Local events coming up . . .

There are a number of events coming up locally over the next few days that are well worth supporting:

The LVIG committee has been hard at work organising two events to brighten up Ladywell this weekend:

Christimas Market Benefit Gig in Ladywell Tavern this Saturday
On Saturday evening The Grey Cats will be performing at Ladywell Tavern. This benefit gig is in aid of the Ladywell Christmas Market, which is in serious needs of funds to make it happen this year. Come and join us for great music and dancing from 8pm on Saturday 10th October, and help make it a Christmas Market to remember.

Bulb Planting this Sunday
On Sunday afternoon LVIG will be out in force to refresh the planters and baskets along Ladywell Road and Algernon Road with some autumn and winter colour, and to get our spring bulbs in. Meet from 2pm onwards on the corner of Ladywell Road/Algernon Road. Please bring any small gardening tools you may have with you - especially trowels, forks, bulb planters, buckets and watering cans.

And advance notice of a few more events coming up:

FOBLC Workday in the cemeteries
On the 18th October, Friends of Brockley and Ladywell Cemeteries have a workday in the cemeteries from 10am-1pm. More volunteers are always welcome, meet at the chapel in Brockley cemetery near the Ladywell Road gate. They will hopefully also soon be unveiling their new notice board, paid for out of the localities fund.

Two volunteering events in Ladywell Fields in November
Saturday 14 November from 1.30 p.m. - Hedge whip planting session in the northern field, run by Glendale. Any children must be supervised by an adult. Contact: Vicki on 020 8318 3986 (Tues-Thurs only) or e-mail her. Meet at the café/WC building in the north/Ladywell field.

Sunday 15 November from 10.00 a.m. - River clean-up organised by Thames 21, in liaison with Glendale and the User Group. We need as many volunteers as possible for this please. 25 or so would be good! Any children must be supervised by an adult. Contact: Chris Coode, Thames 21. Meet in the Park at the end of Malyons Road.

Thank you so much for the plugs for these two LVIG events. They were both a great success: the Ladywell Tavern was packed out with people jigging along to the fabulous Grey Cats and we had a good show of local residents to help refresh the planters and along Ladywell Road the next day.
Thanks to the Big Bulb Plant donation, Ladywell will be a riot of colour when the tulips and daffs come out in the spring.
Finally, and most importantly, many thanks to all who came out to support both events.
