Love Golborne is a community website for residents, businesses, community groups and visitors in Golborne. Check out the website for details of events, and to chat to others in the area.

The Golborne ward Councillors have focused their City Living, Local Life attention to three main priority areas – maintaining the sense of community through events and celebrations; supporting unemployed people through training and skill development; and arts and cultural activities for all residents.

In 2014 this has included funding a wide range of community-focused festivals and activities including the Golborne Festival, Farmival 2014, Notting Hill Nurseries Carnival and supporting a locally-focused documentary ‘It’s In The Game’ produced by the London Film Foundation that looks at the Olympic legacy in the area.

The 2014 Golborne Festival

Golborne festivalHosted by the Golborne Forum, an estimated 3000 people came to the family-friendly festival to enjoy live music, dance and food from around the world to celebrate Golborne’s vibrant mix of cultures. As well as bringing the Golborne community together the festival promotes the area to visitors to experience first-hand what’s great about the area.

Farmival 2014

Bringing together local green-fingered residents, community gardeners, artists and food enterprises, Farmival 2014 provided a day celebrating organic food growing in the area. Farmival 2014

Organised by Golborne-based organisation, Farm The City London, the festival featured young musicians from across London with a range of fun activities for children and adults alike, including Veggie Creature making and yoga.

 

As well as community get-togethers, the Golborne councils have helped to fund improvements to the Swinbrook Residents Association rooms and a tutor for the North Kensington Women’s Textiles Workshop, based in the Venture Centre.
