Hither Green Community Association public meeting tomorrow

When? Tomorrow Wednesday 21st October 2009 at 7:30.
Where? Hither Green Baptist Church.
On the corner between Theodore and Radford road SE13 6HT (map)
Who? The Hither Green Community Association.
What? Public meeting.
Why? To make this place better and make us a functioning community rather than the inhabitants of what’s around a non description railway station in commuter belt, which is what we’d be if we let things be.

I’ll be there. It’s actually a quite important meeting. Until a couple of years ago there was no residents’ association whatsoever in Hither Green. Then the HGCA was set up and a few visible improvements to the area have been brought forward, the notice boards outside the station, tidying up and planting on green yet grotty patches like the now marvellous little garden around the bus stop in Springbank Road, then hanging baskets on Hither Green Lane, the lovely Hither Green week that took place this summer. Just a few examples of what HGCA has done that spring to my mind now.
Now thanks also to the HGCA we were able to set up the Hither Green Community Hall and Arts Society group focusing on cultural events like the Hither Green Cinema day and trying to rescue the former Park Cinema building to make it into an Arts and Community Centre.
Things are moving, but they don’t just happen, you have to make them happen. Don’t leave it to someone else, get involved.
Come down if you live around Hither Green, care about your area and can make it.
If you can’t come you will be able to read what happened here on this blog but it’s not like the real thing.
