The Apostles Residents' Association
The Apostles Residents' Association

The Apostles Residents Association is a member of the RAYNES PARK ASSOCIATION. The Raynes Park Association is a federation of local residents associations, businesses and other organisation in the Raynes Park Area. Its aim:

The Association will provide a focal point for enhancing the Raynes Park environment. This will be by addressing issues relating to the centre of Raynes Park, and other significant matters in the surrounding area which will affect people beyond the confines of a particular residents association's boundary. The Association will represent its views to relevant bodies and lobby for action as agreed by the Committee.

The Rainbow Estate is the large industrial estate bounded by railway line with sole access from the road next to the southern entrance to the station. The owners have received planning permission to redesign the estate incorporating residential properties. They argue that the revenue for making the site profitable requires them to make some money to fund this from the sale of residential properties.  As part of this development the road outside the station will be improved to provide what is called a ‘Kiss & Ride’ point.

However,  with all the uncertainties about CrossRail 2, we anticipate this project will be put on hold.  Unfortunately this also means a delay in any plans for improvements at the south of the station.

Raynes Park Station. The platforms have been extended to allow for 10 coach trains. These should be introduced by Christmas 2017.

Books on the Station. The scheme for providing books in the waiting room on platforms 3 and 4 of Raynes Park Station has proved very popular. However, there is always a need for more second-hand books. If you have any books you no longer need, please put them on the shelves on the station. If you need someone to take them to the station for you, call Chris Larkman (020 8542 0612) chrislarkman@gmail.com and he will be happy to assist.

 

Raynes Park Bereavement Service.  A Bereavement Service has been set up by Christ Church, Copse Hill. The service is open to anyone in the Raynes Park area. It is being run by trained volunteers who will offer people one to one sessions. To access the service call 07914 263420 or email raynesparkbereavement@gmail.com.
