An opportunity to visit this converted 1940s temporary emergency war nursery building.
A three-in-one exhibition curated by Fleetville Diaries, the local history group.
A special guided walk around Fleetville’s streets and alleys.
The former nursery building, still in use as a thriving community centre, now has a short remaining lifespan – exciting plans for a new community centre building are underway. Meanwhile, we can discover the history of this unusual structure, with its low ceilings, remaining air raid shelters and underground tunnels.
Fleetville Diaries has curated three small exhibitions especially for you:
ABOUT BALLITO – the story of the former hosiery mills right in the centre of Fleetville.
BEAUMONT AVENUE – the third in our series of Right Up Our Street projects, all about the oldest road of any kind in the district; by a thousand years..
A CELEBRATION OF FREDERICK SANDER, THE ORCHID KING and his artist son-in-law Henry Moon, together with a review of the Sander Tribute Day held on 23rd July at Hatfield Road Cemetery.
A short talk about the history of the current Community Centre building, followed by a short guided walk around Fleetville streets and alleys; how Fleetville grew from its beginnings in 1897. There will be two identical walks, at 14:30 and 16:00. No booking is required but participation is limited to 20 on each walk. Both are identical and family friendly, but no dogs or buggies please as footpath space is restricted. Level surfaces, no steps, wheelchair friendly. We start and finish at the Community Centre in Royal Road. Free 3-hour parking is available on the south side of Hatfield Road.
