This Sunday’s Feast is set to be a scorcher!
Fresh and Green stalls are back in their new home outside the Library & Picturehouse, while the Artisans’ Market can still be found on Chatsworth Way.
From now until the end of the year, West Norwood will face significant disruption thanks to the upcoming Thames Water works. But don’t let that put you off visiting your favourite monthly market!
Put the first Sunday of every month in your diary, come down and see what we have to offer.
Sports Day at the Family Hub – feeling competitive? Head to the grounds by the West Norwood Leisure Centre where the South London Play Partners will be challenging everyone to sack races, three legged races, wheelbarrow races and satsuma on a spoon races (who needs eggs, hey?)!
If crafts are more your thing, have a go at designing your own ‘trophy’. We’ll have cardboard colouring sheets to decorate, and finished trophies will be tied with string to wear around the neck. Everyone’s a winner!
‘Allstars Kids Club’ will be by the Family Hub hosting fun and games including a football game so if you’re missing the footie season, head on down. If you’re a wiz with numbers, Maths Explorers will be doing the usual wonderful ‘Fun exploration of Maths’.
Prime is is a new social enterprise to get men active in the prime of their life (40-60 years old). Launching in Summer 2019 in West Norwood with a mix of local social meet-ups and menu of fun local taster activities based on 3 themes: Get Active – country hikes, bike rides, over 40s boxing. Be Social – local history walks, curry clubs and volunteering. Make stuff – workshops, crafts, music, nutrition and cooking.
