Boxing Day Sharing Lunch Dec 26

As in previous years, we will be holding a relaxed sharing lunch on Boxing Day in the Hill Station.

All welcome, especially if you would like a bit of company over Christmas.

Very informal. Just come along, bring food or drink (not just coca cola, whatever you like!)  if you have something.

And don’t worry if you can’t. We’d like to see you anyway.

This year, in conjunction with Grow WIld

Mazimas feast Fri Nov 23rd

Mazimas is a great concept – a roaming restaurant to showcase the culinary talents and cultural heritages of immigrant women in London. Enjoy the fruits of their labours at their inaugural event at the Hill Station on Fri Nov 23.
