Eyemouth Harbour Trust have entered into an agreement with Town Hub Limited, [branded as HomeTown Hub] who will be one of the anchor tenants for the spaces at the new harbour pavilion [former Old Fishmarket site], Eyemouth Harbour.
The first-floor space, comprising five individual pods will be marketed under the Hometown Hub flexible office/meeting/event space model and will be available for bookings for commercial and recreational use by businesses, organisations, the local community, and individuals. This includes fully furnished and serviced desk spaces, office and meeting facilities available for occasional or short-term use. The fully accessible spaces, accessed via a staircase at the south end and a platform lift at the north end feature wi-fi, heating, monitors, and access to printers, WCs and a small kitchenette facility.
The larger open plan ground floor space (circa 65sqm) will be available as flexible event space which can be booked in conjunction with first floor space or as a standalone event space for commercial and private use e.g. farmers & craft markets/pop-up shops, music & concerts, art workshops/ demonstrations, exhibitions, training venue, private parties, weddings, etc. and local cultural events and festivals. The fully accessible ground floor has an accessible toilet, small pantry and several doors opening out onto the harbour vista, offering an extension of the indoor space.
Director of HomeTown Hub, Andrew Earnshaw commented, “We are so pleased to have this opportunity to manage this wonderful, innovative and beautiful new building. Eyemouth Harbour Trust have shown amazing vision to so creatively transform the harbour area and we are delighted to add this building to our offices and workspaces throughout the Borders, creating flexibility for local business, charities and the community alike.”
Christine Bell, CEO at Eyemouth Harbour Trust, said: “The Trust is excited to be able to share this space through Hometown Hub. One of the key advantages of the agreement is that the spaces will be available for a variety of users, for a broad range of purposes, with flexible timings to suit the user, whether a business, individual or community group. We’re looking forward to welcoming Hometown Hub to Eyemouth.
