During the pandemic it feels like people are waking up to the importance of community, especially in these difficult times.


Some local residents would like to create a space where every voice is heard and respected, to explore what really matters and where we would like to go from here. We will explore our varied experiences during lockdown, discovering what was missing or what we didn't need after all. To start this process, we are setting up a community circle event on Albert Road Rec on Saturday, 11th July, from 2pm to 4pm (weather permitting). It will start with a little live music by locals, followed by lightly structured conversation. Everyone welcome!


The gathering will be divided into groups of 5 or 6, each on a 3m square canvas mat to enable social distancing. There will also be a zoom session running concurrently for those who prefer to take part remotely, which will feed into the open air discussion. We will seek out some foldable chairs and cushions, but more would be very welcome!


Comments and questions on the event are welcome.

  • This event is for everyone. For example, I'm making it clear to my 17 year old daughter that she is welcome (I'm not saying that she will come!). If you live, work or play in the Alexandra Park ward and the future of this ward is important to you, you are welcome to come and share your experiences.

Are there lessons to be learned? Where would we like to go from here? See poster for details.

    EVERYONE welcome. Please tell your neighbours, and share widely! Social distancing will be enabled.
