Welcome Back Mycenae House is a not for profit venue and community hub, committed to providing space for activities, services to support the development of people and the community, and as a place for learning, wellbeing, culture and social interaction. We hire space for training, activities, parties, weddings, conferences and meetings. We are four minutes walk from Westcombe Park train station, and Blackheath Standard transport hub and shopping area. North Greenwich tube station is five minutes by taxi. We have limited free onsite parking, ample free roadside parking and many bus routes that pass close by. We are based in the Blackheath Standard area in the Westcombe ward, less than a mile from Greenwich town centre.

Wouldn’t you like to just get back to normal? Or just some kind of new better normal? We certainly would! The last few months have been challenging, upsetting, life changing and to some tragic but we think it’s time to try to look forward and set sail with a new vision. We are determined to help you on that journey and invite you to join us along the way. At Mycenae House we have continued to serve some of our community members in new and life sustaining ways during the lockdown. But, we are now longing to get serving you all again, attempting to bring a little positivity, support and friendship to as many people as we can. We are delighted to present this new brochure, showing you what is happening in the house for the next few months and how things are opening back up and returning to a regular programme. A word of caution though! Things change daily, as the guidance and restrictions change, so we do recommend that you check in advance to confirm activities are running. Additionally, we are delighted to include a new directory and map of local independent shops and businesses in the Blackheath Royal Standard area. In these most challenging of times we want to encourage your support for local independent shops and businesses. By showing a little solidarity and fostering support for each other we can build back a better and more resilient community. Let’s face it, we all cherish living in this wonderful, vibrant, diverse and leafy little part of South East London, so we need to all stick together to make sure it stays that way for ever. Community, you know what to do!

Come & See Us Goodbye and good luck to Reverend Tim Yeager and his wife Caroline.

After several years of wowing the locals at St Georges Church in Westcombe Park, Rev.Tim as he is known here, has retired. He’s off to St Albans so not too far, and we look forward to welcoming him back anytime he chooses to return. We have grown very fond of Rev Tim at Mycenae House as he has supported us in many ways. Not least with his thoughtful and loving stewardship of our annual Christmas Carol services and his masterful (if a little noisy) bagpipe performance at our Burns Night celebrations. A big man, with a big heart and a big intellect.

Hello Again


It came as a shock to find out that the main hall floor had come to the end of its life after asking Just Wood Floors to renovate the floor at the beginning of lockdown. We had to make a quick decision on how to deal with replacing the floor. After listening to advice from far and wide we decided to replace it wiith a super hard wearing 22mm beech wood

A Historic Discovery In taking up the old floor we discovered a local newspaper and bakers paper bag from 1933 under the floor boards, the year Mycenae House was built. They both can now be seen in the cafe. To honour the descovery we hid a copy of the Westcombe News, a Covid 19 Guidance poster and a letter from our staff under the new floor for future staff to discover.

Mycenae House &Gardens

A New Floor for the Main Hall

Your Lockdown Dream Team! After closing our doors back in March we quickly established a core team to keep the house functioning where we could and mothballed everything we had to. This dream team has worked tirelessly to maintain, improve and prepare the building for reopening and we are forever indebted to them. ( at least until next week Our Dudley proving that lockdown didn’t mean lowering his standards of sartorial elegance! The guy scrubbed them floors like no one else could. Maji once again expressing her love for the camera lense! She wouldnt stay away and insisted on paying us all every month. Nothing gets passed that Maji! Ian and Julia posing with cleaning products! These two sure made this place sparkle by painting and deep cleaning to within an inch of its life! They also kept the Take Away Cafe open throughout. Fueled only by fancy lunches and a daily afternoon tipple, this couple lead the way! Kevin doing his best impression of a tree in strong wind worked his socks off utilising his unique DIY and technical skills to keep the ship afloat. Demi Spry has joined the team during lockdown as an extra pair of hands to increase cleaning capacity and help achieve Covid 19 secure status We also need to thank the rest of the team for their patience and agreeing to be furloughed to help keep the organisation afloat. Believe me, they all wanted to come to work rather than sit it out. So Thank You - Anna, Deborah, Paul, Dominic, Donald, Jay, Robin, Emily, Becky, Anna T, Christine. We also need to thank trustees Sara, Jane & Peter and the rest of the board for their unwavering support and confidence throughout this time.


