Bambinhos capoeira – led by local residents Ebony & Jonny Bamber – has been running capoeira classes at the Hub for four years. They have now added a new adult class to their regular classes for children aged 5+.
Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art/dance form that combines movement, music and song. It is a great way for all ages to improve their fitness and develop strength, flexibility and musicality in a supported, relaxed and fun environment.
Both Ebony and Jonny have 17 years experience in capoeira and are qualified teachers (professors) with the Mojuba group of Mestre Poncianinho. They have three children.
Classes are on Mondays:
Kids: 5-6pm (£5 advance fees/£7.50 drop-in)

Over 50 children enjoyed the Hub’s Halloween activities on Saturday 28th October.
We all made spookily decorated paper lanterns and then enjoyed a pinata. Then, when it was dark enough we all went for a lantern-lit walk around the dark rec and ended up with story with Mr Squash inside the ring of oaks at the top of the hill.
A great time was had by all!
The Hub hosted a number of events in October for Black History Month, including a children’s workshop and a variety of talks.
Lots of children took park in our special creative workshop for Black History Month at the Hub. They worked with children’s author Kandace Chimbiri on visual ideas based on the history of the Afro-Comb. The silence of total concentration over the 2 hour workshop was amazing!
Going with the Flo
Local gardeners came to hear Flo Headlam, one of the presenters on TV’s Gardener’s World talk about herself and her work. After the talk we took her for a walk around our beautiful park and harmony gardens.
Sheba Montserrat, Dancer, Writer and Stand-up Comedian did a fascinating and enjoyable presentation on the History of Caribbean Carnival as an act of Rebellion and Liberation as part of the Hub’s Black History events on Sunday 29th October.
We ended the talk by all getting to our feet to feel for ourselves the liberation of the dance moves of Carnival!
Young, gifted and black
An inspiring young black teacher from South London, Tumaini Jospeh, came to talk at the Hub, as part of our Black History events. He spoke about the Criminal Justice System as it relates to young black men.
He gave us a look behind the statistics at the reality of people lives: what motivates people and how racism persists in Britain and impacts on black youth. He pointed to education as a key aspect in changing peoples lives and attitudes.
22 people enjoyed a vegetarian feast at the Hub on Saturday, 21st October to celebrate all the great things that have been achieved at the Hub and in the Park this year and also to give thought to nature and the land and all it provides.
Everyone enjoyed some great music and singing by local musicians and £180 was raised for the Hub.
Thanks to all that took part!
