Latest News

At the moment, our latest news – which concerns our response to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak – can be found on the homepage.

This page will be populated with content as the Community Centre reopens to our normal services and activities.

In the meantime, here’s a few snippets on what’s been going on behind the scenes in the past few months…

  • In February 2020, we were joined by Mike Towers in his new role as Community Centre Manager. Mike’s part-time post is funded for 3 years by the National Lottery Community Fund.
  • In March, the Community Centre had a defibrillator fitted to the front of our building – one of three defibrillators on Holly Lodge Estate. (The other two can be found inside Tesco Express on Swains Lane, and outside the Holly Lodge Estate offices on Holly Lodge Gardens). Once lockdown restrictions are sufficiently eased, we intend to offer training in the use of the defibrillator to the local community.
  • Over Easter, we distributed 60+ Lindt Easter eggs to children of all ages on the estate, which had been donated to us via Highgate Newtown Community Centre.
  • In late March / early April, we made our first tentative steps into the world of social media. As you will see at the bottom of this page, Holly Lodge Community Centre can now be found on Facebook and Twitter. Do give us a ‘like’ at your leisure, or a ‘retweet’ sometime!
