What do people think of the idea of installing a Trim Trail in Cheam Rec?
There is already one in Overton Grange. It can be used by both aspiring athletes and young people to keep fit and let off steam.
It could run up the centre of the Rec, where there is currently a single line of trees
Cllr Mary Burstow will be proposing the idea at the next South Sutton, Cheam and Belmont Area Committee in September. She would like to hear your views.
Cllr Burstow said “Whilst we have plenty of play equipment in Cheam Rec for young children, we have very little for older children and teenagers. This really needs to be addressed.”
Cheam Croquet & Bowls club is offering a six session croquet coaching course to members of the public. The cost of the course is £24 and the fee will be offset against the first years subscription for participants who subsequently join the Club.
The coaching course will take place at the Club, which is in Cheam Recreation Ground, Tudor Close, Cheam, SM3 8QS from 6pm - 8pm on the following dates:
Tuesday 28th June Thursday 30th June
Tuesday 5th July Thursday 7th July
Tuesday 12th July Thursday 14th July
Numbers are limited and places will be offered on a first come, first served basis.
To book your place or for further information contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0208 642 0533
Cheam Croquet & Bowling Club was open for business on Bank Holiday Monday.
Delicious teas were on offer, with home made cakes.
Tuition was on offer for Croquet and Bowls.
The Croquet & Bowls Club is open to everyone. All members are free to play either game and some do play both, especially the bowlers in the winter when they can play croquet but not bowls.
To join, please contact: Cheamcroquetbowlsclub@gmail.com or phone: 0208 642 0533.
As for a dress code, you don't need to worry about wearing whites. Casual dress is fine. So long as you wear flat shoes you can walk on the green
What a fantastic afternoon it was, at Cheam Village Fair.
The weather may not have been boiling hot, but that didn’t really matter. The crowds came and everyone enjoyed themselves.
Thank you to Cheam and Sutton Rotary Club who organised the event, raise thousands of pounds for local charities. All todays profits will go to The Royal Marsden and Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre.
I am told a record number of volunteers helped out at the Fair this year. Thank you to every one of you. It would not have been the success it was with out you.
The Centre Arena is packed with displays, including The Black Eagles – acrobats that include a fire limbo sequence in their performance. That’s on top of a Children’s Corner, Beer Tent, 50 stalls, selling everything from honey to plants, and handbags to cakes, Radio Jackie Roadshow, Funfair, Punch and Judy, a balloon race, coconut shy and hoopla.
It was first started in 1977, and today it’s one of the largest annual local community events. It’s a fun day out for everyone, especially families. What’s more, with new attractions and more stalls than ever, the Fair has grown year on year – some 6500 people attended in 2016.
This morning Sutton and Cheam Rotary Clubs are hard at work, setting up the Cheam Village Fair.
It will be open from 12:00 – 16:00 and the very good news is…I can see a Ferris Wheel!!

At long last, after far too long, work on Cheam Rec Pavilion Cafe is nearing completion. The majority of the building work was finished in September 2015, but resolving snagging problems took much longer.
I can’t help thinking that if it was my house, I would not have waited this long to see the problems overcome. I am aware that all three ward councillors chased Sutton Council, as did the proposed tenant.
The very good news is that three years after the Pavilion cafe closed because of a bad fire, it will soon be open hopefully by the end of June. Better still you will be able to sit inside and stay warm, rather than stand out side and shiver…And judging by the ice cream cabinet…They are selling Kellys Ice Cream….Looking good!!
After the very heavy rainfall over the past 48 hours, the Wickham Avenue culvert is helping to channel off a huge amount of water and preventing the properties in Wickham Avenue from flooding.
Many thanks to the Nonsuch Voles for digging out the ditch and culvert under the London Road and Sutton Council for providing the bridge.
