BLACK HISTORY MONTH 2023: Saluting Our Sisters

Black people have always been at the forefront of social justice movements, fighting against oppression and paving the way for change. However, despite their countless contributions to society, the achievements of black women, in particular, have too often been overlooked or forgotten. That is why, in celebration of the exceptional achievements of black women, the official UK national theme for Black History Month 2023 is ‘Saluting Our Sisters‘.


Our Saluting Our Sisters Exhibition includes the official collection celebrating:

  • Women who Lead
  • Pioneering Voices,
  • Women who Move Mountains,
  • Women in Business, Innovation and Entrepreneurship
  • Sheroes among us.

In addition we have exhibitions from Weston based sheroes, Jossy Bernice Cole and Sira Sule Basti. Don’t miss Jossy’s beautiful jewellry and Sira’s thought provoking poems.

The Exhibition is open Mon-Fri, 10am to 5pm.

Greening The Other Place

Thanks to Sirona Foundation, we’re creating exciting new growing spaces in the front entrance, in the meeting room and in our back yard. We’ll be growing edible plants and, thanks to our expert team, the design will include innovative integrated composting and self-watering systems.
Would you like to help make the planting troughs or plan the planting? We’re also looking for volunteers who can help us care for all the plants. If you would like to get involved, please do get in touch.

Our public living room is open every afternoon, on weekdays (2pm-5pm, Monday to Friday). Come and relax, help yourself to a cuppa from our community kitchen and have a chat. We’d love to see you. (We’ve also  joined the excellent Camerados movement. Find out more and  spread the word!)
