Hello there! Will you be coming to the the Lordship Rec Community Festival on Saturday, 12th September?? Back 2 Earth have comandeered a whole section of the festival which will be centred around our annual Tottenham Flower and Produce Show. This is an opportunity for all of Haringey’s green-fingered gardeners, allotment owners and back-garden wonder workers to get involved and show how abundant this borough is for growing fresh produce. There are so many categories which people can enter, not just fruit and vegetables…

So if you didn’t know about our marquee then please have a look through the leaflets attached to this e-mail. And even if you don’t enter (even with categories for best weed, flower arranging, minature gardens, jam making etc), we’d love you to come along on the day, to see some beautiful flowers and produce. And join in with the general community atmosphere. There is a lot going on, literally, fun for all the family.

We hope to see you there

Friends of Lordship Rec – Woodlands Sub-Group

On Sunday around 8 of us had a work-in in the woodland in Lordship Rec (near the Downhills Park Rd gate) to continue our efforts to thin out some of the dense shrubs and remove dogwood.

There will be a site visit at the Woodland on Monday 24th August, 9.30am.

We will be meeting up with the Council’s Conservation Officer, Ian Holt, to discuss how we can help manage the woodland for nature conservation purposes whilst ensuring it is attractive for visitors.

All who wish to get involved in the sub-group are welcome!

Invitation to all local community groups
Once again the Lordship Rec Users Forum is organising its annual community festival and we’re inviting you and your members to get involved! Last year 3,000 people attended and participated (see below for a report). The festival is a key part of the ongoing efforts to showcase the potential of the park, encourage greater usage, continue to develop community-led partnership working, and to pursue the regeneration of Tottenham’s largest green open space.
