The Lordship Litterpickers meet every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month at 10am by the Hub to tackle the more out of the way litter problem areas in the Rec. We have limited litter picking equipment and adhere to strict social distancing and covid safety rules so it is important to get in touch if you want to take part, text Caroline on: 07914641167.
Happy New Year to all our members and park users.
Hoping that things will be better by the Summer so that we can celebrate the work of the Friends of Lordship Rec which will be 20yrs old in June 2021!
Contractors will be on site on Tuesday 24th November to carry out vegetation clearance in the Moselle River channel and to clear the trash screen at the Broadwater Farm end and to do the winter siltex application (this is to break down the silt). This work will help the river flow better and wash through some of the unsightly surface. The team should be on site for 2 days arriving mid-morning tomorrow.
This is part of an ongoing yearly maintenance plan that should gradually improve the water quality and enjoyment of the river. Continue reading “Clearing and Cleaning the Moselle”

We are sad to report the passing away of Mal Hawley, the former Secretary of the Friends of Downhills and an active participant in many Friends of Lordship Rec activities and meetings in the last 10 years. In his life he had travelled widely, was an experienced carpenter, played double bass for jazz bands, made unorthodox musical instruments and was very keen on wildlife (including organising annual bird and butterfly counts in Lordship Rec and Downhills Park). Mal was kind, thoughtful and committed to a better society, with a lifelong love of music and people. Full tribute here: Mal Hawley Tribute & Celebration of His Life

Here is our tribute to you all :
Have a look at the Hub Huddle, a blog put together to keep people connected to the Hub and the park while the Hub is closed. Packed full of history, volunteering, nature facts and conservation ideas.
The Hub Huddle
Please support and share the Lordship Hub crowdfunder appeal. This is important as Lordship Hub is the beating Heart of Lordship Rec and the park needs it to survive.
