This room is named after Octavia Hill, a pioneer of female activism who worked in regeneration, particularly fair housing. She was concerned with the rights (and responsibilities) of people in deprived communities.

A ground-floor room with a small balcony.
Hiring the Annexe supports activities such as the Bosnian & Herzegovinian supplementary school on Saturdays.
This spacious ground-floor space has doors that open onto a small balcony. Noise levels will be higher during lunchtime as the cafe is right next door.

Hiring The Wash House Café enables us to offer our older members subsidised meals and hot drinks.
For large meetings, you can hire the Wash House Café. The café is on the ground floor, with doors opening onto a small balcony.
