The London Bike Hub is the new occupant of the shop at 59 High Street in Brentford.

It has been active in the local community for many years after being founded in 2011 by local cycling enthusiast David Eales and the not-for-profit organisation now has a mission to get everyone cycling, regardless of age or ability.

They may be familiar to you if you have had help from 'Dr Bike' at the Brentford Sunday Market or on other Sundays in Brentford Market Square or you might have had a smoothie at the Brentford Festival which was whipped up with the use of pedal power, or had your shopping delivered by an eco-friendly cargo bike.

Now under the directorship of Winston Gordon and Brian Smith it continues to expand activities. The new store will be selling, servicing and repairing bikes and offering bicycle maintenance courses, cycle training, last mile logistics and contributing in the local community in many other ways.

The new shop front signage was created by local artist Wendy Mackenzie.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
