We have been working hard behind the scenes, undertaking a thorough deep clean, completing risk assessment in accordance with government guidelines. There are new safety measures, such sanitizer stations and a one-way system and our hall capacities have dramatically reduced. All to ensure that everyone can maintain the appropriate social distance.  We have also expected a lot from our hirers; each has had to prepare their own risk assessment explaining how they will reorganise their groups and what measures they have put in place in case of any issues, then each groups documentation had to be approved by our board. All this was done with your safety in mind, whilst allowing everyone to experience a friendly, welcoming environment in our centre.

Over the next few weeks, subject to guidelines at the time, more groups will be returning filling our halls again with plenty of activities for you to enjoy.

If you are intending to join a group, please note that the government has outlined that the wearing of face masks is compulsory within enclosed public buildings, although there are exceptions in certain circumstances and you should liaise with your class organiser directly to see how the group will run.

We’re working hard to get the Community Centre ready to open by giving it a deep clean and making it COVID-19 safe.

The office remains closed, however, if you are interested in using our halls in the upcoming months you can now contact us by email at

Small, independent and local business are one of the things that makes Islington such a great place to live but shops, bars, restaurants and other businesses have been hit hard by the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19).

To help support them Islington has created a directory that lists businesses that are still operating in the borough. These businesses are operating safely and have been checked by Islington Council’s Environmental Health or Trading Standards teams. This may mean they are operating a takeaway-only service, delivering supplies to drop at your door, or operating a service online, or at a safe distance.

  • Once you’ve opened the Directory, click ‘Show Layers’ on the left hand menu, then ‘COVID-19 Support – Shop Local’
  • You can then search by ticking a category of business, which will display in the main body of the map.

If you need help do contact HNCC.

We’re all in this together!
