A brand new community hub of services in Holbeach has opened to the public following a £1.2 million investment.

The first stage in the development focused on a brand new food store at the site in Fleet Street.

Shoppers in Holbeach benefit from the upgraded store which includes an instore bakery, Costa Coffee machine and an improved chilled range. Now, a hub of services has been created alongside the food store which includes a pharmacy, post office and library. 

The hub opens its doors on Monday 13th February and an official opening ceremony will take place on Wednesday 22nd February.

Chief Executive Ursula Lidbetter said: “As a co-op, we share our profits with our members and their communities. One of the ways we do this is through investing in our services and sustaining vital community facilities, such as post offices and libraries. 

“Creating this convenient hub is a great way to serve our loyal customers and members in Holbeach.”

The new pharmacy is double the size of the previous site in High Street, as well as having two purpose built consultation rooms, a more efficient space for the dispensary and a separate counter for privacy.

Lincolnshire Co-op’s post office has moved from High Street and is a modern branch with three serving counters and extended opening hours for the convenience of customers.

The Society has also launched its third community library on site. There is a children’s area and self-service machine together with 4,000 books provided by the UK’s largest public libraries and leisure operator, GLL.

The library has relocated from its home in Church Street and is supported by 22 volunteers.

Volunteers are still wanted for the library in Holbeach, so if you love books or just want to give something back to your community you can get involved.

Register your interest in becoming a volunteer by contacting Lincolnshire Co-op Volunteer Co-ordinator Rachel Ashmore on (01522) 785 299 or email rashmore@lincolnshire.coop.
