Wigmore community hub
Medway Council has invested £250,000 to transform the library at Wigmore
into a community hub.
The new hub, in Fairview Avenue, now has a modern fit-for-purpose library,
a larger children’s area and a meeting room.
In our community hubs you can get access to a range of facilities and services.
In addition to library services, community hubs are available for a variety of enquiries about council and partner services, including making payments, purchasing parking vouchers, and access to information and support.
