The Hub is a member-led, community Co-operative, run by and for the community. We receive no regular funding from the council or any other funders. This is a unique and special organisation that relies on the support and involvement of its members. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to become a member of the Hub Co-operative at £10 per annum, or you can choose to contribute a different amount, if you want to. We welcome everyone who supports our vision and values.
Payment for membership will be taken on the date you sign up. It will be automatically renewed yearly, unless we are notified otherwise. We accept either individual membership or membership for groups and organisations. If you work or volunteer for the Hub, you are eligible for free membership.
Being a member means that you will be part of the future success of Lordship Hub and that you will feel that it is your Hub in your community.
Benefits of becoming a member:
For individual and group membership you can complete the application form below. If you are applying on behalf of a group please complete the form with your name and your role in the group.

Our Vision & Values:
Supporting, promoting, enabling and inspiring park users’ health, well-being, enjoyment, environmental awareness and practice, social cohesion and community spirit, empowerment, co-operation and mutual aid by being responsive to the ideas, desires and needs of park users and the local community in all of its diversity. We want Lordship Recreation Ground to provide one of the best local park experiences in North London.
It is very important to Lordship Hub that it is run with co-operative ethics and values at its heart. This means the involvement of Hub users and the wider community as active members who guide its development, planning and day-to-day running. This is the key to ensuring we continue to provide a good, relevant and useful facility for our community. Our organisation is based on the following Co-operative values and ethics.
|Self Responsibility ‘everyone a leader’||Honesty|
|Equity||Caring for others|
