Holdfast Bakery: Consultation Survey

In early 2022, SMART is planning to launch Holdfast Bakery in Chelsea – an innovative social enterprise which aims to support local employment, whilst delivering fresh made, sustainable bread, directly to the doors of local residents.

We are currently undertaking community consultation across Kensington & Chelsea to identify demand for a community bakery and other social enterprises, and would really appreciate any feedback that will help us kick-start baking and buying local in the surrounding area.

Please follow this link to complete our consultation survey, which will take under 3 minutes to complete: https://bit.ly/3vR0j4Z .

Thank you!

Pandemic Pizza Event – Saturday 18th July, 12.00 – 2.00pm

We’re really excited to be co-hosting an Il Mulino’s Pandemic Pizza Event this Saturday, with Chelsea Community Champions.

Pandemic Pizza is an amazing project, started at the beginning of the crisis, which gives FREE freshly made Italian pizzas to vulnerable adults and families, and NHS staff.

This week, they’ll be offering their pizzas to Wiltshire Close, Samuel Lewis, and Sutton Estate residents, as well as SMART members and NHS staff.

You’ll be able to find us, and the mobile wood-fire oven/Range Rover, at the Brompton Hospital on Sydney Street, just opposite St Luke’s Church, from 12.00 to 2.00pm (or until the pizzas run out).

Please call Marsha on 07407 194 694, for further information, including delivery arrangements for people that are shielding.

A challenge for World music Day: 21st June

It’s World Music Day on Sunday 21st June! As there will be no music zoom session next week, we are asking you all to try listening to some music that you haven’t heard before, a different genre, band, style etc. and let us know what you listened to and what you thought of it. You could try digging out CDs you’ve not played, or what about tuning to a different radio station and trying it out (stick with if for 15 minutes at least!). Try Radio 1, 2 or 6 if you don’t usually listen to them, or what about Classic FM? Let us know by giving us a call or email Sarah – and we’ll share your new music discoveries!
