My Earl's Court

In 2015/16, Councillors in Earl’s Court prioritised capital improvements of local community facilities with the main project being to support a part of the St Cuthbert's Church Crypt refurbishment. When completed, this community space will provide a state of the art facility for local community groups to use to hold their activities and events. 

The second community facility to get support from the Councillors was a blue police box outside Earl’s Court tube station, that has had no use but as a popular subject of tourist photos. Through money from City Living, Local Life, the Earl’s Court ‘Tardis’ has been given a new lease of life and as a result will now also have a part time resident – no, not Doctor Who - as it will be occupied by an Earl’s Court Policeman. The Constable will be using the box as a regular base to have a visible presence within the local community and host residents who would like to take up the offer of ‘Cuppa with a Copper’. Another community space that was transformed for the festive period with support of the City Living, Local Life programme was Earl’s Court Road itself, with the installation of Christmas lights in partnership with a range of local community groups and small businesses.

Councillors funded new laptops for Solidarity Sports that will be used by its volunteers to help run the Charity and through this reach more children and young people who could benefit from the activities provided.

Earl’s Court Councillors also awarded funding to An-Nisa Women’s Empowerment Group to hold an event to recognise its volunteers and the work they have done to support the charity.
