UPDATE 22.11.21 – THIS EVENT IS NOW ONLINE, PLEASE REGISTER ON EVENTBRITE FOR THE ZOOM LINK

Unfortunately, due to a cluster of Covid cases amongst the event organisers, we have taken the difficult decision to move the meeting to be online only. While we would prefer to meet in person, we feel this would be irresponsible.

To receive the zoom link, please continue to register with Eventbrite. The meeting will now take place between 7.30 – 9.00pm – please inform any friends and neighbours you know may attend.

We will reschedule a physical meeting as soon as possible.

Grainger are OUT! Its time to deliver the Wards Corner community plan!

This community meeting will be open to all community members, and food and drink will be provided during the celebration. Kids are welcome and the venue has a soft play area.

During the meetings there will be short workshops on the new Wards Corner Community Benefit Society which is currently in the process of being established, to democratically manage the restored Wards Corner building, and on the Wards Corner Community Plan from architectural co-designers Unit-38. Everyone will have the chance to share their views and help shape the design and governance aspects of the Plan, and the CBS.

Members of the Wards Corner Coalition, the Seven Sisters Tenants Association, Save Latin Village, and the West Green Road/Seven Sisters Development Trust will also be giving short speeches.

There will be Spanish translation during the event.

ACTUALIZACIÓN 22.11.21 – ESTE EVENTO SE VA PRESENTAR EN LÍNEA, POR FAVOR REGÍSTRESE EN EVENTBRITE PARA RECIBIR EL ENLACE DE ZOOM

Desafortunadamente, a causa de casos de Covid entre algunos de los organizadores del evento, hemos tomado la difícil decisión de tener la reunión en línea. Aunque preferimos reunirnos en persona, sentimos que esto sería irresponsable.

Para recibir el enlace de zoom, por favor regístrese en Eventbrite.

La reunión ahora va ser de 7:30 – 9pm – por favor avisen a los amigos o vecinos quienes crees que iban a asistir.

Una sesión donde nos podamos reunir en persona se va a reprogramar lo más pronto posible.

Esta reunión comunitaria estará abierta a todos los miembros de la comunidad, y se proporcionará comida y bebida durante la celebración. Los niños son bienvenidos y el lugar cuenta con una zona de juegos suave.

Durante las reuniones habrá talleres breves sobre la nueva Sociedad de Interés Común de la Comunidad de Wards Corner, que actualmente está en proceso de ser establecida, para administrar democráticamente el edificio restaurado de Wards Corner, y sobre el ‘Community Plan’ de Wards Corner de los co-diseñadores arquitectónicos Unit-38 . Todos tendrán la oportunidad de compartir sus puntos de vista y ayudar a dar forma a los aspectos de diseño y gobernanza del Plan y la CBS.

Los miembros de Wards Corner Coalition, Seven Sisters Tenants Association, Save Latin Village y West Green Road/Seven Sisters Development Trust también darán breves discursos.

Shaping the Wards Corner CBS: Community survey, workshop recordings, and more

Over the past month, we’ve been hosting workshops for key beneficiary communities on the new Wards Corner Community Benefit Society (CBS). These were lead by Dave Hollings from Co-operative and Mutual Solutions (CMS), who were allocated to the project through the Mayor of London/Coops UK Boosting Community Business programme as an independent support provider.

It’s been great to see a growing level of interest and excitement in the future of the Wards Corner site. In the coming month, we want to keep engaging with community members. Read below for some more information on the CBS workshops, and ways you can get involved in the coming weeks.

Survey on the Wards Corner CBS

In the coming weeks, Dave Hollings will be producing a report of recommendations for the Wards Corner CBS. This will be based on community responses to key questions which were asked in the workshops.

We want to get as many community members sharing their views on this as possible. We’ve put together a survey so that more people have a chance to be part of this process.

Help Shape the Wards Corner Community Benefit Society – Community Survey

This survey will end on the 7th November (midnight).

Upcoming dates

We will be hosting a community workshop on the 24th November in the evening. At this, we will hear Dave Hollings’ recommendations for the new CBS. There will also be a chance to engage with new design work, and celebrate recent achievements together.

We’ll be circulating more information about this soon, but for now, be sure to save the date!

Workshop recordings and slides

Below are the recordings from all four community workshops.
