Biographical Info

AHAG is a registered charity, governed by a board of trustees, who recognised the need for housing support and advice within the Aylesbury Vale. 

The ‘Hub’ drop in centre was initiated in 2009 as a pilot scheme to identify the need within Aylesbury. This was open for 3 hours per day for three days a week. Once the need had been clearly proven, they included the Hub as a key part of their strategy for engaging those people who are homeless or facing homelessness.

They can also offer:

  • one-to-one support by appointment
  • access to computers and phones to help those looking for housing, employment and education
  • emergency accommodation during the winter period

Work Exchange Street Aylesbury Buckinghamshire HP20 1UG Work Phone: 01296 745 100 Website: Aylesbury Waterside Theatre

Biographical Info

Opened in 2010, Aylesbury Waterside Theatre gives us the chance to experience West End productions, comedy, dance, children’s theatre and more, without leaving the town  The landmark building was modelled around the undulating Chiltern Hills, and it looks even more beautiful at night with the suspended lights shining out through the glass panels at the front of the building (although we’ll have to ask them about their energy use for all of those light bulbs…).  In the past they have run theatre groups for children, and the space can be used for meetings and local events.  The café is open during the day, and in the evenings on performance nights.

Biographical Info

Started by Richard and his then 14-year-old daughter in 2019 after noticing how much litter there was around Aylesbury.  They decided to take action and get out there with their litter pickers. They hold regular litter picks around the town for anyone to come along and join in, and lend out equipment for anyone who wants to go on their own litter pick.
