New stretch target

To help the Friends of Gipsy Hill run activities at the garden in the New Year.  Workshops, planting for the spring/summer, petanque days and heritage walks to encourage the community to volunteer and make Gipsy Hill a better place to live.


Wow, what a year! We helped Open Door Kitchen at Christ Church Gipsy Hill provide over 6000 meals to people in need in SE19 and supported the Food Bank run by Kingswood Estate Tenants and Residents Association. We also funded healthy meals as part of ‘basketball & breakfast’ for local children, organised by New Covenant Church, and our volunteers continued to maintain the seasonal planting in the gardens and work on establishing the raised borders in the sidings garden – our garden volunteers have been busy! Now, as we near the end of the year, it’s time to turn our attention once again to the festive period...

Pledge your support and help us bring a community Christmas Tree to Gipsy Hill!

Donations will be used to provide the tree and decorations, as well as facilitating carolling and other activities around the tree throughout December so that the residents of Gipsy Hill can enjoy the festive spirit. Join us for a heart-warming drink at the Great Southern, Colby Arms, The Bull and Finch or Rock Steady while performances happen, or join us online via the live stream on our Facebook page!
