Welcome to the website of your local Residents' Association. The Association is open to all those who live in Cleaver Square, Cleaver Street and Bowden Street, London SE11. 

News and events

At our AGM on 27 November 2023 we agreed to set up another fundraiser linked to our forthcoming Carols in the Square event - helping to support local families in need at Christmas (through the Kennington Association's Secret Santa appeal). If you're able to donate even a small amount that would be wonderful. Every penny goes direct to the families in the form of vouchers. Here's the link:


A big thank you to everyone who helped out at our recent autumn rake up/clean up on 7 October  in the square and local streets, and with pruning, clearing and bulb planting on Charlie's Patch in Bowden Street.  Some of the volunteers are shown taking a well-earned coffee break in the photo below. 

Tuesday 19 December 2023 from 6.30pm: Our annual not-to-be-missed charity Carols in the Square with the wonderful Fever Pitch choir. Mulled wine and mince pies will be served. 🎄❄️🎅🏼  
Older posts: 👑👑👑A wonderful time was had by all at the residents' Coronation party on 7 May 2023. Many thanks to everyone who helped with the preparations and clear up, and to St Anselm's church and Roots & Shoots for lending tables.  Thanks also to Beefeater Gin, our wonderful local distillery, for the generous donation of their excellent gin, a key ingredient in our legendary Cleaver Crush cocktail.  All proceeds from the day were given to the local foodbank. 👑👑👑
Other activities
