News and events

A big thank you to everyone who helped out at our spring clean/rake up on Saturday 13 April 2024.  Lots of hard work, but it makes a big difference. 

Thank you, too, to those who took part in the plant swap (bringing along contributions ranging from small seedlings to a large olive tree!). It went very well - lots of happy recipients and a good amount donated for the local foodbank. 

The book swap in the square on Saturday 8 June 2024 went very well with many books being swapped and just over ÂĢ200 raised for local families in need. 

Past posts
Our annual Carols in the Square event on 19 December 2023 was a great success. We managed to raise just over ÂĢ2,200 for the Kennington Association's Secret Santa Appeal for local families in need.  Thanks are due to the wonderful Fever Pitch choir, all the residents who helped set the event up and served mulled wine and mince pies, and those who gave so generously to the collection, both in person and online. 

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. Date for our spring clean up t.b.c.

👑👑👑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. 👑👑👑
