The Friends are having another work-in in the Lordship Woodlands nr Downhills Pk Rd to cut back the rest of the dogwood and overgrown shrubbery… It’s so much fun this will be the third time in 3 months! If you’re up for it bring secateurs or shears.

So there you are – something for everyone: creative photography, cutting and slashing, or just come along for moral support (and see you in the hut afterwards for a cup of tea!).

On Sunday 19th July 2009, The Big Lunch (an Eden Project initiative) is inviting 61 million people across the UK to simultaneously sit down to eat lunch with their neighbours, as a simple act of community.

The aim is to give people the tools to strengthen their communities through activities such as neighbourhood-watch; improving local amenities, taking care of the elderly or disabled; making imaginative improvements to the local environment and sharing resources. 

Haringey Council (Neighbourhood Management) is facilitating a Big Lunch on the green space of the Broadwater Farm Community Centre.  You, and members of your group, are warmly invited.
