May, 2018:

Maintenance Session this Saturday 19th May

We will be watering and topping up mulch to the new tree saplings this Saturday between 10.30 and 12.30. If you have a watering can, always handy to bring. We will meet by new tree plantings, on path from Bothy to the top of Vicars Hill.

Three Peaks History Walk

PASSING through Hilly Fields..but not organised by us.

If you are an avid walker, historian, urban explorer, or want to discover another part of London, do please join and help support Crofton Park Railway Garden. They will be leading an history walk from their garden on Saturday 26th May from 11am-1pm.

The Railway Garden will open at 10am for a chance to find out about the plans and get your Three Peaks maps. Activities will include:
Plant and harvest sale (kale, beans, sprouting broccoli, tomatoes, chilies, strawberries, and more) Sunflower kits for a sunflower competition – launching the competition for all the young ones for a chance to win a Grow Wild wildflower seed pack
Face-painting and the guided heritage walk

The recommended donation is £5/family. But please offer what ever you are able to; less or more, it all helps in the end. Or help volunteer instead at the next open day.
on behalf of the CPRG Friends Group

Farmers’ Market

If you want to buy fresh locally sourced vegetables that come free of plastic wrappings, then get to Hilly Fields this Saturday morning for the Whitegates Farm Stall. They also bring some lovely plants, which usually get snapped up early.

They’ll be set up by 10am and packing up for 3pm.
Marsh Meat also a Kent Farm will be selling alongside. Please support them, as their continued presence helps fund small projects in Hilly Fields.

Bank Holiday Monday – Bowls Club Open Day from 11am

LB of Lewisham do not permit BBQs in their parks.

WE don’t make the rules, but BBQs are not actually allowed in Hilly Fields or any park in Lewisham.

If we did make the rules, we’d say, DON’T burn the grass and take all your rubbish from hence it came..ie home. Where it can be most economically and successfully recycled in your wheelie bins.

SERIOUSLY, if you want your plastics, glass and tins recycling the best way to ensure this is to put them in a kerbside green wheelie bin.

This is what we’d like to avoid on a summer evening…with the best will in the world, Glendale can’t be emptying bins half way through the night and by the time the morning comes, the foxes will have checked it out.


Rubbish piled on a full bin in the play area
