Xplorer in the Rec
Christmas Holiday Fun. Work up an appetite and explore Lordship Recreation Ground as you challenge your map reading skills in this free and fun adventure! For children and families.
Pick up your map and information in the Hub. There are 2 challenges to choose from. Challenge 1 has 15 markers to find and you need to identify the animal on the marker. Challenge 2 has 10 markers and you need to identify the animal that is pictured.
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!

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!

invitation to help control thistles on Friday, 12th July
You are cordially invited to join us this Friday at 2pm in the Hub cafe. We will go to together to the ‘picnic area’ in the Rec (just south of the Model Traffic Area – Walpole Rd/Rusper Road entrance) where we will cut thistles and docks and put the tops in bags to prevent the area being covered in these next year.
We will provide bags, gloves and seccateurs unless you have your own in which case please bring them. We don’t have to stay long but it would be great if you come.
