£1 million for N2


Promoting a thriving and caring community

The Grange Estate and neighbouring areas in East Finchley, including the Font Hills and Thomas More estates, have been awarded a lottery grant of £1 million through Local Trust's Big Local initiative.


This is an exciting and unique opportunity for residents of N2 to make a massive and lasting positive difference to our communities and make an even better neighbourhood!


People who live, work and volunteer in the area are invited to get involved. There are plenty of ways of participating: join the mailing list, volunteer, take part in some of the events, or simply send a thought in an email.
