Sophia Acton from OneStoneGrove Community Trust in partnership with Our Yard at Clitterhouse Farm contacted us to introduce the North West London Social Action Hub which will be offering accredited Community Organising Training to local residents.
Thanks to generous funding, the training is being offered at a commitment fee of £10 for local residents (but that can be waived if necessary). The training will introduce residents to the skills they need to empower change within their communities, building upon what already exists and co-operating with others.
“Our mission is to build and support a resilient and sustainable community of active citizens who take action around their common concerns and overcome social injustice.”
Clitterhouse Farm’s garden will be closed from this Saturday until January 9th. The Grub Club – which tackles food waste and food poverty by turning surplus into delicious meals on a “pay as you feel” basis – will be returning also on the 9th. Help tackle environmental waste by bringing your tupperware along.
We do also want to thank
Barnet’s parks and street cleaning team for keeping our streets and playing fields free of litter.
Barnet Police and the Golders Green & Childs Hill Safer Neighbourhood teams for working hard to keep us safe.
Our councillors and council officers for their ongoing support in local matters and particularly with our Dump Donoghue campaign.
You can contact our police Safer Neighbourhood Teams for non-urgent matters:
We would like to thank the Clitterhouse Farm team and all the volunteers involved for its amazingly beautiful garden! It has been the highlight for many during our daily walks. If you have not seen it, it’s worth taking a stroll.
This garden would love some watering and weeding. If you’d be happy to help for a bit on your daily outing, please contact Patrick (firstname.lastname@example.org) who will happily guide you on how to do this safely.
We are so sorry to report the recent death of our friend and neighbour, Mary Bennett, a long-term resident of the Golders Green Estate and for many years an ardent supporter of GGERA and the Memories Group.
We will treasure the many memories she leaves behind. Her funeral is on Monday 18 March at 1:00 pm at All Saints Church in Cricklewood Lane (behind the school).
