Following the crowd might not necessarily be a bad thing – particularly when it’s helping local groups to bring people together and bring civic spaces to life!

The Kensington and Chelsea Hive is a platform where local people, organisations and groups can post their ideas and start crowdfunding.

Already on the Hive, three borough-based organisations have started their crowdfunding journey by posting their ideas for a local community festival, rejuvenating the Meanwhile skate park, and helping local children to take to the road for the first time at Notting Hill Carnival…

So, do check out the Hive and offer your support for these projects or post an idea of your own at
