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.

Our little Hive kitchen is buzzing (sorry) with activity today as some more of our members return from holidaying / parenting 🤹🏽

This space is the hub of the Hive, not just where teas and coffees are made, but where connections are built and friendships cultivated. We’re so pleased to see everyone back — and busy! 🐝 

Our books are open for autumn and we’re accepting new members. Get in touch by emailing <a to learn more about our flexible membership options 👆">

🐝 3 reasons why Hive is the place to be 🐝

Tired of your bedroom / kitchen / shed? Our lovely space is just a stone’s throw from the beach and the high street. What’s more, we offer… 

1. Flexible memberships ✔️ 
We have a number of options available to suit everyone and there’s no contract – so you can freeze or cancel at any time. 

2. Collaboration opportunities ✔️
If you’re a social wasp, our space is ideal for work opportunities and we have a number of members who already collaborate on projects. Equally, if you’re a busy bee who likes to crack on and fly solo, that’s also okay. 

3. Free tea, coffee, WiFi, printing (and chat) ✔️
Kindness (and our hot beverages) cost nothing. Use our colour printer and take advantage of our cosy meeting room. 

Talk to us today about options, fire us an email at <a">

At Hive, we’re all about community and collaboration. There’s no better example of this than @whitstablewhistler. Why? 

🐝 It’s edited by super talented Hive member @thedivinehammer. 
🐝 It often features pieces written by members @theeditorrebecca and @fayschopen.
🐝 It features an ad for our lovely space - starring member @planetbsocial - and shot by member @clarerandellphotography. 

The second issue is out now and you can pick it up at our neighbour’s @theumbrellacafe.
