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.

 

 


         

Queen’s Park Gardens Fireworks!

5 November 2018 -GATES OPEN: 5:15pm • FIREWORKS: 6pm to 6:45pm

From QPCC:

Entrance to park (at Third Avenue) subject to capacity restrictions, with views just as good from Ilbert Street.

Four time credits per person give entry into the VIP area with the Community Champions.

As a result of the popularity of the event, this year there will be additional road closures and extra security to make sure the event continues to be safe. The following roads will but shut from 4pm onwards:

Ilbert Street – between Galton Street and Third Avenue
Fourth Avenue – between Ilbert Street and Enbrook Street
Third Avenue – between Kilravock and Caird
Bruckner Street – between Lancefield and Third will be resident access only.

Cars wanting to enter these roads between 4pm and the time the roads are declared safe for cars to pass through again (approximately 7pm) will be diverted onto surrounding roads. We kindly ask that residents move their cars from sections on Ilbert Street, Fourth Avenue and Third Avenue mentioned above.

Did you know? Whilst we invite people into the park to watch the display, views are just as good from Ilbert Street and toys are for sale in both places so please don’t rush home from work or feel disappointed in you don’t get into the park. You’ll still see the show!

Kindly supported by Douglas and Gordon and your Westminster City Ward Councillors.

Autumn 2018 chores

There are so many tasks as we move into Autumn.
Summer has been gloriously long but our trusty team had to button up against the weather during our weekend session.

Over the last couple of weeks we have been repositioning some scrubs, clearing away the deadwood, battling with bindweed and nurturing the colour that remains in the triangular bed.

 

 

 

        

Community Hub Autumn Timetable

The Queen’s Park Gardens Community Hub’s latest e-newsletter for Autumn is out now and it includes a timetable with all of their activities listed between now and January. 

The timetables are downloadable & can be viewed on any device, they are also grateful for donations made so please check out this link.

Public Meeting – Anti-Social Dog Owners

There will be a public meeting by the entrance to the dog run in Queen’s Park Gardens on Tuesday, 10th July at 5pm.

With regret we inform residents that an 11-month-old baby was recently attacked by a dog in Queen’s Park Gardens. The child is thankfully recovering with minor injuries.

In light of this event, Queen’s Park Community Council invite residents to discuss anti-social dog behaviour in the area and ways in which the current strategy in place could be improved.

Please join us, if you can, for an informal discussion at this stage. If you can’t join us please feel free to contact us with your views.

Lindsey Brown, Community Officer.

A Wonderful Saturday

We started the day with a lovely turnout of volunteers, whom we thank very much. Charlotte kindly donated more snowdrops which we’ve planted in hopes that they’ll be the first sign of next winter’s end.

Thanks must also go to Steve Mills of Continental Landscapes for arranging the loan of our very own Mr Rotavator’s favourite gardening tool.

Later on in the day, we joined the Queen’s Park Community Day in The New Avenues for an afternoon of fun and information.  Don’t forget how important it is to vote this May.

SNOW!

We realise the snow can make life difficult for some of our neighbours and testing for the birds but the park does look rather wonderful.

Please check on your neighbours to make sure they are warm and safe, and have enough food.

If all is well, take a look at these lovely photographs which Ray took earlier today.
