This is a touch outside SE1 - but people on here seem to have a lot of great connections so I hope someone can help.
I run the local Girl Guides unit in Kennington.
Unfortunately, we will soon no longer able to use the church hall we have been meeting in (St Pauls, Lorrimore Square). We are hunting for a new home and wondered if anyone can suggest somewhere close by - or have any contacts I can exploit! I've contacted all the local churches - but the response has been non-existent I'm sad to say.
Does anybody know of anywhere, preferably in Kennington/Walworth (but I am open to suggestions), that would be suitable and will take us? We are looking for somewhere that could easily accommodate around 30 people with toilet and, ideally, kitchen facilities (the girs love cooking).
Our current meeting details are on Tuesday evenings during school term time between 6:30 and 8:30 (although there are usually adult volunteers before and after that time preparing and clearing away). Obviously we don't have a lot of money for rents on commercial premises.
There is a (disused?!) church on Copperfield Street corner Pepper Street.
I sometimes see the lights on in there, somebody must know what's up with it.
Would be wonderful to see some life being brought back into it!
