May 11, 2011 Leave a comment

Sunday June 5th 12:00 to 5:00 pm.

Owing to the current financial situation we have been unable to gain funding for our Big Lunch community event this year.
We will therefore have to make a small charge per household which will be a minimum of £5 to help cover the cost of organising the event and having the jazz group again.
You may of course give more which would be gratefully appreciated.

We have already called on – or returning to – those housholds who attended last year and giving them a card with a unique number for the prize draw to be held during the day.
We are also delivering the front garden competition cards at the same time.

You can drop your £5 (plus) for The Big Lunch into numbers 33 or 41 Bond Road and we will deliver your numbered card.

Road closures.

We will again be closing Ellerton Road between Dennan Road and Tolworth Park Road and Bond Road from Ellerton Road to the bend from 10 am to 7 pm.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause residents but trust you will help by moving your carsby 10 am please so that setting up may safely commence. 


We are trying to organise tables and some chairs as last year – but watch this space for an update on this.
We may have to rely on you bringing your own.


As last year it is bring your own food, plate and cutlery and those able to bring extra for sharing – especially foreign/exotic – would be very welcome and much appreciated.

We will supply refuse bags and bags for recycling items.

Fancy dress competition with three age groups:  0 – 6,  7 – 13,  14 – …


We would be grateful for any items you have for the raffle, these can be dropped off at 33 Bond Road for storage.

Wet weather.

The Corner House have kindly offered the use of their venue in the event of bad weather.
We are most grateful to them for this offer.

Help/things required.

If anyone has bunting and/or a portable pop up gazebo they would loan us this this would be most appreciated. 
And, any help you can offer on the day – setting up, selling raffle tickets, clearing up, etc would also be most apprecited.
Please let us know in advance at

It makes it much easier to inform and communicate with our residents if we have your email address.
