Queen’s Park Community Council’s first Winter Fair is to be held this Saturday, December 12th, from 3-5pm in the Rose Garden in Queen’s Park Gardens on Ilbert Street. There will be live music including Christmas carols from members of the All Sing! Harrow Road Community Choir and performances from St Luke’s church band and local singer-songwriter Rosie Holloway.
A range of stalls will offer free craft activities for children, hot food, mulled wine, cakes, mince pies, gifts and jewellery. There will be a petting farm for children, and Christmas trees and lights on sale from Paddington Youth Social Enterprise. Plus a raffle with prizes including a £50 restaurant voucher, ‘Guess the weight’ of the cake, and a welcome from local MP Karen Buck. Please join us at this seasonal celebration for the whole community!
Also on Saturday 12th, from 1-3pm in St Jude’s Hall on Ilbert Street is the community’s annual over-50s Christmas party – with live entertainment including bingo. This is a hugely popular occasion, run by volunteers, and an important event for our neighbourhood in which many residents feel concerned about the well-being of vulnerable older people.
Queen’s Park Voice
The deadline for the next issue of Queen’s Park Voice is January 6th and we are keen to hear from any locals with ideas for stories they would like to see covered – or who would like to write an article themselves, or buy an advertisement. This is our winter issue, and it will be delivered door-to-door in February bringing you news of local events as well as all the latest from Queen’s Park Community Council. Emailinfo@queensparkcommunitycouncil.gov.uk or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally we’d like to wish everyone in Queen’s Park, of all faiths and none, a very happy holiday and New Year. We are grateful for all the support we have had over the past year and aim to achieve more in 2016.
With best wishes from your 12 Queen's Park Community Councillors: Musa Ahmed, Katie Cowan, Philip Andoku,Ryan Dalton, Gill Fitzhugh, Julius Hogben, Emma Morgan, Eartha Pond, Susanna Rustin, Angela Singhate, Emma Sweeney, Joe Fernandes
