Hello everyone!

CIL money to enhance Holly Lodge Community Centre
Holly Lodge CC has been granted £6,850 Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) monies by Camden Council. This will provide improved facilities for the Centre, including computers for homework club, improved access for older or less able residents, new planting for the community garden and replacement of worn out fittings such as dining chairs and tables. These will enable new activities, as well as established vital services for residents like the lunch club. Find out more here.

Holly Lodge’s success has inspired us to work even harder on our other CIL projects – see the full list here and do let us know if you would like to help with any of them.
