Please join us in congratulating:


Woolwich Common Community Centre

They will be the first organisations in the borough to display the Community Charter Mark on their premises and on all their media.


From being breast feeding friendly, being a London water refill location, through to community meals and London Living Wage. Every little action makes a difference.
