May Newsletter

Welcome to the NW7Hub & Mill Hill Partnership Library May Newsletter. It has been a busy month for us with more collaboration, lots of news to share, new classes and birthdays coming up!


  • Sir Sydney Samuelson CBE, the first British Film Commissioner and one of Britain’s finest cinematographers joined us for an afternoon talk on his 80 years in the British film industry. We are honoured that he was able to join us and share his fascinating experience.
  • The Mill Hill Chill and Coffee, Cake & Crafting celebrated their 1st birthday’s this month with cake, beer, board games, crafting, badge making and décopatch.
  • Mill Hill Litter Pickers along with the NW7hub and Lawrence Street Allotments help keep Mill Hill litter free and clean. We now stock kit at the NW7hub that you can borrow to litter pick at any time that suits you so grab some friends and get stuck in.
  • New Classes including Hatha style Yoga every Tuesday from 6.30pm and Wednesdays from 12.30pm guaranteed to ease stiff joints and contribute to a general feeling of wellbeing. Taster sessions for 3- 8-year-olds for Mama Codes started on the 14th and  continue on 21st of May – a great playful way for kids to learn new computer skills.

Venue Hire & Bookings We still have the capacity to host many more special events and are always happy to hear from people who would like to hire any of our rooms for classes or private events. 

Partnerships with the NW7hub

At the NW7hub partnerships and collaboration with different organisations are key. Not only do they raise awareness on difficult issues, inspire inclusion and diversity, they are also heaps of fun!

We would like to recognise the commitment and tremendous efforts of our long term hirers who bring the community together at the Hub on a weekly basis.

Top Kangaroo, Ruth Silver, who leads Kangaroo Kids every Monday, hosted a very special bank holiday charity class for Spread a Smile in the Society Room. They raised over £200 which will provide much-needed entertainment and relief for poorly children in hospitals.  It was a lovely event with lots of animal puppets, singing, and dancing. 

Your support means so much and the money will help bring smiles to poorly children’s faces in hospitals 🙏🏻 thank you to NW7Hub for their help with the room. Thank you to Olivia & Sammy from the Spread A Smile team and their lovely children for their help and support at the class. You’re amazing!’ Ruth Silver, Director Kangaroo Kids.

Well done Ruth and we wish Spread a Smile all the best of luck for the future.

Superwoman Anita, who hosts the fantastically fun Caterpillar Kids Music every Tuesday is currently fundraising for Children’s Activities Week and Caudwell Charity who support children with autism and their families. Her challenge is ‘Watch me Fly’ which means she has to fit in as many songs about flying during her classes as possible – the skies the limit!

NW7hub Outreach

As ever, the vision for the NW7hub and MHPL new build is never too far from our minds and as we love getting out into the community we were delighted to join up with the Lawrence Street Allotments at their spring plant sale to raise awareness of our plans.

Many thanks to Kevin and the allotment team for making us feel so welcome and for all the delicious tea and cake in such beautiful surroundings.  We hope to see you back in August for the next plant sale.

Here’s a pic of Adam, one of our Trustees with the pop-up stall and all the details about NW7hub classes, events, MHPL opening hours and fundraising targets.

Our Trustees, volunteers, and staff continue to work tirelessly to see the long term vision through to completion and currently our immediate target is £8,000 which will raise enough money to push through with consultation and planning. 

It is through the generosity of our supporters that we can continue so if you are interested in donating and helping us reach our immediate targets, please drop us a line at host@nw7hub to find out more.
