Lordship Recreation Ground Consultation Event
Friday 27th & Saturday 28th February 2009 11am to 3pm

At the Jazz Café, Broadwater Farm Community Centre
1 Adams Road, London N17 6HE

Dear All,
You are invited to attend a special consultation event surrounding the regeneration of Lordship Recreation Ground. We’re seeking your opinions about designs for the new City Farm and Eco-Centre, as well as the revised plans for the park as a whole.

To answer any questions the following will be present on the Friday: the architects and designers, officers from Recreation Services and Neighbourhood Management, reps from Back To Earth (who will be managing the new facilities) and members of the Friends of Lordship Rec. On the Saturday, it will mainly be the reps from Back To Earth and the Friends of Lordship Rec.

There will also be information about the new proposals for the merger of the current Broadwater Farm schools and Children’s Centre by rebuilding them and creating an integrated learning campus at the site.

The event will take place in the Jazz Cafe, where there will also be gorgeous home-cooked meals made by local residents (available to buy at very cheap prices), as well as the Tottenham Food Co-op market stalls (with a range of organic vegetables and other products).

So all in all its going to be an exciting and highly informative event.

Please come along, have you say and help shape the future of your local park!!!
