January News Update

Burns Night
Thursday 26 January (a day late for purists – sorry)
Come along to the All Inn One for another great Forest Hill Society Burns Night. A traditional, and fun, evening of addressing the haggis, and then eating it with the usual tasty accompaniments.
“What a great night! The food was delicious and very reasonable. Great people and the entertainment a right hoot”  Burns Night 2011 attendee.
We’re also looking for people to get involved in poetry reading on the night (Scottish accents a plus), bagpipe playing and highland dancing.
For details on booking and to offer your artistic skills contact alisa@foresthillsociety.com
The Society’s Local History Evening
Thursday 23 February 
7.30pm – 9.30pm upstairs at The Hob
We’ve arranged for the fabulous Steve Grindlay to give a talk on an aspect of Forest Hill History. What Steve doesn’t know about Forest Hill isn’t worth knowing! Come and join us and learn more about this great place we live in.
Exact subject yet to be confirmed, but we’ll update you very soon. Open to all, no booking needed.
We need You
Membership to the Forest Hill Society is open to everyone and costs just £5 a year. Benefits include 12 newsletters, 12 local events - most free, assistance with planning proposals, making new friends in the local area and, perhaps most importantly, the ability to have a say about where you live.
We're a voluntary group and are always looking for people to help with what we do. We have great plans and we need people to help in a number of ways, most very simple and easy things -
  • Handing out membership leaflets in your street, or one close by
  • Distributing our newsletter four times a year, a chance to see different areas of Forest Hill, or maybe do your own road
  • Helping to write articles for the newsletter - either sending your own articles or helping with ones already written
  • Helping with leaflet design a few hours a few times a year.
  • Helping at events - not all, just one is a help - maybe baking a cake, helping on a stall or posting links on local forums
However you can help you'll find us friendly and supportive. if you want to find out more about volunteering with us contact richard@foresthillsociety.com
Freecycle Event
Saturday 25 February (11am - 3pm)
Holy Trinity Church Hall, Trinity Path, Sydenham
A Bring and Take event. Bring stuff you no longer want and, in return, take away stuff you do want. You really can get some amazing things - from CDs to clothes to toys to furniture. What’s not to like?
Trinity Path is between 35D and 37 Sydenham Park.
