Hi everyone. We hope this finds you well.

Welcome to the the ‘Hub Huddle’, keeping you connected to the Hub and Lordship Rec in these difficult and disconnected times.

We thought we would start with a bit of historical fun. A celebration of our unique Model Traffic Area. Pre-WW2 and pre-Pandemic, in 1938, the Minister of Transport, opens this fantastic new facility for the “kiddies” of Tottenham, the world’s first!. This sensational video is real, I promise!
