Lake Improvement work days

Hi all

We are working to improve the lake in the Rec with TCV on Monday 5th, Tuesday 6th and Wednesday 7th December using a grant we obtained from Trust for London

We are going to be preparing the lake for new planting early next year ready for the Spring. We will be constructing gabions, (metal cages full of stones) and positioning them along the inside edge of the lake ready for planting in Feb or March. We have chosen some new plants to go in the lake for next year which will create new habitats for wildlife, increase the health of the lake and also look lovely.

If we have time, we will also be constructing some new floating islands for the birds to use as nesting places.

Please feel free to come along and join in this outdoor work between 10am and 3pm on the above days.

Hoping to see you there!

New roof on Hub Terrace – Coming Soon!

Roofing over the Hub Terrace

The builders are starting work on the Hub Terrace on Friday 18th November, putting a weather-proof covering over the existing wooden structure. This means that the terrace will soon be a dry place to sit and enjoy food and drink from the Cafe. It also means that dog walkers will now not have to feel excluded from the Hub and can enjoy sitting on our dry terrace with their dogs.

It should be ready in a couple of weeks, weather permitting!

EXPLORE THE PARK, FIND THE MARKERS, COMPLETE THE CHALLENGE, HAVE FUN TOGETHER
 Xplorer is the perfect outdoor activity for primary and pre-school children and their families. It is a family friendly navigation challenge that is educational and fun and gives children a sense of adventure as they explore the park to find the markers. It involves a healthy mix of physical activity and decision making that the whole family can enjoy together. Using a simple map the aim is to find a number of markers that are located around the park. At each marker children need to identify what is pictured and enjoy learning a fun fact to tell their friends. Older children will have fun competing against their friends or other family members whilst younger children will enjoy the excitement of successfully finding the markers.

No experience of map reading is necessary and parents are encouraged to join in the fun!
Have fun together – Go Xplore!
