2020 Coronavirus re-opening

Summer 2020 re-opening after lock-down

Here at Covent Garden Community Association (CGCA) we are looking forward to seeing our neighbourhood re-open for business.  For those of us who can, we will need to support our local businesses more than ever in the absence of many visitors.

However, the situation also carries some concerns for the community.  For example, we are working very hard to get an amendment to the ‘Business & Planning’ Bill that went through the House of Commons rather quickly on Monday 29th June.  We believe that measures to deal with the full impact of some points have not been dealt with in the wording.  Westminster council, and the amenity societies in central London, are aligned on this.  As is Nickie Aiken, our MP on the Westminster side.  But we need to work fast.  To this end we have chosen what we believe to be the most glaring issue to highlight for amendment.

2020 Coronavirus lock-down

2020 Coronavirus lock-down

Here at Covent Garden Community Association (CGCA) we are continuing all our usual planning, licensing and environmental work – especially in relation to community safety which is, unfortunately, quite an issue at the moment.  There just won’t be any live presentations from developers until restrictions are eased.  And, sadly, the May Fayre has had to be cancelled so we won’t see you out in the sunshine then.

Local organisations are are dividing things up between us to support our community, trying not to duplicate efforts. (more…)

Armistice Centenary

Armistice Centenary

In November 2018 a series of commemorative events across the UK will mark 100 years since Armistice.

Capco Covent Garden is planning to commemorate the Armistice by exploring the role played by the local community and would like your help in gathering information relating to the community’s contribution to the war effort.

This could be the story of your family from the Covent Garden area who took part in the war effort, either as a serviceman or back home, or the role of local services (such as nursing hospitals) – and, of course, the Market itself. (more…)
