What a year 2018 has been for the NW7hub. We not only celebrated a year of running the library in April but also we ran some great children’s shows – Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, The Elf and the Shoemaker, our first winter pantomime and the stand-up Comedy nights in the Summer.
All of this proves the Hub is a viable and vital community resource that can host a variety of events and arts.
This year we saw the building of the Studio space which was donated by Adam Morley and has created many opportunities for new hires and multiple uses of the Library space.
The Hub has delivered on its promise and continues to grow to serve the community.
For instance, over 150 local children took part in the summer reading challenge. We have run lots of fabulous classes for children: Dance, performing arts, soft play, music and movement, art classes, yoga and Zumbini.
We have run lots of fabulous classes for adults too: Meditation, Art, Pilates – keep your eyes open for more in the New Year.
We established some lovely monthly social events: Coffee Cake and Crafting, the ever popular Mill Hill Chill, and regular Art fairs.
Regular meetings for the Mill Hill Preservation Society, the Neighbourhood Forum and the Residents Association have been held at the Hub.
Two of our Volunteers have moved into paid employment as a direct result of working at the hub and we have a thriving over 50s group. Our volunteers are at the heart of what we do at the NW7hub. We wish to thank every one of them for their time, it is very much appreciated.
We can’t wait to see what 2019 brings for the NW7hub and our vision of establishing a new thriving community hub at the Daws Lane as the site comes a little closer to fruition with the local referendum due in 2019. We will continue to be at the heart of our community, accessible and open to all.
Happy New Year
The NW7hub Trustees
