14 Go Mad in Hampstead

In the first of what we hope will be a series of walks, 13 PPBC members and guests joined Blue Badge Guide and Conveyancing Lawyer Jeff Finegold for a guided tour of Hampstead.

On possibly the sunniest afternoon of the whole of August the ensemble walked for 2½ hours around NW3 seeing sights ranging from the local jail to Hugh Gaskill's grave. 

Watch this space for the next one, which will be around St James's

I would like to thank you so much for the charity funding you have sent through for the Access Centre students. The students are thrilled and excited to be able to order the Sensory and Alternative PE equipment they have chosen to support their learning and sensory needs. Many of the students with autism are currently attending school;  we are running a structured timetable to support the routine and expectations that these students require in order to support their  well-being during this extraordinary  time.
