10 local residents attended a workshop on 9th February at the Hexagon offices. Caroline Hughes came along from Community Connections Lewisham to talk to people about what their organisation can offer to people within the London Borough of Lewisham. This included anything from volunteering, gardening and computer courses as well as a befriending service. A light lunch was included and people took the opportunity to chat and get to know their fellow Hexagon residents.
Anyone can access these services if they live in Lewisham and are encouraged to call the Community Connections helpline on 0330 058 3464 or visit their website
You will be surprised to know what is available in your borough.
