By popular demand it was decided that we do still need a Community Cinema and Arts Society. And in Hither Green tradition, we are going to sit around drink and talk about it and listen to some music too!

Date: Monday 27 July
Time: Doors 7pm. Discussion to start 7.30pm
Location: Cafe of Good Hope, Hither Green Lane

We’ll be meeting up to have some food, have some drink and work out what we want to do, what we can do and how we can do it!  There have been a number of people step forward in the last couple of months volunteering to help.  Even if you don’t think you can spare the time to help out,  you can come along and give suggestions for others to talk about (because that is what we do in Hither Green, we talk to each other, a lot!) or just listen to what other people think.

This is to be a social get together where at the core we are going to talk about the Cinema and other Arts in the area but is really a way of communicating with our fellow Hither Greenians in a relaxed environment.

We will provide the wine & beer and Cafe of Good Hope will provide snacks, coffee and tea. Music will be supplied by Fred Schmid who is co owner of the Lewisham Arts Cafe in Manor Park. If you have been there recently you may have heard his saxophone music drifting across the greenery!

So, you have from now until the 27th to put your thinking caps on and think what would be good for Hither Green, what would bring people together and what can Hither Green Hall do to achieve that? A tall order?  I don’t think so. Hither Green is full of ‘Can Do’ people and I am glad to be amongst you!

(Please Note: I have done everything I can not to use the word ‘Meeting’ as that sounds a bit too stuffy and that is not what we are about!)
