Run by the community, for the community

Holly Lodge Community Centre (HLCC) offers a wide range of activities in a friendly, relaxed environment. We also offer our hall for hire.


Holly Lodge Community Centre is now certified as being Covid-secure. This means that we comply with Government guidance on managing the risk of coronavirus. As a result, we are open for bookings, and our popular Monday lunch clubs will resume on MONDAY 5TH OCTOBER 2020. A huge thank you goes to all the local volunteers, residents, and donors who have supported us, as well as each other, through these uniquely challenging times.

PLEASE NOTE: The community centre will be closed for 2 of the next 4 weeks to enable our staff and volunteers to take a well earned breather, having worked all the way through the Covid-19 pandemic before now. Holly Lodge Community Centre will be closed on the following weekdays: MON 31 AUG – FRI 4 SEPT inclusive and MON 21 – FRI 25 SEPT inclusive.

Holly Lodge Community Centre is a central donation point for non-perishable food and other essential items (toiletries, hand sanitisers, loo rolls etc.)

These are delivered to Highgate Newtown’s food bank and made up into the food parcels distributed to Holly Lodge Estate and the wider Highgate area. The bright yellow bin is outside the Centre, at 30 Makepeace Avenue N6 6HL.

Our income from lunch clubs, music and art lessons, fitness classes and more is now zero. When this crisis is over, we will need to re-establish the services so valued by our community. Join us in helping Holly Lodge Community Centre!

Please donate on our Virgin Moneygiving page.

Every block of flats (including the sheltered housing properties) and street on Holly Lodge Estate has at least one designated volunteer (a ‘Block Rep’ or ‘Street Supporter’) to check on and help vulnerable residents. This could be with their shopping, prescriptions, or by providing a listening ear.

Holly Lodge Community Centre acts as a hub for these volunteers, providing them with the support and resources they need to help others.
