We would like to inform you that there will be a one-off charitable event being held today starting from 7pm being held at Timber Lodge. It will involve people sleeping out on the lawn next to the building from 10pm. The organisers and the operators of the café, Change Please, are very aware of the proximity to of this to our residents, so will be looking to ensure that there is no noise disturbance.
Here is a link to the event’s website: Sleep Out 2022 – End Youth Homelessness (eyh.org.uk)
And these are the key details in relation to the event operation:
- 130 people will be attending, all of whom are aged 18 or over
- It will start with an indoor presentation, with the provision of food and drinks from 7pm until 10pm
- The only outside activity will be sleeping, from 10am until 7am; and this is to be patrolled by the event’s team and security staff to ensure that noise is kept to an absolute minimum
- It is proposed that the toilet will be accessible overnight for participants, and only from the side door next to the play area so that nobody can access the rest of the building. This will be manned throughout the night
Gagan Prabhakar, Operations Manager at Change Please, is the main contact from Timber Lodge; he can be contacted on 0772 006 9478. Gagan will be onsite throughout if there are any issues or complaints.
