Cloudesley Association Update – March 2017

1. Meet the Heads – Residents Meeting – Proposed Dates

We have invited Ed Ashcroft (the new head of the Bridge School) and Nigel Smith (the head of the PRU) to come along to our next residents meeting to answer any questions you may have and talk to us about the schools, as they will be our new neighbours very shortly.

We have a couple of proposed dates at present, 24th and 25th April, so please note for your diaries. Ed and Nigel have yet to confirm availability so we will write nearer the time to let you know which date it will be and the proposed venue.

2. The Everyman on the Corner

A new cinema (32 seat capacity) has opened at the Plimsoll Building! Check it out at:

3. Park Run

Every Saturday, at 9am, there is a 5km timed run in Highbury Fields.

In addition, for the smaller members of the community, there is a Junior Park Run (for 4-14 year olds) every Sunday, at 9am. The junior run is only 2km.

Both runs are absolutely free and all you need to do to run is to register at

4. Classic Car Boot Sale

The Classic Car Boot Sale returns to King's Cross on 22nd & 23rd April 2017.

Complete with live broadcast by Soho Radio, life-size 3D cars and a record breaking hand built single wheel motorcycle, this is advertised as a family-friendly festival.

Early-bird discount tickets available to book online now.

5. Ceramic Art London

90 leading international ceramic artists will be exhibiting in this major selling show and exhibition with Central Saint Martins.

Works featured include Rebecca Appleby's abstract multilayered forms, Ben Arnup's colourfully veneered pots and Julie Ayton's porcelain and stone tableware.

Ceramic Art London will be held in the Granary Building from 31st March to 2nd April and open from 10am to 5pm. Tickets can be booked in advance.

6. Dowrey Street Site

Kevin Morallee at Morgan Sindall has confirmed that the building is still on target to complete in May. Unfortunately they are having to work Saturday mornings to meet this deadline, but they are trying to limit this to quieter operations.

7. Underground Noise around Cloudesley Square (and surrounds)

Grinding work should be completed by the end of March. With a bit of luck underground noise should now (or very very shortly) be much reduced. Please let us know if you find that this is not the case and we will follow up with TfL.


If you are aware of any event, consultation or news item that you would like us to include in our next newsletter, please let us (or your street rep) know.

As ever, if you know of any neighbour who is not on the Cloudesley Association e mail distribution list, please pass this email on and/or ask them to provide me with their contact details so that they can be kept in the loop.
