Neighbourhood Network : new venue & programme starting 9th January

A message from Neighbourhood Network SW17: 
Neighbourhood Wednesdays are changing!

Next meeting 10.45am – 12.00 noon Wednesday 9th January
 It’s 2019 – may the New Year bring peace, happiness and joy to you all.

We’re making a few changes to our Neighbourhood Wednesdays. We have come to the conclusion that we need to make our Neighbourhood Wednesdays more inclusive and more frequent. So, this is a shout out to a-n-y-o-n-e who lives in SW12, SW17 or nearby who wants to get to know a few more local residents to join us for our fortnightly drop-in at Richard’s Kitchen, 16A Tooting Bec Road, SW17 8BD starting Wednesday 9th January. Not only is Richard’s Kitchen very close to Tooting Bec tube station, it’s also well served by the following buses – 249, 319, 219, 155 and 355. The nearest stops are Tooting Bec station or St Anselm’s Church. If you’re driving, parking bays are available in the local sidestreets – Wandsworth CPZ D3 Subzones – Tooting Bec

You may be a homeworker, a stay-at-home parent, a pensioner or a carer, newly retired or just someone who has some time on a Wednesday morning to stop by for a chat over a tea or coffee between 1045 and 1200.  It doesn’t matter who you are or what you do – you’re all welcome. Those who know Richard’s Kitchen will know that space is a little limited so please do not bring non-collapsible pushchairs. Also, there is a step up from the pavement making it unsuitable for wheelchair users who cannot manage this step. These Wednesdays have also been designed to coincide with the Friends of Tooting Common Litter Pick that usually runs from 1130, so if you’re on the way to join the Litter Pick, please do drop in and say hi.
