a sense of 'belonging' way beyond what you'd expect from a co-working office!

I started working in The Hive when I moved to Lancaster five years ago, hoping it would be a good way to meet people rather than working isolated at home. I couldn't have been more right! I have met and made friends with so many creative, interesting and wonderful people there and gained a sense of 'belonging' way beyond what you'd expect from a co-working office! - Claire Potter, Author & user of The Hive
