About us

Telegraph Hill Playclub is a free, drop-in, stay & play community playgroup for under fives and their carers. We are run by a close-knit team of Playworkers and volunteers.

We took over from Lewisham council following government spending cuts in December 2013 and we have been running independently since then. It’s taken a lot of hard work from many fantastically committed people over the years to get Playclub to where it is today and we’re very proud that it is still run by the community, for the community.

Playclub is a community initiative, rather than a service; everyone is encouraged to lend a hand and new ideas are welcome. We aim to create a community space that is supportive and inspiring for children and their carers alike.

Playclub is a sub-committee of St Catherine’s, Hatcham, Parochial Church Council and values the governance support that St Catherine’s gives us, however we are not a religious organisation. St Catherine’s is delighted to work in partnership with the THP, offering governance and practical support, so that the community can benefit from this wonderful resource.
