The Lewisham Rivers and People Project is coming to Hilly Fields. “The Hill Is Alive! Birds, Beasts and Wildflowers in an Urban Park” is the title of a walk taking place on Thursday 28 March starting at 10.30. Meet on the corner of Adelaide Avenue and Eastern Road. The walk will be led by Nick Bertrand, the legendary Deptford botanist, which means that expert and entertaining commentary about flowers and trees in the park is guaranteed. There will also be input on bird life from the Bird Champions group.
and thanks Tom, for eloquent write up, saves me having to think!
Keith’s funeral will be on Monday 25th March at 09:30 in Hither Green Crematorium Chapel, Verdant Lane, SE6 1JX.
It is the BIG DIG: Everyone is welcome to join us for some healthy, sociable exercise, planting the fruiting hedge. We’ll be in the park Saturday morning at 10.30. We will have some tools, but you are welcome to bring your own. Meet by the cafe and we’ll be heading to the orchard where ground has been prepared for planting (so more small dig required). Numbers permitting, we are also hoping to plant some hedging on the conservation area boundary.
When we have finished, there is a light lunch being served for hungry volunteers.
The hedge and lunch have been provided by the Tree Council.
Thank you to them.
At 1pm, the tree expert, Jon Stokes, will lead a tour of tree in Hilly Fields and Brockley. (organised by Brockley Society and the Brockley Street Wardens)
The first day of spring, came with the sad news that Keith our former park keeper, passed away last night. A lovely man, always helpful and kind, with a droll sense of humour.
