Our Lewisham Walk Programme has been suspended based on the Walking for Health advice but again are investigating an alternative way to provide this service. beinspiredlewisham.org
Our community centre WCCC has remained open to ensure it supports those groups that are providing essential community services www.wccc.org.uk
We are pleased to say that we have now launched our Made in Greenwich online shop www.madeingreenwich.shop The website is new, so please bear with us as we fill the virtual shelves with stock over the coming days. We would be grateful if you could share the link so that we can all continue to support local artists, makers and entrepreneurs by ordering online. Meanwhile, our bricks and mortar shop is temporarily closed, but we hope to be open again as soon as we can.
