As 2018 comes to an end, we would like to wish everyone happy holidays and
the very best for the New Year. We also invite you to join us at our free community Christmas Party on Saturday 8th December, 7pm at Melvin Hall (SE20 8EU) a buffet and soft drinks will be provided but please feel free to bring your own drink/alcohol.
Bromley Labour and Conservative councillors and party members are working together to support Bromley Brighter Beginnings this Christmas. It is a charity supporting local families in financial hardship, as well as women and children in domestic violence refuges. Their Christmas appeal is collecting donations to provide hampers with toys, games and food, giving families a welcome boost over the Christmas period.
We know this is just one of many appeals local groups and residents are running in the lead up to Christmas as more people than ever are feeling the impact of austerity and cuts to local services. Thank you to the charities doing amazing work locally and to everyone who is donating. You can also donate at:
- Living Well’s Christmas appeal is asking for donations to prepare the 150 food bags they give out to local people the week before Christmas. See their website or Facebook page for a full list of items they need. Drop off at Holy Trinity Church on Lennard Road at certain times or at the donation bin in Sainsburys.
- Melvin Hall Community Centre are collecting toys and small gifts for women and children in Bromley and Croydon Women’s Aid’s refuges. Donations can be dropped at the hall during the day or by contacting Cllr Kathy Bance at kathy.bance@ bromley.gov.uk
