‘HIVE at meahouse’ is an exciting initiative from
The MEA Trust and provides no-fuss, flexible,
affordable office space for small charities, industrial
and provident societies, and community interest
HIVE hot desk availability

units, and smaller organisations need easily available office space
from which they can grow and expand. Until now, this facility has not
been available for the voluntary sector.
