Although the Grove Neighbourhood Centre is temporarily closed and staff furloughed, volunteers continue to work behind closed doors, keeping in touch and supporting the elderly and disadvantaged households in the community.
Brackenbury Good Neighbours has started to put together a list of people living in the local area who might need support over the coming weeks. Do please get in touch with us if you know someone who might appreciate some help with errands such as shopping and collecting medicines, walking their dogs or perhaps even just a daily phone call to make sure all is well.

Both are proud ‘Suzuki kids’ – they followed the teaching philosophy of Dr Shinichi Suzuki – and they have now opened a Suzuki school at the Rocks Lane Multi-Sports Centre in Chiswick. Dr Suzuki developed a unique method that enables children to play to their best ability while absorbing key life skills at the same time. ‘Children start young (three-plus) when skills are easily mastered and they learn in a natural way by listening and repeating,’ explains Toby. ‘Lessons are on a one-to-one and group basis; making music is about communicating, so playing socially from the beginning is vital.’
