We have just heard (through leaflets dropping through our doors) that there will be a Q&A session this Saturday about the new building on Coburg Crescent. There will be a marquee next to the hoarding around the demolition site, at the junction of Coburg Crescent and Palace Road, between 9.30am and 12.30pm.
The Brixton Chamber Orchestra will be putting on a free open-air concert at Cressingham Gardens Estate on Saturday 31 August 2019, from 3pm until 5pm. The 30-piece orchestra will play “Euro-Classics, fresh pop covers & Samba dances”.
The concert/party will take place on the ‘mounds’ – the hillocks on the Brockwell Park side of the estate. There will be children’s activities, including a bouncey castle. Early-birds will be provided with food from a Caribbean barbecue (please make a donation), but otherwise, bring a picnic.
A family fun day will be held on Palace Road Estate on Sunday 11 August 2019. Put the date in your diary!
PRERA’s AGM for 2018 will be held at 7pm on 16th October. As in previous years, the venue will be Laburnum Hall on Cheshire Estate – just next to the Palace Road Nature Garden.
The committee will give a review of what has happened over the past year. There will then be an opportunity to vote for, or be elected to, next year’s committee. A council officer will also be present to give an update on a proposed new waste policy.
If you care how the estate is maintained, if you want to help organise events, or if you want to influence how your council tax or service charges are spent, come along!
This Wednesday there will be a walk around Palace Road Nature Garden with the president of the South London Botanical Institute, Roy Vickery. He will be helping us to identify wild flowers and dicussing their uses and folklore. The walk will start at 7.30pm.
PRERA’s AGM will be held on 19th September 2017 at 7pm in Laburnum Hall on the Cheshire Estate. This is an opportunity to hear about what your committee has done on your behalf over the last year and to elect a new committee for next year.
If you would like to get more involved with our estate community, please get in touch. Whatever you are interested in, be it youth activities, gardening, community engagement or something else entirely, PRERA can help you.
Michelle and Rob spent some of this afternoon delivering flyers for the AGM to the whole estate, so you should now have had one through your letter-box. See you on 13th September!
There will be a General Meeting of the Palace Road Estate Residents’ Association on 19th April at 7pm. This meeting is an opportunity for residents to find out what their committee has been doing. The committee will also be able to find out what residents concerns are, so that they can better be addressed. Do come along!
The Tulse Hill Forum have just launched an initiative to engage with residents and seek their views. This will take place every Tuesday afternoon for the next eight weeks.
