One year on – tell us your Hive highlights

    • 10th July 2013

    Thursday 11th June is the one year anniversary of the official opening of The Hive and to mark the occasion we will be celebrating our successes so far. Come along on the day when we will be giving out balloons and stickers and gathering people’s memories of the past year.

    On 11th June 2012 we were honoured to have the Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh visit to tour The Hive and to meet members of staff, students and the public, after which they unveiled a commemorative plaque that now hangs near the entrance of the building. On the day many local community groups, schools and students got involved in the wide range of activities that were planned throughout the building, which were designed to reflect the extent of the learning and leisure opportunities the services within The Hive provide.

    To mark the anniversary of the official opening we would like to gather people’s memories and highlights of the opening day and of The Hive over the past year.

    Were you here on the day of the Queen’s visit? Were you involved in any of the activities that took place that day? Has The Hive influenced you in any way since it opened? What highlights have there been for you since The Hive opened?

    Visit The Hive on Thursday and you will be able to write down your memories ready for staff to collect. Alternatively, if you can’t make it on the day you can submit your comments on this blog or through our other social media accounts:

    Twitter: @ExploreThePast or @TheHiveWorcs  

    If you’re tweeting us remember to use the hashtag #HiveMemories so we can easily track all of your comments.

    All of the memories we gather on the day will be used to build a picture of our first year at The Hive. We will then retain these as a permanent archive to look back on for years to come.
