We have taken the last year to move forward with our strategic plan and upgrade our offer by relocating Connect@ Southgate activities to the Sam Beckman Centre at Betty and Asher Loftus Centre in Friern Barnet, which is one of our hubs. The Betty and Asher Loftus Centre has excellent, modern facilities and provides much better access to a wider range of activity. We will continue to offer a hot, kosher meal on site.

There will be no changes at all to our membership or attendance fees, and they will remain as they were before the pandemic.
