It’s been an exciting year for Iconic . One of our stylists Georgia Wild entered a major Hairdressing competition called Colorzoom hosted by Goldwell UK . She had a photo shoot in May and went on to win the New Talent Colorist Category 2016 held at the Guildhall in July. Her prize was to go to Stockholm where she was to represent the U.K. in a global competition. There were 36 countries taking part in a live competition in the Globe . We are delighted to say she won the silver award coming second in her category.
We are extremely proud!
The Friends of Cheam Park, are planning to plant more Trees on Cheam Rec. This is to not only enhance the Rec, but also create a more wildlife friendly area and as the trees grown, will reduce the amount of water run off from Cheam Rec.
We have 40, 5 year old trees, which stand at around 1.5 – 2 meters high and over 100 saplings, which will only need to be dug in with a trowel.
The Friends of Cheam Park, with the help of local residents have now planted over 200 trees on the Rec. They have made a real difference the area. They make what was a very boring part of the Rec, with just mown grass, a real feature, which people take pleasure in visiting.
We are also hoping to secure funding for a footpath to go across the Rec, connecting the pavilion with the path down into Nonsuch Woods. All of which will make the Rec more accessible. It will also make it easier for families to walk to Little Oaks from North Cheam, rather than have to drive.
It will be on Saturday 26th November at 10 – 1pm.
Cheam Chamber of Trade
The Chamber’s Late Night Shopping Event attracts over 3,000 visitors to the Village every year.
The Event is held on the evening of the first Friday of December and falls this year on the 2nd of December 2016.
This year’s theme is Pirates and will feature Actors from SAVVY Theatre Company performing a A Mini Pirate Panto culminating in switching on the Christmas tree lights at the Cheam War Memorial Green outside Cheam Library. The evening will include various sub events at Cheam Library, Cheam Baptist Church and at shops and venues In the Village. Radio Jackie will provide music and entertainment on the night and there will be up to 30 stalls with crafts, toys, jewellery, wood products and various food and drink on offer. Fairground rides and children’s activities will also be in place. Radio Jackie’s Mobile unit Van will add to the Entertainment.
The event costs several thousand pounds to produce, even though all the work is put in by volunteers and traders and so we are looking for an increased level and number of sponsors. This is an opportunity for the businesses in Cheam to enhance their branding and presence and to contribute to the welfare of the local community.
The Sponsorships will be tiered into the following groups
- Principal Sponsor – £ 750 – Traditionally offered to Smith and Byford

We would like to finalise all sponsors before the 31st October 2016 so that we can confirm and pay for the Event arrangements.
