Start the Year in the Park

Happy New Year!   We wish you all a very healthy 2019.

Astrid and the team are gardening in January and we’d love you to join us.

We are planning gardening sessions on Saturday 12th and Saturday 19th January between 10am and 1pm weather permitting (if it is raining it will be cancelled at short notice).

Hopefully we’ll see some of you at one session or another.  Any queries please use the contact form.

Please remember to take your completely undressed Christmas trees to the collection pen on Ilbert Street (by the Rose Garden gate). Do no fly-tip – it diverts council funds that could be better used elsewhere. Details Here.

A New Year’s Concert

We are thrilled to announce that Father David, of St John’s Church on Kilburn Lane, has chosen three local causes (of which we are one!) to benefit from a free classical concert from The Vaska Quartet, to be held in the church. The programme includes, Haydn, Handel, Mozart, Chopin and Mendelssohn.

It is taking place on Saturday, 26th January 2019 at 6pm, for one hour.

The concert and refreshments are sponsored by The Village Vet and there will be a retiring collection to benefit:

Real Action, the literacy charity based In Queen’s Park
The Queen’s Park Gardens Community Sports Hub and
The Friends of Queen’s Park Gardens

We would like to thank Father David for thinking of us.

Paths Refreshed

Thank you to everyone who joined us on Saturday morning in the chilly breeze.

The main purpose was to spread the wood chip generously given by tree surgeons working locally and the magnificent effort certainly warmed everyone up!

The paths look great and are much nicer to walk on now.

 

 


         

Joyful Winter Fair

            

What an uplifting afternoon everyone had at this year’s Winter Fair, with thanks to the organisers.

The music was joyful and there was so much to do: children’s decoration making with the QPCC,  Ulla’s wreath making workshop and tasty food treats, not to mention the donkey rides and petting zoo.

Thank you to everyone who paid us a visit, tried our quiz and took some herbs.
