Creating a voice for Dalston
We are very pleased to announce, that we have secured a small grant to make a short film. The objective is to create a voice for the concerns and aspirations of the people of Dalston. Many thanks to Hackney Council for Voluntary Services for showing faith in us.

We are holding a meeting on Wednesday 5 March at the Trinity Centre, on Beechwood Road (opposite the school at the Forrest Road end) from 6:30pm till 8pm.
