St John’s will be hosting a series of lunches on Saturdays in Lent from 12-2pm in the Tamberlin Room. The lunches are hosted by volunteers to raise money for a charity of their choice and sodonations are asked for (but are optional!).
Funds raised (including any Gift Aid) are split between the charity being supported (75%) and St John’s (25%).Lunches start on Sat 7th March so come along to enjoy excellent food andcompany while raising money for good causes – many of us find an excuse to go every week!
Croydon Council are carrying out a survey of our green spaces in
Croydon removed from the Local Plan in 2018 on how our green spaces are used. Alarmingly
by zooming in on the map in the attached link it has St John’s Church on the
map, particularly the Memorial Garden.
Also other green spaces such as Shirley Recreation Ground and Millers
Pond are mentioned.
The Local Plan is used by the Planning Authority to advise on
recommended use, so if removed from the Plan then the Authorities can look to
change the use of the green space. Particularly as Central Government are
urging Local Council to increase their Housing Stock.
Please take 5 mins to click on the link, then on every green space
starred that you use, filling in the survey how you use these spaces and what
they mean to you. If we ignore these surveys it is feared Croydon Council will
use the information that green spaces are not valued, so leaving them open to
redevelopment. The survey closes 15th July
