Flower Fairy Festival Timetable
17/06/2015 17:00:00......Posted by Helen Pollard

Here are more details about the Flower Fairy Festival that will be taking place in Park Hill Park over the next two weekends.  Hope to see you there!

The festival is geared for families and has FREE entry to 99% of the events. A full timetable of the activities, workshops & performances at the festival will be published on the Croydon Heritage Festival website, along with details as to which of the workshops are ticketed although you can just turn up. There will be a very nominal charge for the craft workshops.

On both the 20th & 27th of June The Flower Fairy Festival will include a mini pop up cinema in the Pavilion at Park Hill Park. If successful we hope to hold more such movie nights in the park. We have a list of the films however as we are FREE we promote the films. Let’s just say it’s a mix appealing to children & adults. Rough time slots below.

It will be an informal, laid back, homemade affair with curtains to hold back the light of the longest day of the year, carpet on the floor with bean bags for seats. It will be FREE however we would appreciate donations from those attending in order to cover our costs.

Surrey Street

Spent the morning meeting residents in the area around Surrey Street.  They are very concerned about the proposal to put a nightclub in the basement of the Q Car Park which is just off Surrey Street.  The market stall holders are also concerned as they store their goods, vans and stalls in the basement.

Children's Services Briefing
06/12/2017 14:35:00.......Posted by Helen Pollard

Attended a briefing about the MASH (Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub) team in Croydon Council's Children's Services.  All councillors are 'corporate parents' so it's important to get a better understanding of all aspects of Children's Services.

 


 

Council Meeting
04/12/2017 14:31:00.......Posted by Helen Pollard

Attended Council Meeting in the Town Hall.  Asked the Cllr Butler about what protection will be provided for our green spaces under the local plan.  Not very reassured by her answer as there are likely to be some green spaces with no protection at all.

 


 

Lloyd Park litter
02/12/2017 10:29:00.......Posted by Helen Pollard

In Lloyd Park today and was disappointed to see two bins overflowing with rubbish. This seems to be happening more regularly in the last year or so.  I have reported this to the council and will put pressure on the current administration to ensure the parks cleaning contractor does its job properly.
