    Mitcham Cricket Green-the next 50 years Special Workshop

    Cricket Green – the next 50 years

    Your invitation to our special workshop on Monday 8th April, 7pm, Vestry Hall

    Mitcham Cricket Green Conservation Area is 50 years old and we’re looking for your input into its next 50 years as we refresh and update our Cricket Green Charter.

    Everyone is welcome – we look forward to seeing you on the evening.

    We’re celebrating the 50th anniversary of Mitcham Cricket Green Conservation Area this year!

    The things that we all know make Cricket Green a special place – the ancient greens, variety of historic buildings, wonderful views and rich story – were officially recognised by Merton Council in 1969 and now by law every effort has to be made by developers and others to “preserve and enhance” its character.

    We have a programme of celebrations and events planned, including a 50th anniversary Community on the Green on 18th July and a special Mitcham Heritage Day on 14th September.

    Keep an eye out on Twitter for our 50 things initiative telling the story of the Conservation Area through photographs of things that people have told us are special to them. We are also looking to plant something golden!

    The 50th anniversary is also a time to look forward and think about how Cricket Green is going to change in the future.

    Over the last few years our work has been guided by the Cricket Green Charter and its principles to inform policies and planning decisions about the future of the area.

    Among other successes the Charter is the starting point for the £5m now being invested in The Canons and its grounds.

    It is time for a refresh and we want your views.

    How would you like to see Cricket Green change and develop?

    Let us know what you think by:

    attending a special public meeting in the Vestry Hall on Monday 8th April at 7pm
    sending your comments to info@mitchamcricketgreen.org.uk before Easter
