About the Project
A free all-day music festival, aimed particularly at young people and families, which showcases local music talent from all genres on one or two stages. Diverse original live music will be complemented by varied workshops providing artistic, sporting, musical and dramatic activities as well as other forms of entertainment. This is a musical festival and artistic offering that rivals central London events, but is held in our local community Recreation Ground. The grant would be spent on supporting volunteers including Chis Rocks branded T-shirts and refreshments for volunteers who donate 4+ hours of their time as well as covering some costs of materials for a painting workshop that will be free for community participants. Both will benefit local community members.
About the Charity
FOCRG hold events, maintain and make improvements in the recreation grounds so that people in the community can best access and enjoy being outdoors in the Rec. This work benefits the local residents of Chislehurst and Mottingham. To date our accomplishments include refurbishing the playground as well as adding significant new equipment, working with other Rec users to improve the community offerring, working with police on reducing anti-social behaviour, liaising with Idverde, who are responsible for Rec management and maintenance, to ensure Rec maintenance/improvements are completed, holding workdays to clean and improve the Rec and holding several events to raise money for improvements as well as get more members of the community to use and enjoy the Rec.
