Message from the Vice Chair

Following the conclusion of our last AGM on Saturday 17 March 2018, the ECA Trustees appointed me as Chair at their Committee meeting on 16 April 2018.

My period as Chair has again been marked by our continuing financial predicament. As a result, the Trustees took the decision to surrender our lease for the office Community House on 1 July 2018.

Following the surrender of the lease we entered into an agreement with Enfield Council to use their hot desking facility on the ground floor in Community House on Thursdays. The cost for using the hot desking facility is free.

My tenure as Chair of the ECA ends this year and I will be standing down at the next AGM on Saturday 15 June 2019.

I would like to thank the trustees, associate members and volunteers who continue to provide valuable services to the community in the form of our weekly drop-in service, luncheon club, our recently established befriending service and the various community events throughout the year.

With your support we will be able to provide these vital services to the BME community and achieve our mission to make the ECA a strong, independent voice for equality and social justice in Enfield.

Paul Riddell
Vice Chair

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

The corona virus has hit us all unexpectedly and has affected everything that we do. It has caused us to change our everyday habits and has led to isolation particularly for the elderly and vulnerable. We are working with StreetWatch Edmonton on a joint project called Together Our Community Survives (TOCS) to identify and deliver food to BAME and other ethnic groups. We are only accepting registration for volunteers at the moment. No new elders can be accommodated unless we have more volunteers. To volunteer an hour of your time, please contact Dionne on 07915 919524.
