Hackney Parks Newsletter

The Hackney Parks newsletter is a great source for news about all of the parks in Hackney, including Butterfield Green.

Some tidbits from the last Hackney Parks newsletter are below to whet your appetite!

Love Parks Week runs from the 24th July to 1st August next year. It is a campaign run by GreenSpace to get more people using and enjoying their local parks. We are keen to run a series of events in our parks during the week, and want you to come up with ideas. Previous events across the country have included dog shows, clean up days, fishing, teddy bears picnics, walks, volleyball tournaments, classical concerts, woodland crafts, art walks, fashion shows, mini beasting, kite making, a fish and chips cruise(!) and a groovy grasshoppers event(!) If you have an event suggestion, or want to offer to help run the week next year, please email Sam by the 7thOctober 2009. We are keen to get an outline programme together early to give us time to apply for funding/consult people and organise publicity in the new year. Click here to visit the Love Parks website.

Community gardening days take place in Butterfield Green Community Orchard and Park on the second Sunday of every month. All are welcome; tools and gloves are available to borrow and refreshments are provided. The next session is Sunday 13th September, 2-5pm. See the website for further information about the group.

There is lots more to to subscribe.
