Stay Home, Stay Safe, Stay Connected

As I write this, we’re now in our forth week of ‘Lockdown’. We have all been asked to stay at home and only go out for essentials such as food, medication and exercise. This is indeed a trying time for us all. Our regular face to face meetings, classes and workshops in our community space have ground to a halt. This has not stopped us continuing our work in the community.

We believe we must find the positive where we can and today has been a lovely day. The sun was shining as we started the day with a wonderful Meditation session. Our first week we had four participants, this morning there was a full house as 13 of us showed up to take part in the online session via Zoom. Big thanks to Sis Aamasade for leading the meditation.

Keeping the Connection

Today the Tell It Family connected and we will keep this connection going.

I know some people are finding things hard and here at Tell It we want to be of service where we can. If you need help with anything from food supplies and paperwork to toys and activities for all the family, GET IN TOUCH NOW.

I’ll be hosting an online Drop-In session on Mondays between 2 -4pm. Please get in touch if you would like the link to join us on Mondays @ the online Drop-In or if you would like to join us for our Well Being Wednesdays online Meditation sessions at 11.30am. Stay safe & well.

Well Being Wednesdays

What a difference a year makes!

In June 2018 we moved into our new home @472 Harrow Road, W9 3RU in North Westminster. We have had a roller-coaster of a year once we secured the lease after months of negotiation, paperwork and preparation. In the last year: we cleaned, repaired and painted; we sourced new, old and donated furniture; we promoted and marketed and leafleted our new address; we  worked in the garden and more…

NEW for 2019

Following feedback from our service users, this year we added more activities to our service. In addition to the staples, from our new community hub we ran the following activities:

  • Introduction to Yoga
  • Relaxation, Mindfulness and Meditation
  • Sewing Workshops: Beginners, Repairs and Make your own…
  • Monthly well being walks

We were so excited and  pleased to be nominated and shortlisted for the #MyWestminster Community Awards to culminate with our one year anniversary. And truly humbled to win the category: Voluntary Contribution to the Community. Here’s to the coming year! See Westminster’s photo album here:
