It's all going on in Mount Vernon!

Updated: May 14, 2021

Mount Vernon Community Hall has lots going on this month. As we approach summer, more outdoor activities will be available. As lockdown restrictions ease, Mount Vernon Community Hall will be able to return with some of their weekly activities such as SatoriKarate, Dogs Trust dog training classes XS Tae Kwon Do, Pamela Carslaw's School of Dance, the cycling club, and lots more.

The Mount Vernon Community garden is thriving. The aim of the garden is to increase biodiversity in Mount Vernon Park. This includes planting wildflower beds and making bird and bee hotels to encourage the presence of more local wildlife. The garden has become a central place in the park for park-goers to socialise and enjoy. Volunteers have collaborated with Mount Vernon’s community from the outset on how to create a garden that best serves their needs. The community garden utilises underused areas in the park. Over the last few years, hard work has transformed these areas into places everyone can enjoy.

The ACM football classes available for kids are on Friday evenings. These football classes are a great introduction for young children to football and fantastic for learning skills in sports and coordination. The classes also build confidence and teach children about teamwork. All the coaches are PVG checked and fully insured.

For those looking for a fresh start, Slimming World has restarted its programme. Details on how to book are available on the Mount Vernon Community Hall Facebook page. Mount Vernon runners are continuing to meet weekly, all are welcome to join in. You can find them at the park on Wednesdays at 6:30.

Mount Vernon Community Hall has been serving the community since October 1971 and they are always gathering local stories. If you have any pictures or historic facts about Mount Vernon Hall or Mount Vernon itself, feel free to get in touch. If you are interested in exploring some of Mount Vernon’s history, Mount Vernon Community Hall displays old photographs, maps, and other archival material on their website. Make sure to check it out, as they celebrate their 50th anniversary later this year!

More information about these activities and more is available on their Facebook page: Mount Vernon Community Hall and their website:
