It’s that Christmas disco time of year with special guests **Santa** and **DJ Dan**
Saturday 8th December, St Peter’s Hall
This year, we’re organising something a little quieter for the younger ones earlier on; to be followed by pumping disco beats for the older ones (+ parents!).
Schedule as follows:
2.30 – Under 3’s festive music with real instruments
3.15 – Santa will meet the younger ones
3.30 – Older kids (but still primary school age) arrive to meet Santa
3.45 – 5.30 – DJ Dan!!
Drinks will be provided for kids. Please bring some food, savoury or sweet, for the sharing table. You are also welcome to bring wine.
Please note, this is not a drop off party.
PLEASE RSVP, giving the age of your child, so that Santa knows approximately how many goody bags to organise!
And if anyone has any ideas for low-price crowd-pleasing non-plastic items for the goody bags, please let us know and we will pass the message on to Santa.
Do join us for some Halloween fun this Saturday 2:30pm at the Sundial centre.
To enter the Spooky House competition – make one at home and bring it in, it needs to fit on a piece of paper no bigger than A3 – make it spooky!
There will be some pumpkins, so if you’d like to do some pumpkin carving please bring a parent and your own knives/tools to do this.
See you at the Sundial centre!

We met with the Council last year to see what they could do out of their budget. At the end of last year the Council added soil to level off the dips in the grass and reseeded the bare patches. We asked for and got some new planters at the paved area at the end of the Green to provide a bit more colour. We met with representatives from Tower Hamlets including their Prinicpal Arborist who has reviewed the trees on the Green. He identified that there was a degree of overplanting and crowding in the South side of the Green and has recommended removing some trees along Quilter Street side which are in poor health as a consequence of this. The Council made a start on painting the railings; we will continue to follow up to push for the job to be completed.
A few people had mentioned that the small garden on the end of Baxendale Street/Barnet Grove could do with a bit of attention. We asked the Council to put the gate back on and remove loose paving which has been done. We proposed that we create a small growing garden in this space for Columbia Primary School. This would involve fencing off a section which is currently plain grass. The school would create some raised beds there for the children to grow plants and flowers. The Council are happy with the proposal and have met with JHERA and the Headteacher to discuss. A letter will go out to surrounding streets about this although due to staff changes at the Council it seems to be taking longer than anticipated!
There is the potential of doing further work on the Green ourselves but we would need to pay for it and maintain it long term. As it stands, we are only responsible for maintaining the herb garden. We thought it would be a good idea to get that sorted out before we take on anything else…!
When? Sunday 1st June from 2pm onwards
Where? Jesus Green
What should I do? COME ALONG, join the fun and bring some food or drinks for sharing table!
Who’s it for? Everyone welcome
