Virtual Walk - MGCA Office and Metronomes Steel Band Orchestra

MGCA Office and Metronomes Steel Band Orchestra

Just a few steps away we come to the ‘Factory Site’, a former factory building with a large Victorian chimney. Here is the Gardeners’ workshop and storage space. During spells of wet weather, time is well spent on rationalising and sorting out our equipment store and maintaining our collection of hand tools and machinery. The factory is also the base for volunteers, who equip themselves here before beginning their working day – usually with a warm drink!

Next to the factory chimney is a tiny office occupied by our small team of administrative staff: the Project Manager, the Administrator/Events Co-ordinator and the Playhut Administrative Support Worker. Together they undertake all the vital tasks of running the charity, including financial management, fundraising and monitoring for a wide range of funders, as well as day-to-day support for the Gardens and Playhut.

It is also important to mention that the factory building is where the voluntary Management Committee attend regular meetings to discuss a wide variety of issues that affect the Gardens.

The Metronomes Steel Band Orchestra have a rehearsal and storage space in the factory building. This area is particularly busy in the run up to the Notting Hill Carnival, when the Metronomes hold non-stop rehearsals in the hope of winning the annual Panorama steel band competition.

The above text is to be updated once the MGCA Virtual Walk pages are finished. Thank you for your patience!
