The Hub from Greener and Cleaner

The Hub from Greener and Cleaner, is a community space upstairs in the Glades, run by local people wanting to support their community with greener and more sustainable living, from drop-in conversations and questions answered to workshops, talks, lending schemes and more.

The community-powered Hub is an exciting space for people to come and learn more about our local environment and how we can make a positive difference from the comfort of our homes, schools, businesses and wider communities, all whilst improving wellbeing and reducing costs.

The Hub hosts Bromley’s Library of Things. The Library of Things will also help Bromley residents to save money and reduce waste by affordably renting out useful items such as pressure washers, hand sanders and carpet cleaners.

Staffed by Greener and Cleaner volunteers, the hub will host events, workshops, talks and local meet-ups alongside DIY and repair cafes.

The Hub is based on the upper mall of The Glades and our opening hours are:

  • Monday – 10am-6pm
  • Tuesday – Closed
  • Wednesday – Closed
  • Thursday – 10am-6pm
  • Friday – 10am-6pm
  • Saturday – 10am-6pm
  • Sunday – 11am-5pm
The Hub is a friendly and welcoming space where you can come and learn some useful things or just enjoy looking at some of the amazing artwork being created by our volunteers. Do come in and say hello as we’d love to see you.

The Hub opened in The Glades in Bromley on 10th March. We are always looking for local volunteers who would be interested in helping us run the Hub. No prior experience is needed and full training will be given. If you’re interested in volunteering please fill in this form: Hub volunteer survey (
