This website has been inspired by the need to support continuity of the 60+ exercise classes, which are not well described on the centre's main website, but we hope to serve all members of the Highgate Newtown Centre community. Here is our current Timetable, which we are updating as things evolve. For details of our 60+ classes, see the Activities Page. Coordinator's of HNCC's other activities are also included in Key Contacts. With this website (and associated mailing list) we hope to enable centre users to keep in touch. If you would like to be involved or need further information please use the Contact Us form.

Here is a view of the main building of the current centre, which had many rooms used for a variety of projects, including Therapy, Lunches and Art Classes. Because of the centre development project, the building is mostly out of use since 1st March 2019 onwards, and our classes have been moved to various halls nearby.

The view below, looking across from the Fresh Youth Academy shows the large hall, a fully-equipped gymnasium (next to the woodwork studio, which used to house the under five's space) where we currently hold classes when the Gospel Mission Hall is unavailable.

The People's Gospel Mission Hall, used to be an independent venue, but became part of HNCC and was handed over to Camden Council in 2014 and incorporated in the Fresh Youth Academy. The campaign to prevent redevelopment of the Bertram Street site failed when planning permission was granted by Camden Council on Thursday 14th February 2019. A new campaign to save the PGMH, which is off-site and destined to be turned into two town houses was launched on the same day.
