Volunteering Opportunities

The Primrose Hill Community Association (PHCA) has existed for 43 years, promoting the well-being of Primrose Hill people through activities for all ages at the community centre in Hopkinson’s Place. The Primrose Hill Community Library was saved from closure in 2012 and continues to be run by the Community Association. The association also runs the Neighbourhood Nosh project, feeding people in need in our community, organises a summer fair in Chalcot Square, runs events and online events and publishes a magazine On The Hill.

We receive no running costs grants and raise money through donations, renting its premises and events, with great local support.
