Official launch of the Sands Arts & Community Centre

2 years ago

On March 11, we held a party at the Sands End Arts & Community Centre to declare the centre open for business officially and to thank all those who helped get us there. Hammersmith & Fulham Council Leader Stephen Cowan did the honours, along with speeches from Andy Mitchell, CEO of Tideway (which part-funded the building), Cllr Ben Coleman (chair of the SEACC board of trustees) and trustee Timothy Prager.

Mary and Sandra laid on a veritable feast in the café area and we want to give them special thanks for helping to make the day go so well, along with interim Centre Manager Christopher Newport and interim Duty Manager Vannessa Lock.

It was so good to see so many familiar faces from over the past couple of years; from the architects and engineers to council officers and local community groups who already use the centre.

At the party, we also announced that the website was live and also revealed a timeline display, which is on the wall in the main entrance.

Again, a big thank you to everyone who attended this special day.
