Supporting The Bridge E10

                                       Up Your Street

Last spring Up Your Street delivered weekly sessions for seniors at Lea bridge Road Library in a project initiated by The Mill E17. Our popular free sessions included  meditation with Mary Fahey, “Spitalfields My Home” with Jan Dewhurst, African stories with Marcella Kaikai, Hedgeherbs with Rasheeqa, local social history with David Boote  and an illustrated talk with Norman Minter. Other speakers were waiting in the wings.  Participants fired by those sessions went on to deliver  keep- fit classes and drawing sessions.

Now The Bridge is launched, a neighbourhood enterprise for the neighbours supported by LBWF. and modelled on and shaped by The Mill in E17 . The Big Society got bigger.
