Community Coffee Mornings

Get out of the house and come and join our welcoming social group on Thursday mornings.  We have free tea, coffee and snacks and plenty of good conversation and laughs.  Everyone is welcome so give it a try!

We are planning different things each week including pottery painting, collage, card making, weaving, music, dancing, chair yoga, quizzes and Christmas decoration making during December.  Activities are decided by group members so if you have an interest to share then let us know!

Changes at ChART

Our new Project Manager, Kate Sing'ombe, has joined the ChART team.  Kate says "I'm really pleased to join ChART and work on the projects that residents feel are priorities in Chinbrook over the next 2 years.  There are some great ideas in the three priority areas: Health and Wellbeing, Youth and Community Investment and Routes out of Poverty.  With so much on hold with COVID the team will be working hard to get activities restarted.  I'm always keen to hear from residents about what they think we should be working on.  Please do get in touch or 020 8851 0174.
