Finsbury Park Community Hub

Andover Community Centre

Andover Community Centre, located in Finsbury Park in Islington, is a space for local people of all ages and backgrounds. We cater mostly to residents living in the Finsbury Park Ward of Islington, especially families and individuals on restricted budgets.

Our usual activities and services include after school and holiday provision for children, under 5s Stay & Play, support groups & activities, and several community events over the year including our major Soul in the City event, which will take place on Saturday 16th July 2022.

Other regular events include:

  • a Monday coffee morning for residents to meet, chat, play board games and go on outings.
  • A Wednesday morning Stay and Play gives term-time support to parents of under 5’s with a chance for both children and parents to socialise.
  • Our Friday Food Waste Reduction Project is a weekly event to reduce waste and cut food miles. It is not a crisis service but we regularly chat to participants about their needs and refer to relevant support services if required.
  • On Saturday FoodCycle run a drop-in Community Lunch where people can share a cooked meal and get involved in activities, with a focus on reducing waste and encouraging people to create their own healthy meals on a budget. For more information about the Lunch please contact andovercc@islington.gov.uk
  • Regular sewing tuition and arts and crafts sessions
  • a variety of different keep fit classes including pilates and Zumba contribute to the wellbeing of participants
  • We have an ongoing gardening project which welcomes volunteers.

We can offer space to hire for parties, meetings, or regular activities
