Our Journey

Children's Storytelling Festival
Children's Storytelling Festival joined Redbridge Hive5 days ago

The plan is to introduce children of all ages to literature and storytelling. The theme for the week is "bringing books alive" so the focus will be on storytelling and interactive sessions encouraging children and young people to explore their creative side and get to know more about the magic of literature. There will be a number of sessions throughout the week using various spaces in the Kenneth More Theatre in Ilford. This will also encourage children and their families to visit their local theatre, quite potentially for the first time, and see the wealth of entertainment it has on offer. The hope is to specfically target the local community by ensuring storytelling sessions from across the World exploring cultures and traditions of communites throughout the Borough.

Unity Walls Wanstead joined Redbridge Hive3 weeks ago

We want to bring artistic murals to Wanstead. Unity Walls will highlight the aspects of heritage and culture in Wanstead as well as truly repect and adhere to the conservation needs of the community. We are very well connected in the art world and would be able to introduce high calibre artists to the 'unity walls' in Wanstead. We would hope to gain permission and access to a select number of walls in and around Wanstead High Street that will be painted between 8th - 24th September 2017 that is due to tie in with this years Art Trail Wanstead, a community art event celebrating its 8th year.

Superfast Broadband for Snaresbrook
Superfast Broadband for Snaresbrook joined Redbridge Hive3 weeks ago

We’re seeking to raise the funds to provide homes affected at box "Wanstead/PCP31" with improved internet access and enable better broadband for the local village community. We would like to raise £100 per house affected to increase the option have superfast fibre optic broadband in your home. If we raise above our target then we would reimburse all donators accordingly. Around 5% of the UK isn’t covered in existing national fibre broadband rollout plans and part of Snaresbrook falls into that group. We’re not content with that, so want to work in partnership with BT to get superfast broadband to homes. We’ve set up the Superfast Snaresbrook effort to raise money to jointly fund the cost of a new fibre broadband cabinet that will be connected to the national fibre network. BT is funding a large chunk of the cost and we need to raise monies to cover the cost of the remainder.
