Hackbridge Happiness Index

Do you have suggestions which would make a difference to your Happiness Index and your ‘lifestyle choices’ in Hackbridge?From time to time the media report on the Happiness Index of the UK. It’s based on several factors such as economics, work, society and family, politics – and of course physical and mental health and the environment. As a nation we seem to rub along ok, but there is always room for improvement – and the same is true of Hackbridge.During 2013, I asked people in local…See More

"Hi Jo, I'd say The Hope, Carshalton (West Street). Very decent food and it won't break the bank! Also, an excellent range of beers from the bar. It tends to get quite busy on weekends though. Lukas"

Profile Information

About me
I live in Corbet Close, a potentially beautiful location by the Wandle - I am looking forward to the redevelopment around us.

I enjoy food, travel and am not very sporty - but I teach some yoga for Scola, and aromatherapy workshops, and hope to be part of a local group called 'Jelly Bellies' for yoga, dance, walks etc for the more Rubenesque ladies of Hackbridge!

I have been involved with setting up this website, getting Bedzed Pavilion running as a community centre, and I edit the Community News. I believe community is important and everyone has a role in making Hackbridge a good place to be. However, for the next couple of years I shall be a fulltime student at Roehampton so I shall need to focus my energies on that.

I am interested in the history of the area - especially the industrial aspects (I am from the Black Country, where every hamlet had its traditional industrial craft - my town's is still leather saddles, which evolved to go with the metal parts which were actually the original craft).

In a wider context, I am a trustee of the Living Stones of the Holy Land Trust and am taking a group to Jerusalem for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 21st-29th January 2012. We will visit Palestinian Christian congregations, projects and enterprises in the West Bank and Jerusalem - it will be very interesting for us and extremely supportive to the local people. And it only costs about £475 plus flight about £150. Join us?

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(mr.frankkwabena00@gmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Frank.
