The Hornbeam Cafe and Art Catcher Ltd are looking forward to their WMAG Fundraiser Gig No. III, presenting musical artists from the UK and worldwide, with songs reflecting on the societal and political state of their countries and the world.
We are happy to welcome singer-songwriter Juli Szatmari from Hungary (now lives in Bielefeld, Germany), whose songs are increasingly deeply concerned with the state of the world and attitudes she observes in European countries including her own. Juli creates a great rapport with the audience and will leave you feel like she has sung this concert just for you! Do have a listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09KJ0VWaThA
Juli’s concert will be preceded by some percussion by Alex Nikolakakis, requiring a bit of audience participation! As usual, 50% of the evening’s proceeds go to the work of Walthamstow Migrants Action Group. £6 advance, £7 on the door. Buy your advance ticket at https://ticketlab.co.uk/event/id/2722
As a brief summary, to deliver our classes, we typically partner with schools, children’s centres and other community organisations. Our partners provide the space and recruit the learners (and receive £120 per learner that attends 50% of the course), and we provide a trained volunteer to deliver the classes.
We are now looking for new partners in Waltham Forest and want to make sure we’re complimenting and adding to existing provision. For further information about the project Contact Calley: firstname.lastname@example.org

Connecting Communities ESOL Single Point of Contact (SPOC) Manager: (PO4) £38,994 – £41,847 (fixed term for 12 months with possibility for extension)
Born from the borough’s selection as one of only five Integration Area pilots nationally – and the only one in London – Connecting Communities will establish innovative solutions to local needs. In doing so we will empower residents to take the lead in their communities and be the catalyst for change, and provide them with the support and infrastructure required to achieve their ambitions.
The post holder will manage the development and implementation of the new Single Point of Contact (SPOC) for ESOL provision in Waltham Forest.
The SPOC is a core component of the Council’s Connecting Communities delivery plan, and the purpose of this role will be to manage and develop the service. Based at local hubs throughout the borough, the post-holder will be expected to lead or contribute to a wide range of partnerships and English-language provision.
Connecting Communities is more than a programme; it represents a new movement that will impact across the community, council and partners and our local teams will be at the heart of it. We’re looking for people who can not only handle that pressure, but embrace it. This role require proactive and confident individuals who can develop new ideas, challenge perceptions, and identify opportunities working alongside the voluntary and community sector, local residents and services.
