Volunteering opportnities in the Rec

Hey folks – why not check out some of the activities of members of the Friends of Lordship Rec, where we are helping maintain and improve various parts of the Rec. For example our litterpicking group, and working groups for the woodland and the orchard. The Hub also has many oppportunities for volunteering. Its fun, you learn new skills, meet people and help make a real difference. And its much appreciated by other park users!


New Shell Theatre Mural

The historic, Shell Theatre in Lordship Rec is having a fantastic makeover. Members of our community are helping to bring to life the stunning design of internationally renowned Tottenham artist, Camille Walala. The new look Shell is going to be the stage for many performance and music events throughout the Summer, starting with Blocko 22 on Saturday 25th June 12 noon and hopefully it will become a popular venue as it once was decades ago when it was a focal point for community activity.

Its based mainly on the work of the Friends and our various working groups over the last 15 years. See link below!

SPECIAL FILM SHOW at the Hub on Friday 24th June, 6.30pm. Did you know?  In the 1990s, before the Friends of Lordship Rec was set up, our very own Chair (Dave) and former Lordship Rec gardener (Helen) took on McDonald’s – the global junk food corporation – in what became the longest and one of the most controversial trials in English legal history, backed by a successful global mass defiance campaign? This month (June) will be the 25th anniversary of the ‘McLibel’ verdict. The whole incredible story was captured in an award-winning 90min documentary shown on BBC and around the world: ‘McLibel’.   Dave and Helen will be attending this special showing to answer questions etc. The room is likely to be full so if you want to attend please book free seats from Joan:
