It's a full house at Hammersmith's Livat shopping centre, as JD Sports moves into the space which has been empty since fashion store New Look vacated it in the spring.

This is one of the larger street facing units in the recently revamped centre - formerly Kings Mall - and JD Sports is now inviting local people to apply for a range of jobs ahead of its launch, by visiting the company's web site.

The sports store is joining two other recent newcomers, The Fragrance Shop and Atelier100, a multi-functional space on the east side of the mall which showcases products made by local creatives, designers and manufacturers.

The long awaited launch of Library of Things is also here, with online reservations available from today, June 17 and the library itself open for self service collections, in the meeting place opposite Ikea from June 28.

Library of Things is a community-powered social enterprise aiming to help people save money and reduce waste. It offers local people the chance to borrow over 20 useful household, DIY and gardening items, such as pressure washers, drills and hedge trimmers, at a low cost. Find out more and place your orders.

And as we enjoy the longest, sunniest days of the year, Ikea is inviting the community to come along and celebrate the summer solstice in a Swedish style Midsommar Fest on Saturday June 25 and Sunday June 26.

The fun will include face painting and the chance to create flower headbands, or karneval krowns, and enjoy live performances of midsommar music and song. The fest is free and local families can simply drop in and take part during the weekend.

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 info@neighbournet.com 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.
