The Earl’s Court Square Garden
The Earl’s Court Square Garden is run by a separate Sub-Committee. Keys to the Garden are obtained from the Earl's Court Square Garden Sub-Committee.
The mission is to provide a well-run communal garden which serves as a focal point for community involvement, service, and entertainment; which provides a welcoming space for quiet reflection and courteous play; and which enhances both the enjoyment and the value of our homes.
Friends of Brompton Cemetery
The cemetery is Grade I Listed on the English Heritage Register of Historic Parks and Gardens.
The 39-acre (16 hectare) site lies between Old Brompton and Fulham Roads, a five minute walk from Earl’s Court Square.
The Friends of Brompton Cemetery work to preserve this remarkable site as a model of an historic cemetery with an active role in modern society. They help to restore and maintain the cemetery’s buildings, monuments and landscape, and encourage their full use by those sympathetic to the importance, beauty, heritage and fragility of this significant cemetery. They offer visitors Sunday afternoon tours, guidebooks, maps and postcards.
APPEAL FOR VOLUNTEERS – FRIENDS OF BROMPTON CEMETERY
The Friends of Brompton Cemetery advise that their £6m plus restoration project nears completion, hopefully by the year end, and that they are starting a recruitment campaign to enable them to keep the new Meeting Place (previously thought of as Visitors’ Centre) in the North Lodge open for decent periods from February 2018. Suitable simple training and socialising will be provided during the autumn – see attached leaflets. Please contact Ann Mulcare, their Volunteer Co-ordinator, by email on firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. Please see attachments below.

SING TO LIVE, LIVE TO SING
Please find attached information about the arts and health programme Sing to Live, Live to Sing. Sing to Live, Live to Sing is an initiative of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Arts Service in partnership with Public Health.
We are currently recruiting new participants to the group which meets in Earl’s Court at St Cuthbert's Church, 50 Philbeach Gardens, SW5 9EB. Workshops at St Cuthbert's Church take place weekly on Tuesdays from 6.45pm to 8.45pm.
Are you able to help spread the word via the Earl’s Court Square Residents’ Association and encourage residents of Earl’s Court to give singing a go?
Singing can help to improve breathing, relieve stress, develop core muscles and improve posture. It also boosts confidence, encourages a feeling of belonging, and improves overall mood.
The Sing to Live, Live to Sing workshops are led by an experienced singing tutor. Workshops are free of charge and open to all residents aged 18 years and over. No previous singing experience is necessary.
To take part, residents should contact the Arts Service on 020 7361 3844 or email email@example.com or simply turn up for the workshop and complete a registration form. For full details on the workshops visit www.rbkc.gov.uk/singtolive
If printed flyers to distribute to residents who could benefit from taking part would be useful, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Thank you for your support in encouraging the residents of Earl’s Court to give singing a go!
