Coin Street Community Day

On Saturday 25 March, we opened the doors of our neighbourhood centre to the local community for a fun filled afternoon of free activities.

And what an afternoon it was! Over 400 visitors came along to enjoy a wide range of workshops, a vintage tea party, yoga and mindfulness sessions, beatboxing and more.

From Tai Chi on the roof terrace to chocolate tasting in the basement, every room in our neighbourhood centre was dedicated to community activities, many of which were ran by both partner and local organisations. It was truly inspiring to bear witness to the wealth of talent and skills from local people and we’d like to say a huge thank you to those who provided their services; our fantastic partners, workshop leaders, volunteers, sponsors and funders. In these uncertain times, working together and sharing resources is more important than ever.

It was great to see so many of you enjoying yourselves, trying something new and reconnecting with old friends. We will prioritise bringing people together to improve community cohesion and reach out to the most vulnerable groups in North Southwark and Waterloo, offering high quality support where possible. We’re looking forward to hosting similar events in the future, so stay tuned.
