January Newsletter

January has been a busy month at the NW7Hub & Mill Hill Partnership Library: we’ve made a few changes to the layout of the space with the aim of optimising our cafe facilities giving us even more room to work and play; we’ve said farewell to a few long term volunteers who leave us with new skills and experience for paid work, and welcomed two Assistant Managers, Manisha and Alice, who are keen to develop our programme of events that are informative and fun for all. 

We are delighted to see familiar faces back this year for our regular events and are constantly reminded of how valuable the space is for people to meet and share time together.

  • Only a few days left to say goodbye to our heritage mural – The mural painted in 1989 currently hanging in the Society Room has been part of the long history of the Library but as Mill Hill goes through a process of rejuvenation we look forward to the unveiling of a new mural made by pupils at Copthall School.  Thursday 7th February at 3:30pm is the grand unveiling to be attended by The Worshipful Mayor of Barnet, Cllr Reuben Thompstone.

Happy New Year

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
