Promoting education and re-creation for recreation in South East London

01/12/2020 Update

END OF AN ERA AFTER 45 YEARS

Following the request from National Grid to use the site we currently occupy at Falconwood for a "Head-house", we have received six months' notice from UK Power Networks, our Landlords, to remove from the site in accordance with the terms of our lease.

During the next few months, we shall be dismantling our miniature ride-on railway and other equipment ready for re-location to Hall Place.

Consequently, there will be no further Public activities at our current location and members' activities will continue to be limited to those allowed by Government COVID-19 legislation -mainly volunteer work-parties.

We are, of course, very sad to have to leave the Falconwood site, which we have occupied since 1975, but this is not the first time that the Society has relocated, so we look forward to our future.

The lease with Hall Place is imminently going to be made available from Bexley legal department for our solicitor to "cast an eye over" before it is signed by the Society's Directors.

We wish all our Members and Friends a Merry Christmas and a very Prosperous New Year and look forward to welcoming all our supporters at our first Public Running Day in our new location.
