Haringey Community Expo 2017 – 24 November 2017
Over 600 people attended the 2017 annual Haringey Community Expo which took place on 24 November 2017 at Tottenham Town Hall. The event was a celebration of the outstanding achievements of Haringey’s Voluntary and Community Sector, and a chance for groups to promote their services and showcase their work.
Over 40 organisations exhibited their work in the main Hall, letting the public know about the activities they could get involved with and signing up volunteers. The event also featured performances and exhibitions, as well a workshop from London Sport on setting up a physical activity project.
Central to the day were two discussion panels featuring local experts and decision makers, the first covering the topic of Community Safety and Knife Crime and the second on Local Giving in Haringey. Members of the public and representatives from local organisations were able to hear panellists’ perspectives on these pertinent topics, as well as ask questions and make suggestions. This contributed to two highly engaging and productive sessions with valuable contributions from participants.
Councillor Eugene Ayisi, Haringey Council Cabinet Member for Communities said: “The Expo was a fantastic opportunity to recognise the incredible work going on in Haringey and the people who are making such a difference to the lives of those living in the borough.”
