Welcome to our March Newsletter. It’s been another bumper month: our calendar is filling up with new classes; our staff and volunteers are getting to grips with the new Library management system and we are planning our next big charity event, the NW7hub’s Spring Arts & Crafts Fair on 23rd & 24th March.
- Local artists, designers, crafters, and makers are invited to showcase their handmade products at our Spring Arts & Crafts Fair over the weekend of the 23rd and 24th of March. We have a number of fantastic workshops lined up for the Fair so scroll down and find out more about how you can get involved.
- The Young Barnet Foundation joined us for a morning of presentations and networking that brought different community leaders and their enterprises together. These diverse organisations work to support different groups of society, building resilience by providing safe and creative spaces so that our community can thrive, develop key skills, build meaningful relationships and nurture their ambitions away from difficult environments.
- The New Mural was unveiled on 7th of February. Gifted by the talented Year 8-11 pupils of Copthall School it has provided the Society Room with an injection of colour, depicting the vibrant and diverse community of Mill Hill.
New Classes & Party Bookings – Our calendar is steadily filling up with new bookings which is great news; not only does it inspire community cohesiveness it also demonstrates the entrepreneurial spirit of the local area. We still have the capacity to host many more special events and are always excited to hear from people who would like to hire any of our rooms for classes or private events. We can accommodate adult and children’s parties, classes, social clubs and much more Please do get in touch if you have any requirements.
New Mural in the Society Room
On 7th of February, the NW7hub welcomed Year 8-11 Art students from Copthall school, their teachers and friends for the unveiling of the fabulously bright and vibrant new mural. The students were presented with a Certification of Thanks by Cllr Lisa Rutter who gave us her take on the afternoon.
“I attended on behalf of the Mayor on 7th February to unveil this Mural made by Copthall students and also congratulated and presented some certificates to the students. The mural was commissioned by the NW7hub – a community centre and café in the Library Building and the brief was to reflect the local area and its community.
The project was started with 36 talented Copthall School Art students from Years 8-11 in July 2018 and was completed during a weekly lunchtime club up until Christmas 2018.
The mural is divided into 6 large panels and mixed year groups of six students painted each panel. The finished mural is a fantastic vibrant piece of work and a great showcase of Copthall’s student’s creativity which really does reflect the local community as well as the students involved. The staff at the NW7hub are delighted with their finished Artwork and say it has really lifted the feeling of the room”
A HUGE THANKS goes to the students and teachers for their dedication and creativity and all of us at the NW7hub wish you the best of luck for your future projects.
