Our Next Events
We aim to hold a wide variety of social and fund raising events during the course of the year. Our Quiz Nights are very popular and we try to hold one every two months. We have also held a Bingo night. Two parties for all the family take place each year, one in the summer and one at Christmas. Let us know your ideas by email
EU: In or out ? Fri 19 February
Charlton Parkside Community Hub invites local residents to explore the pros and cons of staying in or leaving the European Union.
A free event open to all presented by Syed Kamall MEP.
Friday 19 February from 7pm to 8.30pm (doors open 6.45pm)
In The Old Library at Charlton House, Charlton House, London SE7 8RE
This event is strictly neutral and non-party political. Its aims are to air as many key issues as possible, discuss individual concerns and allow a more informed decision to be made. Syed will give a brief overview of the pros and cons of staying or leaving before opening it up to the floor for a Q&A session.
Street Party - July 2016/7
It has been suggested that we might organise another street party as the one in 2012 was so successful.
For those that don't know, approx 450 people came to the one that took place in Heathwood Gardens.
We would ask everyone to give some thought to this idea.
We will be emailing everyone in the Spring to see what the groundswell of opinion is. A variant on the street party could be a 'Party in the Park' with inter-road sports matches ( rounders, running ), a stage for entertainment and more.
Thinking caps on please, everyone !

Tuesdays at St Thomas' 10am-2pm
This secular event, open to all, is run by a community group and we are happy to promote it on their behalf.
The Drop In sessions on Tuesdays began as a result of a discussion concerning the lack of outreach and facilities for older and vulnerable people in the area, many of whom do not or can not get out to socialise very often.
The sessions are meant for anyone to pop in for a cup of tea or coffee and a chat. There is no formal programme, the sessions develop according to the needs and wants of those who attend.
At present we have occasional visits from an art therapist, plus Tai Chi, a knitting group , card games and jig saws and simple cooking and cake decorating. There is no compulsion to participate in any or all of the activities, people are welcome to just sit and chat in the hall or in the church if a place for quiet reflection is preferred. A simple lunch is available, there is no charge but donations towards the cost of the food (provided by the small group of committee members) is accepted.
