Past Events

Switching on the Christmas Tree Lights

On the 1st December we gathered at the Mitcham Lane end of Thrale Road for the Christmas Tree the FCN sponsors every year, to have the lights switched on by the Mayor of Wandsworth.
Thank you to everyone who came along and joined the fun!

Quiz Night 2023

The FCN hosted their annual Quiz night on Saturday 11th November raising money again this year for the Foodbank. All the quizzers were asked to bring a new hot water bottle with a cover and/or blankets to donate to the Foodbank. Thank you to everyone who donated

Martin Beaver's War Walk & Talk

In November Martin Beaver gave a second talk and handed out his self-guided walking trail leaflets funded by the FCN. The guide identifies the places and people killed locally in the VI bombing campaign of 1944.

Jazz on the Lawn

About 300 people enjoyed another fabulous afternoon of Jazz on the Lawn on Sunday 6th August.
Thank you to the South London Jazz Orchestra and to Streatham Park Bowling Club for hosting us, and of course to all our great volunteers for cooking and serving refreshments, our compliments to the chefs!

Furzedown Fun Day 2023

On the wettest and windiest day of the summer... we held our fabulous Furzedown Fun Day! It may have been far from ideal weather but Furzedown supported the event with gusto! To everyone who came along to enjoy the day, supported the artists and bands and bought from the stallholders, to all the volunteers who persevered, hung onto gazebos and kept everyone’s spirits up, and to the FCN planning team who worked for months putting this together, a huge thank you!

Faylands Garden Project

The FCN received a £250 grant from Wandsworth Great Green Week for improvements to Faylands Children's Centre outdoor area.

The money helped us to refurbish the outdoor planters which had fallen into disrepair after the pandemic, providing paint, more soil and compost. We bought plants to re-establish the herb garden and are growing strawberries, tomatoes, cucumber, courgettes, green beans, potatoes and peppers.

Walk, Run, Scoot. 2023

Our ever popular 'Run, Walk & Scoot' returned in May this year. More than 100 medals were handed out and the fastest round the block route took 25 minutes.
Great to see lots of regulars as well as new faces enjoying this event.
