What is the Furzedown Community Network?

The Furzedown Community Network (FCN), is made up of local people keen to promote a sense of community and help make Furzedown – an area and local government ward between Streatham and Tooting in South West London – a good place to live, work and play.

We work to improve our neighbourhood, which includes organising events including the annual Furzedown Summer Festival and Christmas Market and smaller events such as quiz nights. The activities undertaken reflect the interests and energy of the group members who organise them.

There is an annual general meeting which meets early in the year to elect the committee and discuss other issues.

Local businesses support us in various ways and give discounts to our members.

Communication between members of the Furzedown Community takes place on a groups.io group – to join send a blank email to furzedown+subscribe@groups.io

We are also on Facebook and Twitter 


Feel free to donate to the FCN via Paypal if you wish to support local events such as the Festival in June.
