A wide range of exciting events are taking place in libraries this month. There are craft, fitness and Lego events for children, performances of Christmas Tales from Chicken Shed Theatre Trust and talks on the History and Residents of Willesden Jewish Cemetery, Icelandic Noir and how Hong Kongers have settled in new countries. There’s a cello performance and a Jack and the Beanstalk panto devised and performed by library staff.  

Creative Communities is a Barnet Council initiative, led by the Library Service to deliver a programme of events, activities and experiences for local residents in Barnet.

No news is bad news 

Independent news outlets like ours – reporting for the community without rich backers – are under threat of closure, turning British towns into news deserts. 

The audiences they serve know less, understand less, and can do less. 

In celebration of Indie News Week, Public Interest News Foundation's Indie News Fund will match fund all donations, including new annual supporter subscriptions for the month of June.

If our coverage has helped you understand our community a little bit better, please consider supporting us with a monthly, yearly or one-off donation.
