Alas, the only welcome we can extend to you is online until Monday 12th April, when Lockdown 3 eases enough to allow limited hire of the Community Centre to take place. We will be more fully open from Monday 17th May, in line with the latest Government guidelines. Current coronavirus guidance can be found here.

By the time lockdown ends, Leonard Lauk will be comfortably in post as our new Community Centre Manager. We hope you can make him welcome! From me (Mike) – a massive thank you to everyone who has supported the community centre since pre-pandemic times, including our staff, volunteers, donors, partners and local residents.

For information on some local lockdown support, including how to order emergency food parcels or meals on wheels, we’ve pulled together a little detail for you at: https://hollylodgecc.co.uk/lockdown/

We’re still accepting donations of non-perishable foods, toiletries, etc for the local food bank run by Highgate Newtown. These can be left 24/7, in the repurposed yellow grit box outside our main entrance at 30 Makepeace Avenue.

If you can help us stay afloat with a financial donation, we won’t say no! (We’ll say ‘Thank you very much’!)
