24th July: Launch of Parkforce and Green Flag Celebration

Haringey Council would like to invite you to a celebration of this year’s Green Flag Awards and launch of Parkforce – our innovative approach to park supervision.

The event will run from 1 – 3 pm (with speeches at 1.15) on Friday 24 July 2009 at Albert Road Recreation Ground, N22 in a marquee on the grass to the front of the Pavilion Café.

Albert Road Rec is situated between Bounds Green and Muswell Hill, close to Bounds Green Underground Station (Piccadilly Line) and on the 102, 184 and 299 bus routes that run past the park.

The event will provide an excellent opportunity for networking and information sharing. There will be representatives from Haringey Council, the Metropolitan Police, conservation charity BTCV and Haringey Friends of Parks Forum, as well as other partners and groups.

We would appreciate it if you could indicate whether you will be able to attend by replying to this email – so that we have an idea of numbers expected.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Work-in

Saturday 11th July 2:00pm
The Friends are having another work-in in the Lordship Woodlands nr Downhills Pk Rd to cut back the rest of the dogwood and overgrown shrubbery… It’s so much fun this will be the third time in 3 months! If you’re up for it bring secateurs or shears.

So there you are – something for everyone: creative photography, cutting and slashing, or just come along for moral support (and see you in the hut afterwards for a cup of tea!).

Photo Afternnon

Saturday 11th July 2:00pm

We are holding a photography afternoon on Saturday July 11th in the rec to meet up and walk around  taking photos of scenes in the rec  that we think best express how we feel about the rec. Our favourite  ones will go towards an exhibition called The Essence of the Rec to  be held as part of the Lordship Rec festival on September 12th.

We will meet at 2pm at the gate to the rec nearest to the Broadwater  Centre on Adams Road/Freedom Road and go off from there around the rec.

If you are feeling creative, then do come along.
