SPECIAL FILM SHOW at the Hub on Friday 24th June, 6.30pm. Did you know?  In the 1990s, before the Friends of Lordship Rec was set up, our very own Chair (Dave) and former Lordship Rec gardener (Helen) took on McDonald’s – the global junk food corporation – in what became the longest and one of the most controversial trials in English legal history, backed by a successful global mass defiance campaign? This month (June) will be the 25th anniversary of the ‘McLibel’ verdict. The whole incredible story was captured in an award-winning 90min documentary shown on BBC and around the world: ‘McLibel’. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McLibel_(film)   Dave and Helen will be attending this special showing to answer questions etc. The room is likely to be full so if you want to attend please book free seats from Joan: joanhcurtis51@gmail.com

HUB COMMUNITY DAY + BLOCORAMA Saturday 25th June..  The Hub will be open all day with free activity taster sessions, music and of course the cafe. Includes special Hub members/supporters meeting around 12 noon followed by the cutting of a giant Hub Birthday Cake to celebrate the Hub’s 7th anniversary. In addition there will be a Blocorama steel pan extravaganza in the main field and Shell Theatre.
