Award for local vicar

Holy Trinity Church in Lennard Road

Nick Read, the Vicar at Holy Trinity Church, Lennard Road, has won a Bromley Safer Neighbourhood Award for all his hard work and commitment to the Homeless drop in centre he started up.

Nick won the Community Champion Award.  His project is called ‘Living Well’ .  It takes place every Friday afternoon.

People who turn up are given clothes, food parcels even a mobile phone and bus fares if appropriate.  Some of the individuals will also be able to see other partner groups who come to the project to help with substance misuse on a one to one basis.

But this is just one aspect of the work.  There is a community garden, set up by volunteers, including youngsters coming from the Prince’s Trust.   And there are plans to start a community café run by members of the group.

The Penge & Cator  Community Safer Neighbourhood Panel panel had backed Nick’s bid  for funding from Bromley to continue this worthwhile project.  A large container is expected to arrive this week to help store supplies.  This puts Holy Trinity Church at the heart of our community.  Congratulations to all involved.
