Sundays at the Russet

Sundays at the Russet

The last two Sundays we’ve been hanging out at the Russet. A week ago we had a committee meeting there, brainstorming over bacon sandwiches (we have so many ideas, events and happenings going on that we barely know where to start telling you about them all), and today we were there to be part of … Continue reading

There is no I in TEAM

There is no I in TEAM

So, we’ve undertaken a bit of an undertaking and signed ourselves up to run Hackney … not the whole of it, *just* a half marathon‘s worth of it, with a whole load of other people on Sunday 22nd June. We’re sure you’ll agree that the route looks pretty spectacular (and takes in a few pubs … Continue reading

Happy not-so-new year

We’ve been a bit slow off the mark this year but, still, we don’t think it’s too late to wish you a happy 2014. Fourteen days in, hey?! How’s it been so far? For us … not too shabby actually!

Never work with children or animals…!

Never work with children or animals…!

So… you know that saying, “Never work with children or animals”? Um, yeah, we kind of ignored it. There were no lions or tigers or bears, oh no, but there most certainly were children and lots and lots of them! What are we talking about? Our baking workshop of course! The Friday before the Friday … Continue reading

Our wish has been granted

Our wish has been granted

As FCFK Hackney goes from strength to strength, our ability to have a wider impact on our local area is being recognised – recently most notably by Hackney Council who have awarded us a grant for a whopping £1,000. The money has to be used specifically to deliver an event for our volunteers and two … Continue reading

FCFK Hackney goes to market

FCFK Hackney goes to market

July saw us stepping a little out of our comfort zone – we channelled our inner east end barrow boy and headed down to Spitalfields to set up a one off FCFK Hackney market stall. We’d been invited by Imago Dei to tout our wares and raise awareness of what we do alongside a whole … Continue reading
