Our Christmas music concert this year will take place on the evening of Thursday 20th December.
Further details to follow.
Here are some photographs from the CPRA evening at Chester Golf Club.
CPRA wouldn’t exist without the active participation of a cross-section of residents. Volunteering for a role is not an indefinite commitment so, inevitably, there’s a regular need for new participants to step forward.
Our newsletter editor, Amanda White, wishes to stand down after six years in the job, so we’re looking for a new editor to take Amanda’s place – if you’re interested in helping to sustain what has become an invaluable community asset, please contact chairman, Jim Shapton via email@example.com
or call him on 07780 516890 without obligation, to find out more.
It’s not a complex job, but it would be helpful if you have good writing skills and grammar/spelling – more important is enthusiasm and a willingness to learn if you’re not confident of your skills. Writing features is not an obligation; it’s primarily a matter of collating inputs from others. Amanda will be happy to provide guidance in the early stages It’s good fun working with the Management Committee and getting to hear about what’s going on in Curzon Park first-hand.
Alternatively, would you be willing to fill a vacancy on our Management Committee? Membership of the MC involves no commitment other than to attend as many of its evening meetings (at 6-8 week intervals) as you are able. The important thing is that we have a variety of views from as good a spread of residents, both geographically and age-wise, as possible. Again, contact Jim Shapton as above if you are interested
The CPRA Second Garden Trail took place on Saturday 30th June. The weather was wonderful all day and the Trail enjoyed by all members participating.
Four very different gardens were opened and all spectacular in their own special way.
Our thanks go to the owners for sharing them with the members attending.
Jacky and Christine hope to hold another CPRA Garden Trail in 2019 and if you would be willing to open your garden please contact one of them.
Here is a list of upcoming walks:

We arrived on Angelsey and were welcomed at the gate of Plas Cadnant by the owner Anthony Tavernor who gave us some fascinating background to the gardens and its restoration which had taken him about 20 years.
After refreshments we began our journey around the beautiful interesting and amazingly planted gardens. They blended into the background natural beauty of the Estate Park with waterfalls and fabulous views. A truly magical place.
We then went to Beaumaris for marvellous views of the straits and Snowdonia and a little sightseeing. Unfortunately we missed the sun but had a good journey home along the coast. A lovely day.
