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:

#Tesco Bags of Help

In 2018, we entered the Tesco Bags of help Community Competition. We wanted to transform a small concrete wasteland into a lovely garden space where we could grow flowers and herbs.  Just over one year ago, we were pleased to discover WE WON.

 

Here’s a slideshow of our garden journey to date.

Goodbye Summer

We are pleased to say that we had a fantastic day out at Southend beach on Friday 11th August. The sun shone as families enjoyed the sand and the sea and of course the fish and chips.

This was our 6th annual day out of London and in spite of being of no fixed abode, we managed to fill a 57 seater coach with ease, with a waiting list.

Some of the feedback below:
