In case you didn’t already know, come rain or shine, we have the annual midsummer fayre this Saturday 18th June. It starts at 12noon and finishes at 5pm.
The Friends will have a stall this year, with a family quiz and information about lots of the plans we have for the future.
We were awarded a sustainability grant with our Wild About Play project. This is to encourage continued use of our project.
Part of the money was awarded for a story teller and we have finally managed to co-ordinate everything. The first session will be this Tuesday the 14th June. The first session of the day will be with children from Catherine House Nursery, but the remaining sessions (that is at 11am, 11.45am and 12.30pm) are open to all pre school children.
We will have a second day of story telling the following week on Monday 20th June.
Lewisham Council would be most grateful if you could find the time to complete their 2011 survey, before 17th June 2011.
I am told that there are also hard copies which can be found with the park keeper. His hours have been cut, so you won’t find him on Tuesdays or Wednesdays.
The Brockley Max event for children will be running this Saturday 4th June
Art in the Park 12-5pm Hilly Fields by the stone circle
