Summer 2023 in Coulsdon

After the resounding success of the Coulsdon Community Partnership's (CCP) The Big Lunch event at Coulsdon Memorial Park, where we celebrated the King's Coronation on Sunday, May 7th, 2023, we are excitedly looking forward to another remarkable community endeavour. We are thrilled to announce works are moving forward towards the opening of The Hive, a vibrant Community Garden located behind Coulsdon Library. As we eagerly await the completion of the hard landscaping, we invite you to join us in this new chapter of community engagement and collaboration.

The Hive and CCP Collaboration: In the spirit of fostering community unity, CCP and The Hive are joining forces to showcase their shared vision and commitment to creating a vibrant and inclusive community. Over the summer months, we will be hosting a stall at the Old Coulsdon Village Fair on Saturday, July 1st, thanks to the generous sponsorship from Eleanor's BNI Emerald Chapter. This eagerly anticipated local event, held in Grange Park, provides a perfect platform for us to connect with residents and share our passion for community development.

The Hive: A Thriving Community Garden: The Hive is set to become a thriving hub for community engagement and green spaces within Coulsdon. Once the hard landscaping is completed, it will transform into a vibrant garden brimming with life, color, and opportunities for connection.
