New 25-year lease approved by Mole Valley

3 October 2021

On Tuesday 28 September, Mole Valley District Council’s Cabinet approved the proposal, introduced by Cllr Keira Vyvyan-Robinson (above, with Tom Sefton), to lease the whole of the NLCC building to Leatherhead Community Hub for up to 25 years. This is great news for LCH and means that we can invest in the building for the long-term for the benefit of the community.

Speaking in support of the proposal, Cllr Bridget Kendrick thanked the community for working tirelessly to get to this point, and said 'I fully support this and look forward to seeing the Community Hub flourish and delivering the services that North Leatherhead so desperately needs and that we have been fighting for for such a long time.'

Great start made on the garden

30 July 2021

Attention recently has been focused on the garden at the back of the Hub with a band of hard working volunteers literally getting stuck into the landscaping over a very busy weekend.

Access to a beautiful well-being garden and outdoor space for community gatherings and celebration is one of our key priorities and we're impatient to get the area developed as soon as possible. Generous support from local businesses has provided us with landscaping and plants.

Fundraising campaign reaches £90,000

2 July 2021

Our Crowdfunder campaign officially closed in the middle of last month and, with a number of off-line donations also received and including Gift Aid, we're delighted to announce that we have received just over £90,000 to support our work for the North Leatherhead community.

When we originally set our ambitious target to raise the money for both our major building works and the employment of a Cafe & Events Manager, we scarcely believed that we would be able to achieve it. However, the generosity of the people of Leatherhead and the surrounding area has been astonishing and we are grateful to each and every person who contributed.

Judy did it!

2 June 2021

We were delighted to welcome Judy Mason to LCH on 2 June when she completed her sponsored walk in support of our fundraising campaign.

As someone who has enjoyed the benefits of visiting The Hive in the past, she was determined to celebrate the delivery of her new walker by making the one mile journey from her home in central Leatherhead to LCH on what was the hottest day of the year.

She raised over £2,000 and was met with a delighted (socially-distanced) party when she arrived.
