Great party!

Our 10th birthday party was a huge success. The pub was packed, and everyone had a great time.

Many thanks to Richard for hosting it at The Shakespeare, and giving us a very generous donation from the sale of the local beers.

Thanks too to Palavah (left) for the wonderful music. To Antonia for the lush chocolate birthday cake. And to Caroline for super dooper brownies and these photos of Tora and Maggie doing what they do best...

Come to our 10th birthday party this Saturday!!

Come and join us at a party to celebrate the tenth birthdays of the Shakespeare Residents Association and the Butterfield Green Users Group this Saturday.

We'll be raising a glass to all that we've achieved in the community and on Butterfield Green, and all the good friends we've made.

If you enjoy what we do, help us to do it, or have ever thought about joining us, come to the party. Share free food, great company, and fabulous music from local folk band Palaver.

And just to get you in the mood, here's our brilliant birthday cake, kindly made by Antonia, the Baking Queen of N16. Thanks, Ant!

Spring clearing

Thank you to local volunteers and to Graham Burnett who brings a group to Hackney every so often as part of his weekend perma-culture course.   He and his group made a great impact on Butterfield Green orchard and the planting bed on the corner of Albion Grove and Milton Grove.

Butterfield Green Notice Board Resurrected

The Butterfield Green User Group - BUG - enlisted the help of wood, concrete, digging, electronics,
art, music and  poetry experts Pen Mark and Phil.  Most, though not all, of these skills were used to re-erect the BUG noticeboard today.  The board has been painted  and varnished by BUG's own Bron.
The next Second Sunday Community Gardening day is Sunday 10th April 2016 2-4 pm.  Tools and gloves to borrow.

The Three Diggers

The beauty!
