"Money A+E is coming to East Finchley...This award winning social enterprise provides money advice & educational services. Grange Big Local is funding a workshop on Church Lane - open to all who would like support with any money issues - including debt, budgeting and saving."



Our community cooking classes at St Mary's Church Hall are paused for now - please join our mailing list to keep updated.


Feedback from one participant:

"There is a warm, supportive atmosphere at the sessions. There is always someone to lend a hand and offer some friendly advice or suggestions. These Fridays have something that stands out from other cookery classes.  Everyone that attends the group leaves learning something new and sharing a unique experience."  Find out more about this great course in this piece by participant Cecilia.
