BIG LUNCH 2018 – TOMORROW! 10 JUNE 2018
Just a reminder that NSMRA and All Souls have collaborated on putting on the Big Lunch every year since the idea was first formulated by the Eden Project in 2009. So this year is the 10th Big Lunch.
So what’s it all about? It could not be simpler. The community meets up at the corner of Northcote Road and Haliburton Road, sits down (tables and chairs will be provided) and eats, drinks and gets merry together. Bring food and drink to share, corrall your friends, make new friends, ask neighbours to join you.
For children, the Church lays on entertainment and fun. There will be a raffle with some AMAZING prizes.
No need to confirm, or do anything apart from turning up: the fun starts at 12.30pm.
If it rains, the church opens its doors!
If you can help set up the tables, please appear at 11.30am. All assistance appreciated!
PLEASE REMEMBER: From about 11am, Northcote Road will be closed from Newry Road to the footbridge end, and we ask that residents try not to park in that part of the road adjacent to the curtilage of the Church.
River Celebration Day
The River Crane is the boundary of the NSMRA area and the Tidal Crane Association will be holding its annual River Celebration on 16 June 2018 – this event has been running for 41 years and is a wonderful community get together – not just for those with river frontages!
Meet at 10.30am at ‘Capri House’, 63 Percy Rd TW7 7HD (through alleyway next to Talbot Rd bridge and turn R).
There will be opportunities for exploring the River, getting damp and muddy or just looking! The evening rounds off with a riverside BBQ. Full details at this link.

Four years ago, the Association marked the centenary of the start of the First World War with a series of events which were centred around the names of local people who died during that terrible conflict.
It is proposed to commemorate the end of that War with a performance of poetry, prose and song on 11 November 2018, which is a Sunday. It will be a community event, as it was before, and if you would like to participate in it, please get in touch, particularly if you would like to sing, or get involved in stage or sound management.
We are also raising money to pay for sound equipment, and if you know of a local sponsor, please get in touch.
In any event, please put the date in your diaries.
The Association has relaunched its website. The link is: nsmra.org/
