Annual General Meeting notice 2017

Come along and join the Friends of Croydon Road Recreation Ground for our Annual General Meeting at 8pm on Thursday 23rd November 2017 in Azelia Hall (Roger Spears Suite), 258 Croydon Road, Beckenham, BR3 4DA
 

This year in May, we provided entertainment from Bromley Concert Band on the bandstand and in September we once again enjoyed music from Lewisham Concert Band and raised much needed funds for the bandstand's restoration.


In August 'Bowie's Beckenham Oddity' Festival which was organised by Wendy Faulkner and her team proved extremely successful once again and raised around £12,000 towards the restoration fund for the bandstand.
Up-to-date costings for the restoration work to the bandstand are currently being secured by London Borough of Bromley and alongside this the amount of match-funding continues to grow.

Would you like to find out about joining us as a park Friend? Do you have a question about how the park is maintained or an event or activity you would like to see?
Would you like to know what is being planned for the future including updates on our fundraising activities for the bandstand and paddling pool? 
Do you have any skills, ideas or enthusiasm to help us over the next 12 months? 
 
Then come along to our annual meeting at 8pm on Thursday 23rd November 2017 at Azelia Hall!
Refreshments will be provided!

Representatives from Idverde, who have the London Borough of Bromley's contract to manage their parks, will be present to give us an update on our park and to answer any questions and also provide some background and updates to the bandstand fundraising campaign.

We are always looking for help with our group so, if you would like to join our committee, please email us!

Christmas Event!
Crystal Palace Band are coming to play some Christmas music and carols on the bandstand again this year on Sunday 17th December at 3pm for around an hour. We will be supporting and helping to organise this free event and are hoping to be able to provide a refreshment stall.

5pm: Gates open in Croydon Road and Village Way.
6pm: Small "Quiet Display" for younger children (no bangs)
