The lively annual Canonbury Society Christmas drinks event, kindly hosted by Nina Konrad, Friends of the Rose Bowl Trustee and Jerry Norton, was very well attended.
Angela Potter, FoRB Trustee, thanked the guests for their generous support of the Rose Bowl during the past year and for donations to the evening’s raffle, which raised a record £360 in aid of the Rose Bowl Youth Club.
Angela paid tribute to the long standing support of Diane Brace and William Greaves, who recently passed away. They were both strong advocates of the Rose Bowl Youth Club as a way of building a sense of community and inclusion in the local area.
Jonathan Gibbs, Founder of the Isledon Partnership which provides services to the Rose Bowl, updated the guests on the activities at the Youth Club.
In particular, he urged the locals to participate in the consultation on The Wilderness Project. It is designed to convert the wooded area adjacent to the club into a space where the youth can explore, socialise and have fun.
