Cloudesley Association – May Update

1. Meeting Minutes

Please find the Minutes from our residents meeting on 25 April 2017 here. Thank you to all the residents who attended and for their participation in the meeting. It was certainly a lively meeting and it was great to see you all. We are hoping that we will be able to host our next meeting in the new school building. We will endeavour to get a representative from the Diocese to attend our next meeting to talk about plans for the Church.

2. Dowrey Street Site

The keys to the site are due to be handed over to the Bridge Integrated Learning Unit and the Pupils Referral Unit schools on 9 May 2017. Further information from the school heads can be found in the minutes.

3. Barnard Park

As anyone who came to the meeting last month will know, the Friends of Barnard Park are keen to get as much support as possible for their plans to renovate Barnard Park at the Council Planning Meeting at 7.30pm on Tuesday, 9 May 2017. If you are free and would like to help, please do go along to the meeting.

There are two pop up events planned in the Park, which may also be of interest:

  • Saturday, June 10, 11am-4pm.  Ponies return to Barnard Park! Think Like a Pony, an interactive workshop, is back to give children a chance to meet a pony. Also on offer, there will be the Scruffs dog event and Children's Olympics.
  • Saturday, June 17, 11am-4pm.  It's the Big Playday. Mrs H and the Singalong Band perform, fun in the Adventure Playground and bouncy castles in the park. Live music all day with Oxjam, Young Actors Theatre and local music charities. For plant enthusiasts, there will be self-guided tours of volunteer gardening areas as part of Open Garden Squares Weekend.

4. Kings Cross – Courtyard Festival

This beer festival is returning to Kings Cross on the Bank Holiday weekend (Thursday, 25 May 2017 – Monday, 29 May 2017). The festival promises great music, great entertainment (including walkabout performances and circus skills) and great food. Book your tickets here:


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 e mail on and/or ask them to provide me with their contact details so that they can be kept in the loop.
