NEW VENUE

RNIB Sunshine House School

(
Map)

We have a NEW venue for our popular Annual London Gathering and this year it is being held on the first ever official International Albinism Awareness Day!
As usual, no need to book, just turn up!

Sunshine House School

Food

As usual for this event we ask that you bring your own food to BBQ and some puddings to share. We will be providing the BBQs (one for meat, one for veg and one for halal meat), buns, baps, sauces, relishes, salad, tea, coffee and squash.

Plan for the day

We will organise some entertainment for the children, time for adults to socialise and have a brief informal meeting to share the Fellowship's plans for the future.

Getting here by car

The school is within easy reach of the M25. Please note that Dene Rd is a leafy private road and doesn't look like a venue for a school.

Parking

The school has a car park and we will have signs on the entrance. Please be aware that there are other users of the school site arriving after 12:30 so to be sure of a parking place in the car park it might be wise to arrive earlyish. There is parking on the road but we have been asked to remind people NOT to park over neighbour's drives or on the grass verges.

Getting here by public transport

The nearest tube station is Northwood on the Metropolitan Line. It is about a 10 minute walk from the station to the school. Please note there is a flight of 26 steps to exit the station and no lift. Turn left out of the station and left again onto Green Lane . Turn right into Dene Rd and then turn left to stay on Dene Rd. At the left turn Dene Rd becomes a private road and has no pavements. The school is on your left. Please look out for signs for the way in to the event as we will NOT be using the main entrance to the school.
