Sydenham Assembly 1st December 2018


The next Sydenham Assembly is to be on Saturday 1 December at Sydenham Library, between 12 noon 11:30 & 2pm.

The Mayor will be there for a Question Time session; this will take 50 minutes, so given the marketplace voting for local services, there will be very little time for discussion between us, or with any speakers.

Get those questions lined up, so we can get the utmost from the Mayor’s visit.

Sat 1st December is the next Sydenham Assembly with a definite Christmassy feel. The meeting will include Mayor’s Question Time with Lewisham Mayor Damien Egan and will be followed by a children’s show, craft-making, a bar with drinks, mulled wine and mince pies and Christmas carols and the lighting of the Christmas Tree outside. We hope you can make it.
