This is to fund a free social event for our community, our aim is to engage with all local residents so we together can enjoy professional fireworks, whilst the stalls and entertainment will also encourage individual interactions amoung neighbours. This event will take place at Abbotshall Road Healthy Lifestyle Centre Catford SE6 1SQ. Delivered by volunteers to encourage a sense of pride in local residents.
The Corbett Residents Association has delivered many community events in recent years as well as other activities, leading to greatly improved community cohesion.
These events are primarily attended by families with children, some of whom would not otherwise have the opportunity to enjoy a professional firework display. The CRA welcome all who live within Catford South ward to all our events. The fact that this can take place within the ward on a very limited budget and delivered by volunteers encourages a sense of pride in local residents. Our volunteers inevitably develop a bond and sense of achievement in delivering a successful event and this helps strengthen the community.
This is an excellent opportunity for other local organisations to engage with the community of Catford South and we already have expressions of interest from local volunteer groups to become involved.
We have made contact with various places of worship within the ward with the aim of working together to bring people of different faiths together.
We will provide musical entertainment and aim to have a live band during the pre display activities.
