There will be the official opening of the playground during the Brockley Max event on Saturday 5th June.
We have arranged for a story teller for the under 8s from 12.30, probably doing two sessions over the following hour.
From 1pm we have arranged for a craft workshop.
We received funding for these events as part of our Changing Places grant from the Big Lottery.
The mayor turns up at 2pm.
We are pleased to announce that our new playground has opened. I don’t think I’ve ever seen it so full.
The playground gates returned to Hilly Fields today for fitting. The original artwork was done by last year by a year 2 class from Gordonbrock. Artist Sally Adams translated it into a gate design, and then Heather Burrell at APT studios in Deptford has worked the design into the gates.
Last Autumn we were busy planting the tulips donated to the Friends group by the Big Bulb Plant. They are now flowering and brightening up the entrance to the bowling green.

They were all back on site this Saturday, watering the grass and over seeding the gaps, making small adjustments to the timber work and sanding down. The rubber matting which goes over the grass and the gates are due next week. So fingers crossed for more rain to help the grass grow and deter late night revelers from rearranging the turf.
and just in case you forgot where we have come from…here is the scene last year.
