Love the Hornbeam? Want to keep it ticking?

Does having a coffee in the Cafe brighten your day?  Do you look forward to the chats that pop-up when you wander in to The Hornbeam on a weekend?  Are you enjoying an Italian class, or do you love the peace that surrounds our Lodge in Chingford?  Please help us keep this all going!

We can only do everything we do because of the support of amazing volunteers – and we need your energy and experience! Take a look and see if you can be part of these roles.  We look forward to hearing from you.

Walthamstow Garden Party volunteers
It’s nearly Walthamstow Garden Party time (15 & 16  July in Lloyd Park)! The Hornbeam and the Learning Lodge will have a stall to tell people about our work and if you are a fan of the Hornbeam and love chatting to people, we’d love to have you join us. Tell us about yourself here.

Join our Social Media Champions
Could you help us get the word out about the amazing work we do around the borough on social media? Whether your preferred ‘platform’ is Facebook, Twitter or Instagram we’d love to hear from you. We’d like to recruit a few Social Media Champs so we can share the sharing love. Do spread the word. Message Sue at the Hornbeam on Facebook or Twitter if you’re up for it!
