After our meeting  last month on ‘The business of Greening Redbridge’  one of the outcomes was the need to have an environmental ‘hub’ in Redbridge.  We need a place where ideas and businesses/projects about the environment can be shared, the circular economy and what it means, to be more aware on our environmental choices. So while Sophia Hubs and partners explore that idea, we will know that the market is a meeting place for green minded people so we build up the mini hub the market has already started.

As usual if you would like to get involved in any way, please contact Ros or Begonia. 07957 534908 / 07985 540786.

Things have gone a little quiet at Sophia Hubs now that Ros has left as Coordinator and the Board is drawing up the new business plan.  But in the meantime our volunteer team are working on developing this little gem in the heart of Ilford. 🙂
