Chalk Farm Foodbank Collection

Chalk Farm Foodbank Collection

Some local residents have been organising a regular foodbank collection for Chalk Farm (one of our nearest Foodbanks) and given some shortages over the summer months have cast the net wider in an attempt to support their collection. There is now a collection box in the church along with a list of things which are needed. Included in the call out for donations is stationary for children returning to school this September.

If you are able to, please do pop into the church and drop some off.

Church Walk Development Information Evening

Residents meeting and Q&A – Wednesday 6th June from 5:30pm to 7:30pm

Northvale Construction has recently written to local residents regarding the Church Walk House Development. They write:

‘We are pleased to advise you tat we are the appointed Building Contractor to carry out the construction work for the above address. The project involves the construction of a two and three storey building made up of 31 new apartments over an underground carpark and four attached town houses including external landscaping. The building work is scheduled to start from the 4th June 2018 and completion is scheduled for December 2019.’

Northvale goes on to apologise for any inconvenience that may be caused and to outline the schedule for construction. Finally they call the meeting for residents on the 6th June between 5:30pm and 7:30pm at All Saints’ Church, which they will be hosting along with the developer Goldenstone Development.

‘This is an opportunity for residents to ask us questions about the works and for us to explain more detail about the project. Please feel free to pop in on the 6th and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.’
