New home for cycles The Bike Project takes your unwanted cycles and gives them to refugees and asylum seekers in London, to help them support themselves. Now that TWAM no longer takes bikes, why not support this initiative. They can be dropped off at Hampton Methodist Church on Sundays between 11:45am and 12.30pm.

New Carers Café If you are you a carer living in the Hampton area why not join others at a new café at Hampton Hill’s United Reformed Church, 35 High Street. The person you are caring for is also welcome. They offer a safe, supportive and confidential environment in which to meet and share experiences.
