About Us

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.

The yoga teaching is superb - precise and expertly explained, yet the class retains a friendly, warm and inviting atmosphere and is not competitive in any way. I emerge each week not only with a lightness and freedom in my body, but a clearer mind and a greater sense of wellbeing. Joy

As a newcomer to the class and a beginner with yoga I have been made to feel very welcome and have found the class really friendly. The atmosphere is relaxed but there is a clear focus on what we are aiming for and why this is beneficial. The two hours fly by and I have left each time feeling more relaxed, more aware of how I fit together and several inches taller! Margaret

The Wednesday morning class makes my week. These two inspirational teachers, their informed and progressive approach to yoga, and the welcoming group has transformed my yoga practice. Charlotte

Wednesday morning yoga is a pleasure, which keeps me strong, supple and energized and cures most of the aches and pains of getting old. Ana
