Saturday of the month from 10am – 1pm (December 2021 cafe will be on 18th). Bring your small items and a volunteer will show you how to fix them. There will also be tea and cake while you wait.

Visit our Repair Cafe page.

Energy bill switching

Bring your energy bill and a Community Energy Champion (supported by Ovesco) can help you check you are on the best tariff for you.

This will be on certain days at the moment while people are training to do this. Visit CES to find out how to become a community energy champion.

Climate Cafe.

The Climate Cafe

Held on the last Tuesday of the month at 6 – 7:30pm. Guy from the Climate Psychology Alliance will facilitate a safe space for people to share their thoughts and feelings about the climate crisis.

There will be an extra Climate Café on November 2nd at 6 – 7:30pm to coincide with COP26.

Talks & Films.

Talks & Films

We will be holding a range of talks from local experts on environmental issues with a chance to ask questions. There are many informative films we can share with a chance to discuss afterwards. Keep an eye on our calendar for details.

Please get in touch if you would like to share a talk or have a film suggestion.

Workshops

An opportunity for us to all share our skills!

Repairing, maintenance, upcycling, making, cooking, gardening, crafting

Please get in touch if you have a skill you would be happy to pass on.

Swaps

As well as our Re-New store, we will often hold specific swaps such as clothes, books, toys for a chance for people to refresh without buying new.

Please get in touch if you have ideas for this.

Food growing.

Growing

Learning to grow food is an important skill. We aim to have a community food growing space soon and we’ll also use the hub to share growing opportunities.

Please get in touch if you want to get involved or add to our growing resources.

We will have a permanent seed swap drawer in the hub so please bring your excess seeds.

Food events

Food is a bigger part of our lives than we realise. We need to make more time and thought for our food. We can’t cook in the hub at the moment but we will use this barrier to be more creative with our food events.

Please get in touch if you’d like to get involved.

Re-New Store

We will collect items that may not be useful for the charity shops but still have life in them to pass on. Please see our list of what we collect.

Childrens art.

Children’s area

To allow time for adults to talk, we have created a children’s area with toys and books to read.

Young people

We would like to enable your environmental ideas and projects to happen. We have the space, we can help with resources. Please come and chat about your ideas.

Calendar of events

Check our calendar for events. We will slowly be adding to it as we get going so please check back often.
