Pub evening 17 January 2017

At our first pub evening of the New Year on  Tuesday 17 January we are delighted to have as our speaker a member of the Royal Parks policing team who works in our ‘local’  Hyde Park. PC Stephen Barnes will be giving us a short talk on ‘Policing in the Parks’ covering all those issues which are dear to our hearts – cycling, dogs, rough sleepers, etc – and of course any others which you may wish to raise with him.  
As most of us make regular use of this wonderful amenity right on our doorstep, you will doubtless want to hear how the Parks Police look after it and keep it safe for our enjoyment.  So please come along armed with questions and as usual a lively discussion will follow.  
We will meet in the upstairs Theatre Bar of the Victoria Pub on Strathearn Place from 6.30 – 8.30pm.  The talk will start at 7pm but do come early to have a drink and chat with friends.  Please feel free to invite any of your neighbours who may like to hear PC Barnes and who may be interested in joining our Association.

No pub evening on Tuesday 17 May – sorry!

We are very sorry to have to let you know that the HPEA  will NOT be holding its usual pub evening at the Victoria this month.  There was to be a public meeting on Tuesday 17 May at the Victory Services Club to launch the application for the new Hyde Park and Paddington Neighbourhood Forum.  As this was the same night as our usual monthly pub evening we were planning to invite members to attend this important meeting instead.  However due to last minute problems with the venue at the Victory Services Club that meeting has had to be postponed and there was not enough time to rearrange our own meeting for the same night.
Please accept our apologies for this and for the short notice of the cancellation.  We hope to hold our June pub evening as planned on Tuesday 21 June.  More information will follow regarding a speaker etc.  In the meantime would you please let any of your friends or neighbours who normally attend our meetings and who is not on email know of the cancellation.
