Welcome to our Website
Over the last three years the Friends of Battersea Square have successfully organised six events bringing together local businesses and residents, and attracting visitors from further afield in Battersea and elsewhere. Our Carols in the Square event with the lighting of the Battersea Square Christmas tree has attracted hundreds of local visitors. Our Summer in the Square events were also unqualified successes, with stalls filling the square and along Battersea High Street, and a range of musical and dance entertainments for the hundreds of visitors.
The most recent Summer in the Square, and the Christmas Lights evening received generous sponsorship from John D Wood & Co, with considerable financial and logistic support from Wandsworth Borough Council, and Thomas's School, and help from local residents, schoolchildren, and business people.
While we hope that the Christmas Lights event will take place as usual in December 2013, we have decided with regret that because of the amount of work involved, and uncertainty about funding it will not be possible for the Friends of Battersea to organise a summer event on the same scale this year. We are currently discussing whether it might be possible to organise a smaller scale event this summer, so please watch this space.
