It takes a (small) village…

The day after the UK Referendum in our old shop, Unit 1, something magical happened. We suddenly became very busy but not busy with sales, a different kind of busy as people from the local community came in throughout the day seeking friendship and connection, wanting to share the confusion of emotions they were feeling.Continue reading “It takes a (small) village…”

Transformation

This month has been busy. Not that the month before was not, but this is a different kind of busy. An up in the air, juggling, planning, head-scratching busy.  Because RSL Collective is changing. After over a year in Queens Parade, Willesden Green I have been blessed to connect with a number of complementary therapistsContinue reading “Transformation”

Saturday afternoon stroll

The Aquarian and I took a walk to Queen’s Parade in Willesden Green early this afternoon so he could take a look at the space.  That look turned out to be more of a sneak peak as it was too last minute to arrange a viewing. Peering through the windows though was enough for himContinue reading “Saturday afternoon stroll”
