Forest Hill Society AGM

Member and non-members are welcome to the 10th Forest Hill Society AGM on Thursday 22nd October, 7:30pm at the Honor Oak Pub, St German's Road / Brockley Rise. Meeting takes place upstairs in the 'Whisky Room'.

We are always keen for new people to join the Executive committee of the Forest Hill Society. So if you are a long-term resident or moved in last week, you would be perfect to join the committee and work with a team that have a track record of helping make Forest Hill a better place to live.

Forest Hill Library under Threat

Lewisham council are consulting about options for library services in the borough. Forest Hill lends the third most books (after Lewisham and Deptford) but is under threat of reduced opening hours or Lewisham council's preferred option of transferring management to a community group.

Transfer to community libraries in Crofton Park and Sydenham have resulted in reduced lending with three times the number of books issued from the two libraries in 2010 compared to 2014 (based on October figures). By contrast, Forest Hill library lending in 2014 is at 94% of the 2010 level, higher than any other library in the borough.

You can find out more about the proposals at:
​Wednesday 7 October, 7:30pm,    ​Broadway Theatre, Catford
​Monday 19 October, 7:30pm,    ​Sydenham School, Dartmouth Road

Or you can respond to the online consultation.
