Hello everyone, I know it has been a while since we ran our crowdfunding campaign so I just wanted to give you an update... We've had a few delays this year but we are getting closer!!! Hackney Regeneration Team are kindly funding some building work in the space to create a flexible 2 studio space for multi-purpose activity, allowing the TRA and Hackney Showroom to run 2 different activities at the same time. Once that building work is done, then we can add the floors, blinds, storage and signage that we raised the funds for (thank you again for your contributions!). Fingers crossed it should all be complete early next year. Covid-19 has unfortunately halted a lot of our community plans for this year, but the TRA managed to launch a homework club and Hackney Showroom has launched a range of activities such as Futureheads and Disco Loco. More on their website: https://www.hackneyshowroom.com/ Source Partnership helped us to survey residents on Kings Crescent to find out what activities and events they would like to see happening once it is safe for us to do so. The results highlighted a community interest in engaging in activities, the most popular choices being fitness, food/cooking activities and language classes for adults, and a youth club for young people. Residents offered skills to support others including mentoring, CV writing, language skills and cooking. Full results here: https://kingscrescent.org/2020/11/26/community-survey-results/ The TRA are continuing to host meetings via Zoom to try to stay in touch with the community and continue to make plans ready for when we can meet together again in person. If anyone has any ideas for events and activities we can run in the new space next year or even virtually in the meantime please get in touch: email KingsCrescentN4@gmail.com If you are a resident of Kings Crescent and want to be kept informed of our plans please sign up to the TRA mailing list: http://eepurl.com/g-NGbD Happy holidays everyone and best wishes for a happy and healthy 2021!
