H&F Hive

We’ve set up the H&F Hive to help crowd-fund community projects in Hammersmith & Fulham.

Wendell Park Gardening Friends

The H&F Hive offers a new and creative way for community groups to make changes to community space, or organise new and exciting activities.

So, if you have a great idea for a community project, environmental improvement or event, get started by getting your project information together and uploading it on Spacehive.

Getting advice before you start

It’s easy to make a bid and there’s lots of help from our team.

If you have an idea and you want to talk it though before you get started, contact our community engagement officer on 07776 673 003 or email cat.priddey@lbhf.gov.uk.
