Desk space available for all sectors at state-of-the-art digital hub

Strawberry Fields Digital Hub in Chorley is now offering its state-of-the-art desk space facilities to all business sectors to support businesses and entrepreneurs through COVID-19.

The £8.4 million Hub, part funded by the European Regional Development Fund, opened in October 2019 providing the opportunity for start-ups and SMEs in the digital and creative sectors to work alongside each other in an innovative, supporting and vibrant environment.

Now the doors are open to all sectors in a move which will bring accommodation and location options to businesses which may have been struggling with the impacts of the coronavirus.

Desk space is available from £150p/m* and includes 24-hour access to your own hot desk or pod in a collaborative working environment, with on-site business support and access to communal spaces.

What’s included:

  • Flexible rental with a 1-month notice period
  • Advice and support for your business growth
  • Access to free car parking and reception services
  • Secure locker provided and allocated desk/pod
  • Access to meeting and training rooms and event space**
  • Day and weekly rates are also available at just £12 per day and £50 per week.

The 40,000sq ft office space includes features such as hot desks, micro pods, flexible desks and traditional office suites. There are also meeting and training rooms as well as workshop facilities, a networking zone and free breakout areas.

The hub also has free parking, 24-hour access and onsite security.

Councillor Alistair Bradley, Leader of Chorley Council said, “I’m delighted to announce that, through negotiations with the European Regional Development Fund representatives, we are now able to open up our state-of-the-art facility to all business sectors, not just digital and creative.

“We’re seeing the impacts of COVID-19 across all of our community and we know many companies have been seeking alternative ways to conduct their business to cope with the changes.

“The Strawberry Fields Digital Hub offers flexible working space in a vibrant and innovative setting with opportunities for key networking and collaboration. Not only that, we’re in a great spot for location wise, allowing for an excellent base for your businesses without having to travel into the major cities daily.

“If you’re weighing up your location or accommodation options, I strongly suggest you get in touch to see what we can offer you.”

The Hub opened its doors in October 2019 and has already reached 68% occupancy on its fixed office space, plus many regular smaller businesses using the hot desk areas.
