The sun is shining and it’s time to book some forthcoming events in your diary.

Trash or treasure?

When? Saturday 7 May, 10.30am-1.30pm
Where? Outside your house!

Back by popular demand, our next Trash or Treasure street sale takes place on Saturday 7 May, 10.30am-1.30pm. The aim is to sell, swop or give away your unwanted goods – and buy or take away those of your neighbours. All you need do is set up a table outside your house, and away you go. ASSA will do the publicity, organise other community recycling, information and other events at the same, and arrange to clear away your unwanted things at the end of the event by donating them to local charity shops and through a special collection by Lambeth Street Cleaning.

Albert Square Summer Fair

When? Saturday 4 June, 3pm-6pm + Jazz in the square, 7pm-10pm

Book the date – it’s ASSA’s annual summer fair. We are planning our usual spread of stalls and games, an art competition for kids and adults, Vauxhall City Farm, owls, bees, face painting etc… But we need YOU to volunteer to make sure the day goes well.

We are looking for volunteers for the following – and any new ideas or offers from you!

  • tea/coffee stand
  • tombola
  • Pimms stall
  • music – live or recorded
  • raffle

Also – please do let us know if you have spare tables or gazebos that you can lend on the day. Sponsors also gratefully accepted!

If you want to help out at the Fair, or have further ideas or would like more information, please do get in touch with Rosemary Ellis on: rosemary_ds@hotmail.com or Brenda Kirsch on: brenda@bskirsch.demon.co.uk
