Description

Our journey began in 2017. When founder Gitti Coats saw the need for a hub to bring the town together, she formed the beginnings of the Haverhub team, and together with Jerry Evans secured the Grade II listed old post office, built in 1936. The building is an integral part of Haverfordwest, but many people have no idea how big the whole site is. To the rear, a large sorting office, courtyard and depot stretch out to the riverside, which were used by Royal Mail until the late 80s. Largely abandoned since then, they gradually fell into disrepair, which opened up a regeneration opportunity!From this, Haverhub was born, and our team was joined by a host of creative, forward-thinking locals who wanted to help shape the project and share their ideas. Volunteers, termed ‘HaverHelpers’, removed old furniture and emptied the site, and artists contributed pieces to decorate the space. With the help of many hands, a program of community events took shape. There was only one thing left to do…

Throw a big opening party! In true Haverhub style, the event featured local live music and caterers, and was backed by our patron Jerome Flynn (Game of Thrones), who’s initial support helped kickstart Haverhub’s journey. The launch received rave reviews, and we loved sharing our previously unseen space with a vibrant new audience

Since 2017, whilst continuing to host a number of events, our small team has worked extremely hard to secure funding from various organisations on both a regional and national level. Every penny of funding goes towards improving our site and equipment, and we are still 100% volunteer led. Being awarded local grants such as ‘Enhancing Pembrokeshire’, and broader awards from the National Lottery, the Welsh Assembly Government, and the EU Regional Development Fund (among others) has shown us that many people also see Haverhub’s potential. We hope our project inspires other groups across Wales and the UK to put time into similar ventures.
