It's just over two months to our Party in the Park and the Festival Committee have been flying around getting everything in order, from H&S documents, to booking toilets, liaising and booking bands and entertainers and allocating stalls and stallholders.

We are very pleased to announce that our charities for this year's Festival have been finalised.

 

 

They are St Christopher's Hospice, who do amazing work in the community, both in terms of inpatient care and in terms of care for people with life limiting illnesses at home.  St Christopher's exists to promote and provide skilled and compassionate pallative care of the highest quality.  They rely on donations to continue providing that care and we are proud to be able to support their essential work.  

 

The Community Festival exists to provide a free day of fun and entertainment for everyone.  It remains free because we want to make sure that everyone can visit and enjoy it.

 

 

On the evening of 30 December 2021, 15-year-old Zaian Aimable-Lina was fatally stabbedin Croydon. He was a much-loved student at nearby Oasis Academy Shirley Park and was described as “a beautiful soul, filled with a kindness and wisdom beyond his years”.  His killing, at the hands of another 15-year old, was the result of a unprovoked and brutal attack. To create a lasting legacy in memory of Zaian, the Oasis Trust aims, with the blessing of his family, to create The Zaian Centre in Ashburton Park, where he died..  The Oasis Trust's vision is also for community – a place where everyone is included.  We are very proud to be able to support the creation of a legacy for Zaian.

 

 

More news to follow as we finalise stallholders, bands and other entertainment!
