Interesting article on Hammersmith Locals

Hammersmith Locals

My article, thanks to Ian at The Tool Chest

Hammersmith Locals Magazine Autumn Edition

The magazine is now out and if you haven't had one drop through your letterbox, copies are available here at the centre. In addition to yours truly's article(Brad) there is an article, funny enough, right beside mine by Caroline Macmillan a local historian who will be guest speaker at our Annual General Meeting on the 11th November 2015.
Oh yes, as I forgot to mention, when you do pop into the centre, do buy a book or two of raffle tickets. The tickets our one of the major fund raisers we have for the centre and helps us to survive unlike some other centres which have regrettably closed in the last few months.

Pasted Graphic 23
The area served by the GNC lies between Goldhawk Road and King Street. Our western boundary is formed by Paddenswick Road and Ravenscourt Road, and Richford Street, Grove Mews and Hammersmith Grove form our eastern boundary.

Background

The Centre provides a social centre for local people, a drop-in support service, premises for a wide variety of local groups and practitioners. We have no political affiliation.

Our Story
The Grove Neighbourhood Council was set up at a house Overstone Road in 1973 as part of a project to set up local neighbourhood councils in urban areas.

The neighbourhood council's area of operation was the old Grove ward – hence our name. The ward boundaries were revised a few years ago, but the area we serve is still the old Grove ward area.

Our next home was a prefab building in Bradmore Park Road, and this became the Grove Neighbourhood Centre (GNC). In 1982 the prefab was demolished and replaced by a one-storey purpose-built community centre. In the same year the Grove Neighbourhood Centre Ltd was registered as a company limited by guarantee. In 1983 the Grove Neighbourhood Centre was registered as a charity.

In 1994 a grant from Hammersmith & Fulham Council enabled us to add a second storey to our building, and provide premises for an increased number and range of activities. Our building won the Hammersmith Society's annual Environment Award in 1995, for local buildings displaying imaginative design.

Committee

The formal name of the management committee is the Grove Neighbourhood Council. The Committee meets 5 times a year on the second Wednesday of January, March, May, July and September with our annual AGM falling on the second Wednesday in November. It receives reports from the staff and from the Treasurer.

The management committee can have a maximum of 20 members. Ideally they must live in the area served by the GNC however up to four members of the committee may be coopted who live outside this area but who are active at the GNC.

Nominations of people who would like to serve on the committee are received every two years. If there are more nominations than the maximum number of committee members, an election is held. The electors are the residents of the area.

If there are vacancies on the committee, new members can be coopted at any time.

Every year, the committee elects its Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary and Treasurer.

At the moment we have vacancies and would welcome new members. If you would like to join us, contact the GNC for further information. Attending a monthly committee meeting as an observer is a helpful way of getting an idea of the committee's work.

Alcoholics Anonymous

Pasted Graphic 9
Meetings:

Thursdays: 8:15am–9:15am



What is AA? An Introduction

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.

AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organisation or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

Gamblers Anonymous

Pasted Graphic 8
Meetings:

Wednesdays: 8pm- 9.30pm (20:00-21:30)



Gamblers Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who have joined together to do something about their own gambling problem and to help other compulsive gamblers do the same.

Narcotics Anonymous

Pasted Graphic 7

Meetings Fridays: 7:30–9pm (19:30-21:00)

Narcotics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem. We meet regularly to help and support each other to stay abstinent from all mind altering chemicals. Addiction can be viewed by society in a very stereotypical way; the person sitting begging, the person on a park bench drinking or the person in an alley way using drug paraphernalia. However, addiction is a disease that can happen to anyone. It affects people of all ages, race, sexual identity and religion. Addiction does not discriminate. There are various reasons why addicts use drugs. Some of us enjoyed them, while some of us used to suppress our feelings. Some of us became addicted to prescribed medication or some of us used, initially, due to peer pressure and then could not stop. Addiction is a progressive disease and if left untreated can lead to jails, institutions or death. Our lives had become unmanageable due to our drug use. Narcotics Anonymous use the 12 steps of recovery to help us overcome our disease. Whilst we use these as an integral part of our daily lives, meetings remain paramount. One addict helping another is without parallel, this fellowship gives us hope. We learn to experience feelings, and rather than act on them, we share them with other addicts and we learn to work through our problems. In Narcotics Anonymous we learn that we are able to experiience our lives without the need to drink alcohol or use drugs. Our meetings are our lifeline, they help us stay clean and sober, connect to others and most importantly help someone who is new or struggling.

This group runs three mornings a week during term-time. It is a drop-in group available to all.Pasted Graphic 3

Each session begins with general playtime. The group has a large selection of toys and there is a different creative activity each time: cooking, painting, sticking, modelling, singing and dancing are just some of the fun things we get up to. The group provides a snack for the children, and then there is a story or singing as they sit together.