An Oasis Of Calm How Mycenae Gardens became important to many during lockdown We’ve been overwhelmed with stories from visitors who have expressed their love for Mycenae Gardens during lockdown. At the height of the epidemic people felt safe and secure in visiting the gardens for a bit of calm and tranquility. Whether its the dog walkers needing to get out of the house, the single parent looking for space to let their young ones use up some energy or young people needing space from their families, we have enjoyed meeting and chatting with many of those people. During the lockdown we opened the Cafe as a take away direct into the garden which provided the ideal socially distanced meeting place for many in the community.

“ the gardens have provided my family a place of sanctuary and calm throughout, the added bonus has been the chearful staff and cheap take away at Mycenae House to keep us all happy” When allowed to, we held socially distanced events in the garden including a live music driven social gathering of Mycenae House staff, board members, musicians and close associates as a tester event, Bo Peeps Pre school even held their sports day events and their end of term parents events in the garden

AccessAbility - All of Mycenae House available for All The project will take at least a year to complete and include the installations of a lift to all four floors, a new automatic door, ramps and accessible patio to the garden, signage, disabled alarm systems, enhanced lighting and more. This financial support sourced via the Royal Borough of Greenwich is a major investment in the future development of Mycenae House and in the future of our communities. Anyone who knows us, knows that we have worked tirelessly to bring access to the whole building and for the installation of a lift. We also owe a debt of gratitude to a number of people who over the years have fought to make it happen including Councillors Mariam Lolavar, Leo Fletcher, Geoff Brighty, trustees Sheila Peck and Andy Chapman and a host of regualar users whose patience has been nothing short of epic.

Mycenae House &Gardens

We are delighted to announce that our successful application to the Greenwich Neighbourhood Growth Fund will allow us to maximise access to the whole building for all people.

Established in 2017, the Mycenae House Reach Out project offers events and regular activities to help our community reduce isolation & loneliness and to develop skills, find support and capacity to enjoy life to the full. Since the Project began we have been so lucky to attract a number of brilliant, committed and skillful volunteers to help deliver the programme. We are so grateful to them for their hard work and the positive impact they make to our community.

The Reach Out programme supports those that are socially isolated and suffer poor physical and mental health and loneliness in our community. We try to connect those from hard to reach groups to get together and make friends. Reach Out works to support those community members and signposts to other partnership organisations who can give expert advice. The Reach Out Project is currently funded from any surplus made from running Mycenae House. Profits from hosting parties and weddings, the income from the cafe bar and social events held here like concerts goes towards funding our Reach Out programme. When we can we apply for additional financial support. This has included income for our Digital Inclusion work from Royal Borough of Greenwich’s Neighbourhood Growth Fun and also support from ASDA, the John Roan School, Barclays, Grant Saw and others. We welcome ideas and iniatives to help support and fund the Reach Out work we do. Please get in touch if you’d like to help.

Pre-School at MYCENAE HOUSE

High quality flexible childcare for children age 2+

Ofsted Rated

GOOD ( Jan 2020 )

An Introduction to Bopeeps Pre-school

Bopeeps Preschool started in Welling, Kent in 2011 having developed as a setting from its previous owners over many years. Our approach has always been to offer a setting that will put the children first and support them as they develop. We have always worked closely with parents assisting them where necessary to access extended services that the family may benefit from. In 2017 we had to move from our old premises in Welling and opened up in two new locations; A community centre in Welling (St. Michaels) and at Mycenae House in Blackheath where we continue to bring our approach which saw us graded as an ‘Outstanding’ setting by OFSTED at our old Welling location.

Monday to Friday 9am-12pm & 12.30-3.30pm

Bo Peeps Mission Statement: At Bo peeps pre-school we aim to provide a rich and stimulating learning environment that will help nurture young people into capable individuals.

All staff hold relevant childcare qualifications level 2 or 3, and the manager holds a qualification at level 5. The pre-school opens from Monday to Friday during term time only.

OFSTED Quotes from last full inspection on 15th January 2020:

The provision is GOOD Children of all ages have access to a stimulating environment. They arrive happy and eager to learn. Children show they are contented and feel safe. For instance, they form close attachments with staff and form friendships with their peers. Children behave very well. They display good manners and are kind and respectful. Children's communication skills develop well, and they articulate what they know and can do securely. This positive attitude creates a secure foundation for the next stage in their learning. Expectations are high for all children, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and those who speak English as an additional language. Appealing and challenging activities help all children to build on what they already know and can do. Partnerships with parents are strong and an established key-person system is in place. Children enjoy regular visits into the local community. For example, weekly visits to the local care home enable children to share experiences with a wider group of people living in the community. Staff use these opportunities to teach children about safety. Children eagerly explain when it is safe to cross the road.


