Team

One team, one vision

The Team are all local people who want to develop a community hub that is a welcoming place to be and most of them love the building too (although some grumbles about how the building is beautiful but not always very practical!).  The team are a joy to work with and care about facilitating a varied diary of community and commercial partnerships.  They enjoy working alongside Lambeth’s Library staff and the Gym staff in the basement.
