VRG activity: Autumn 2017

After another very successful Safari Supper on 21st October, we’re now looking forward to the Christmas carol singing and mulled wine on 10th December. You will soon receive a leaflet with all the details. On 4th February next year we will once again run the popular Media Madness event where residents can exchange books, CDs and other media items – look out for more details soon.

At the end of December Sam Clarke steps down as chair and hands over to Philippa O’Connor. We’re very grateful to Sam, and look forward to supporting Philippa over the coming year.

Notes of all VRG meetings are available, as always, on this page of the blog. Please don’t forget that all residents are very welcome to attend the meetings and help plan interesting future events.

VRG Activity: Summer 2017

The “reinvented” Big Green Balloon Day took place on Saturday 13th May, with many activities enhanced by a partial road closure allowing us to be out enjoying the street. It was well received and we’re thinking hard about whether and when to repeat it, and how it could be even further improved.

Notes of all VRG meetings are available, as always, on this page of the blog. Please don’t forget that all residents are very welcome to attend the meetings and help plan interesting future events.

The next meeting will be on 4th September, 8pm at No.52.

Quiz Night 16th April 2016

Leaflets are going out to everyone in the Seven Roads publicising the VRG Quiz Night on 16th April. Previous quiz nights have been very enjoyable, and the evening also provides VRG with an opportunity to raise the modest amount of money needed to support its activities, including our annual liability insurance.

Please encourage friends and neighbours to join in, and it’s even better if you can get a team of six together!

VRG has a new notice board!

To complement the existing notice board outside No.36, we have added another at No.74. It’s perfectly located for residents of the eastern half of the road who probably walk down Kings Cross Road and therefore miss the existing board. The same guidance applies as for the first notice board: feel free to post anything of direct interest to Victoria Roaders, including flyers for events you’re involved with – but also please put your name and house number (or phone number) on the back; we may take down anything that’s not so labelled.

Our sincere thanks go to Peter Street for giving his time and expertise to make and install it. Thanks, too, to our residents who have generously provided space in their front gardens for these boards.

Done!

A job well done!

Media Madness 2016 – 31st Jan

Once again we’re holding a Media Madness event where residents can exchange books, CDs, DVDs and any other media that you have enjoyed and you would like others to enjoy too.

You should receive a flyer through your letterbox in the next day or two. Alternatively you can see it at this link.

We very much look forward to welcoming you from 2.30 to 4.30pm on Sunday 31st January, at 59 Victoria Road. No money changes hands. There will be refreshments (feel free to bring a small cake or a few biscuits to share), and any material left over at the end will be given to Oxfam. Animated discussion over the merits of the material on offer is strongly encouraged!