Working in Partnership with Parents Each child benefits from our triangle of partnership between their parents/carers, our preschool and themselves. The aim is to enhance and support them at this very significant stage of their development through encouragement and environment. We want our parents to be aware of our aims, policies and procedures. We have an open door policy where parents are encouraged to share information with our staff and our staff will share information about their children’s development with parents. Parents should have regular contact with staff and are always welcomed into the preschool. Feedback from parents is welcome and important to our relentless drive to create improvements. We have parent/child review days and occasionally carry out surveys to help us understand your child’s experience to assist us in driving improvements.

BoPeeps Pre-School at MYCENAE HOUSE

Principles underpinning young children’s learning Every child is recognized as having individual needs and their own way of learning at their own pace. Children learn in many different ways; by playing, talking, observing, planning, doing, questioning, experimenting, testing, repeating, reflecting and responding to adults and to each other. Well-planned play both indoors and outdoors, is a key way in which children learn with enjoyment and challenge. The staff in Bopeeps believe that young children learn most effectively when: • They feel happy and secure in their environment • Are interested and involved in activities. • Their work has purpose in a practical sense • They have the support of adults who are interested and informed as to the purpose of their activity • The experiences offered are relevant to their current levels of interest • Their previous experiences and achievements are valued and used as a starting point for the next level or stage of their learning. • They are encouraged to be positive about themselves and have pride in their achievements. • They are encouraged to make independent decisions about their learning and what they want to experience. • Parents/carers are actively involved in their learning experiences. Equal opportunities Every child is a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident and selfassured. Children are all unique and developing individuals, it is important that we recognize the individuality of each child. We provide toys, reading material and crafts that support equal opportunities. Children have access to toys and play materials that they exercise their own choices and use their own initiatives. Curriculum We recognize the importance of providing children with the best standards of education appropriate to their age. Staff training and curriculum reviews take place regularly to ensure a high standard


BoPeeps

30 hours Free Childcare

Our preschool operates the government 30 hour funding provision which may be available to some of our families. If you want your child to be included in this scheme then you must access the Government website. For children at our preschool we need to receive the code the government will issue you with at least 4 to 6 weeks before the start of term as once we have checked it then it must be sent to the Local Authority

Pre-School at MYCENAE HOUSE

Authority for further verification. You may be able to get up to 30 hours free childcare per week (1,140 hours per year). If you’re eligible for the extra hours, you sign up online to get a code to give to Bopeeps Preschool to reserve your place. You’ll get the extra hours once the next term starts. Eligibility You can usually get 30 hours free childcare if you (and your partner, if you have one) are: in work or getting parental leave, sick leave or annual leave each earning at least the National Minimum Wage or Living Wage for 16 hours a week This earnings limit does not apply if you’re self-employed and started your business less than 12 months ago.

The Standard A Local Independent Business Directory Blackheath Royal Standard is at the heart of your community offering a wonderfully diverse range of independent family run shops, cafes, restaurants all united by our desire to play a role in our local community. So, if you haven’t explored what is on offer at The Standard come and have a wander, and along your way, grab a coffee from one of our brilliant cafes/ coffee shops/ delis; stop and have a bite to eat, maybe a croissant or a bacon butty; buy some flowers for your kitchen table; drop off your dry cleaning; book in an overdue eye test, a massage, pilates class or even sign up with a personal trainer; pick up a newspaper; have a beard trim or a haircut, a facial, or maybe even a manicure; buy some hay for your rabbit; pop your duvet in for a spring clean at the launderette; treat yourself to some organic chicken for supper; and buy some vegetables to go along with it; pick up a pressie of two for the little or big people in your life. And along the way you’ll hear people being greeted by their first names as they enter the shops- there’ll be lots of ‘Hello’s and ‘How are you?’ and welcoming smiles and conversations that share both good and bad news but in that sharing there is support and a real sense of care and community. Through the recent months we’ve all been so grateful for your support but being a local shopkeeper today takes courage. The high street as we know it is under threat but with your support we can grow stronger and serve you better. As business owners we all have one thing in common and that is a belief in the importance of the high street for the health and wellbeing of our community. We hope that as we all move forward in these strange and uncertain times that we can do so together - we look forward to seeing you all soon. Julia Director of Fun Ottie and the Bea
