2017 is Interlinkx CiC & CC Hackney's tenth year.

Interlinx CiC, is also responsible for CC Hackney's HQ/house and home as well as leading on fund raising & community outreach. It's been ten years since founding in 2007. Our partner organisation (CC Hackney) came into being later in the same year.

New base for Interlinkx CiC and CC Hackney

Time at Nightingale Estate & Olympus Square is just about up, we're set and ready to move on. As director of ICiC I signed a legal document with Hackney Council (our main sponsor and enduring partner) for a new home for us at the Elsdale Community Centre E9. This is a long term arrangement and we will be moving to this space this week. Both organisations (Interlinkx CiC & CC Hackney) will accommodate and run sessions that effectively outreach the neighbourhood and serve those that would otherwise not access quality cycling in the Borough of Hackney. Delivery here will be happening as an on going commitment that is in line with our main sponsor's informed policy and the general headline view 'Hackney: a Place for Everyone' 

Working from here will be a significant change for the better, we have the potential to make a positive and lasting impact at the ECC. Unlike Olympus Square, this building is not condemned for demolition; we could be here happily ever after!

I'd like to thank everyone who has helped and supported us so far (10 years) and I'm looking forward to seeing what we can do for those that like cycles and cycling from our next home.

Below is a time line regarding this move:
The last session from 6 Olympus Sq: 15.04.17

Saturday youth group sessions start at ECC: 06.05.17 
1. Outreach & beginners introduction session 10.00h - 12.00h (Keir & Zemi)
2. Established and experienced session 09.00h - 11.00h (Neil, Prosper & Harry) 

CCH & ICiC's Elsdale Community Centre launch party TBC : 20.05.17 (6-10pm)



Best regards,


Keir Apperley


Director - Interlinkx CiC
