HGP Greenvine - 3 July 2020

Hackney Green Party

Tomorrow sees some more of the coronovirus restrictions coming to an end.

It's been difficult to make any sense of the Government's plan throughout this crisis but hopefully 🤞 this won't be too much of a Super Saturday 🍻and everyone will be able to stay safe and well 🙏. 

More next week

💚 Hackney Green Party
