The Grahame Park Loop is Barnet’s own community re-use hub. Working with Notting Hill Genesis who manage the estate, we’ve set up The Loop to collect, repair, restore and sell unique, lovingly restored and reasonably priced furniture. We also offer training, employment and volunteering opportunities for residents in furniture restoration.
What’s happening at The Grahame Park Loop?
At The Loop, we work to turn waste into a force for good. Rather than leave unwanted furniture outside to be collected as waste and likely to end up in landfill sites, residents living on the Grahame Park Estate can call us and donate their items to The Loop. We offer free doorstep collection for residents in the local area, then repair, restore or upcycle them in our workshop, before selling them on at affordable prices. All the money raised from sales is reinvested in the workshop and in training for local people. We also offer handy-person services for jobs around the home.
The Grahame Park Loop is located in a previously disused unit which we converted to home to our restored furniture showroom and reuse workshop. Everything we sell has been tested for safety and thoroughly cleaned and refurbished and upholstered items will have the appropriate fire safety labels attached.
General opening times:
Monday: 9.30 – 16.00
Tuesday: 9.30 – 16.00
Thursday 9.30 – 16.00
Friday 9.30 – 16.00

Do you want to volunteer with us?
There are many ways to become involved, whatever your age, ability, experience, interests or time commitment we’d like to hear from local residents who are interested in volunteering with us at The Loop. Could you help out at events, help us publicise the project, assist with collections and deliveries, help out in the workshop or simply spread the word by telling your neighbours about the project? Or do you have practical skills that you’d like to develop or put to good use; metal-working, painting, sign-writing, stitching, carpentry or decorative skills that could help us turn old furniture into new upcycled creations? In return we’ll offer safe, supported volunteering on your doorstep and endless cups of tea.
