From 11am, there will be stalls to browse and free taster sessions laid on by some of the fantastic regular classes and activities based here eg family singing, hula hoops, yoga… there will also be street art graffiti boards for hire outside for creative young people over 8 years old to design – £7 each, noon to 4pm. And of course the cafe will be at your service as always!

At 2pm the Hub’s 2019 Annual General Meeting will start. Local people’s involvement in the Co-operative, whether as a member, user or volunteer, is crucial to the Hub’s continued success, and members’ views on how to improve things here will be very welcome. A summary of the Hub’s work over the last year is below. A full report will be available at the AGM.

Report from the Chair 2018/19

Another amazing year has zipped by, with the Hub busy serving the needs of park users and our local communities. Our presence has continued to grow, with more activities and events than ever before and use of our café, room hire and catering services increasing. Our profile, as a base for community initiative and empowerment, is spreading locally and across London. In fact our park is now getting national recognition – including features in the media and the Friends of Lordship Rec managing an important 2-year project to promote community empowerment in green spaces throughout the UK.

And all this despite very tight budgets. It might all look simple, but in fact there are always many challenges to grapple with as a community facility run by a co-operative of local people. A big thank you goes out to all our members, customers and users for their continued support throughout the year, and to our staff, volunteers and board members for all their hard work.

Looking forward we are pleased to announce that we have recently obtained a £53k grant to make internal improvements – to extend the kitchen and make it more efficient, create more storage in the rooms for hire, and build a new reception window into the office.

Tto crown it all we have just signed a new 25 year lease. This cements our excellent partnership with the very supportive Haringey Council and gives us the security we need to plan for the long term future of our building and park.
