Popping Up Again

In August the Friends of Worcester Park Library launched a successful pop-up gallery and children's play venture in the former 'Model Road & Rail' shop at 44 Central Road.

Now a group called Meanwhile Space are looking to continue this good work. As part of a bigger programme of work they have taken on the lease of the shop for a short-term period. Their plan is to continue the work that the library have already achieved and to develop the space into a community hub for various activities and new business innovation.

Although still in the early stages of designing the identity of the space, they hope to present a welcoming interactive environment for all ages.

Meanwhile Space are working in partnership with the London Borough of Sutton to deliver a regeneration project targeting empty retail properties in the areas of Worcester Park and North Cheam. 

Their aim is to make best use of these empty properties by offering them as space to test new business ideas without financial risk, bringing innovation and creativity back to the high street.

The group welcome all ideas…teaching, studio space, animal day-care, scalextric rally, pop-up cinema, retail, rehearsal space, yoga class…

The space is available at very reasonable rates and booking with us is via a simple application process.

The deadline for expressions of interest is Friday 19th October- contact anna@meanwhilespace.com for an application form, or pop into the shop at 44 Central Road.

Windah Kickin Good (or Kicking The Bucket)

KFC in Worcester Park has been closed briefly after their plate glass door received a kicking overnight.

The Worcester Park Blog understands that the hoodlums did not manage to break in to the fast food establishment, and the Colonel's secret recipe for clogged arteries is therefore safe.
