Hive Coworking: Whitstable

“natural collaborators”

Hive Co-Working

Established at Whitstable Umbrella Community Centre since 2018, Hive is a creative workspace and natural incubator for freelancers, small business owners and home-workers. We are situated in the heart of Whitstable within the town’s community centre, and when you join as a member you become part of our working community. Run by Jo and Caroline, Hive is a fully accessible, welcoming and inclusive space.  Hive is also a Covid secure space; all members work socially distanced from one another, there is a one-way system in operation and member guidelines in place to ensure everyone’s continued safety.

Go forth and enjoy ☀️🌊💛 If you're feeling a bit more Road To Nowhere we will happily take short term bookings for ad hoc and membership packages. 
Those looking to escape houses once tranquil during daytime hours and now suddenly filled with ice cream splodges & sand trails are more than welcome to come and take sanctuary with us over the school holidays.

Pack up your office from your kitchen table, stick it in a bag and leave the dishes behind ... With paperwork becoming digital & photos of loved ones on our phones we don't need to set up permanent office spaces anymore.

Here at Hive we've got the coffee & the office plants sorted. Just bring yourself & your work bag and you're set to go in our co-working space ☕

We've got fast business Wi-Fi, a printer & a fridge for your lunch. There's also lockers if you need to store extra paperwork overnight.

Where do people always hang out at parties? 
The kitchen in Hive serves much the same purpose. When we've all been head down for a couple of hours the sound of the kettle being filled up is often a good excuse to stop for a chat.

We can all keep churning along but know that a quick break every now and again does our brains the world of good. 
Working in a coworking space allows the chance to down tools and have a breather alongside others. Being connected with others is great for work related mental health and allows for natural collaboration.

Apologies for another beach photo but it turns out you can pop in and out of the office and swim in the sea all year round and still (just about!) run a business or two 🙌 😊

Its not something many coworking spaces can boast about, but we can offer the beach & sea dipping potentials just around the corner. Perfect for shaking off laptop blues 🌊

All aboard the membership ⛵

Our lovely coworking space Hive has been steadily getting busier during the past 6 months. 
Whilst this is great news, we aren't a huge ship and because community, connections and collaboration are so important to us we have taken the decision to limit the number of ad hoc memberships we take on currently.

We have space for a few more occasional or dedicated packages and currently welcome new potential members who want to work in our space 2-5 days a week.

Our occasional package covers 2 days or 4 half days a week and is just £7.50 per day session. With Wi-Fi, kitchen space, free hot drinks, locker storage and a small meeting space included we think it's fantastic value 🙌

Email us on <a or pop your head in to find out more or have a complimentary try out. . . . . #coworkingwhitstable #coworkingkent #membershippackage #flexidesk #businesscommunity #whitstablefreelancers #bemoreconnected #beinthehive">
