TABLE TOP SALE IS A BIG SUCCESS
Our table top sale on Saturday March 15th was a great success, raising about £510 for DBA funds. Many thanks to all who donated items for us to sell, or gave their their time or those who came to sell.

That sum is made up of the surplus after we have paid to rent the space for St Peter's Community Partnership and comes from tea and cake sales, sale of bric a brac on our stall and table fees paid by sellers.

THE DE BEAUVOIR PARTY IN THE PARK 2014
We are starting to gear up towards the great 10th Annual De Beauvoir Party in the Park, which will be on Saturday July 5th and are looking for 2 or 3 people interested in organising children’s events to join the experienced group who have been organising the Party. It’s hard work, it’s fun, and you will be part of a historic event in your fine neighbourhood. The more people we get who are willing to lead on events, the more we can do, and we would like to make the 2014 Party a very special one.

De Beauvoir's day in the torchlight

The Olympic torch was carried along Kingsland Road, a parade timed to meet it processed through De Beauvoir, and part of the Shoreditch Festival took place in the south of the area. Kirsty Norman, Stephen King and Paul Bolding tell the story in pictures here.

PLANNING

The Kingsland Conservation Area Advisory Committee, which has an official role to comment on planning applications and covers De Beauvoir, has its own website.  It publishes its comments on applications. Email them if you would like to get involved.

 
If you want to find details of a planning application, or see what has been proposed for your road, look at the Council's planning website. You can search by street or by individual application if you know the number. Then you can comment online on an application.

 
If you hear from the Council or some other way about an application in De Beauvoir, please let us know by email and we will spread the word.
