It was formed in London’s Shoreditch in spring 2004 through local voluntary action. The historic bandstand and gardens at the heart of Arnold Circus had fallen into disrepair and were widely seen as dirty and threatening. A small group of local people set about to rescue this unique part of the East End’s heritage, and to re-establish it as a resource for all. By spring 2006, membership had risen to 450 and our events – from brass band concerts to an annual Carrom championship – were attracting over 300 people to each.Our aim is to: create a public shared space for all. We will support the sensitive regeneration of the garden and bandstand and engage with local people so that this rich resource can be used, developed and enjoyed by all.FOAC is run by a board of Trustees who are elected once a year at the Annual General Meeting. The 2008 one was on June 12th. The current board consists of Naseem Khan OBE (Chair), Leila McAlister (Vice-Chair), Anna Salaman (Secretary), Jamie Scott Baxter (Treasurer), Ali Afsar, Jalal Aziz, Clarissa Cairns, Jobeda Khanum, Jean Locker and Sabeha Miah.We garden, work with schoolchildren and volunteers and run events. Our membership is free to all who share our aims, and we welcome people who would like to be involved practically.
