Sophia Hub update

In her latest update on our Sophia Hub Ros Southern writes:

"On Thursday - 28th - we have our second Timebank training event - An Introduction to Twitter. This means that a member of our community with a skill to share, this time Rev Jonathan Evens, will volunteer his time and others can come along and 'spend' or 'donate' their hour to the Timebank. We are excited that this new Redbridge currency is starting to circulate. This is open to everyone in Redbridge, not just start-ups. It's from 2-3pm. If you are already a member of the Timebank, please email to let us know you want a place. If you are not a member, you can sign up here, email or ring if you need help, or turn up at 1pm on Thursday and we will start off your registration process. Everyone gets 5 hours credit for signing up! More information here.

If you have any Timebank questions - please just ring me or email the team on For info on last week's Introduction to Facebook training - click here.

On Saturday 30th, there is a visit to Woodgrange market at Forest Gate to see how they set up their thriving pop up market. Join Dawayne Williams, Seven Kings Town Centre manager and others - all welcome. Meet at 12.55 and we are catching the 13.06 train. Very exciting! Hope to see you. More information here.

This week Ilford business FP Comms is running free marketing advice all week for businesses and some ticketed evening sessions. Info here. Tickets are reduced to £10 if you use the Sophia Hubs code - contact me on for details.

Forward notice - our lunchtime enterprise club re-starts on Tuesday 2nd September. It is an extended and special session on the Map of Meaning, led by Sue Howard. 12.15 - 2.45. This is mainly targetted at helping start-ups to run your business in line with the meaning the business has for you - a more holistic approach. I can reserve places for established businesses if the session is not fully booked. Please email to reserve a place. More info here.

We are partnering with Forest Recycling Project to promote re-using paint and other environmental business opportunities in the borough. If you want free paint for you group (or even for your personal use) please get in touch. More info here.

Finally thanks so much to Terry Freedman for leading an interesting session on e-safety for business last week. More info here.

As always, all this information is on my blog if the links don't work:

Please feel free to pass on this email and get other's to sign up. If you have information you want me to pass on, please get in touch."
