Queen’s Park Wildlife Area Tea Party and Harrington Court Allotments

Queen’s Park Wildlife Area Tea Party and Harrington Court Allotments

We are very proud to be part of the Chelsea Fringe as on Saturday 23 May from 1 – 4pm you can see what the green fingered residents of Queen’s Park have been getting up to.

Visit Harrington Court Allotments and come along to our very first Garden Tea Party in the Wildlife Area at Queen’s Park Gardens.

While you have a drink and a piece of cake you can learn about what we’ve been doing in our local Wildlife Area. Try your hand at helping out with a bit of weeding while your children can join our take-a-seed-home planting project, and celebrate the grand opening (or possibly help out with the finishing touches to the barn-raising) of the Grand Marigold Bug Hotel!

9412558834_2c0c0b8b72_cWe will also be launching Queen’s Park in Bloom over the three week period of the Chelsea Fringe. If you live in Queen’s Park, and whether you’ve got a dazzling window box or spectacular front garden, entry is open from May 16 to 7 June. There will be a Winner and a Runner-Up Award in two separate categories: Best Front Garden and Best Window Box or Container (limited to two containers per entry).  Have a look at the winners from last year here.

You can find an entry form here or at the new Community Council website.

Alternatively,  pick up a form from Queen’s Park Library or the Beethoven Centre on Third Avenue. Please remember that you can enter your own garden and also nominate entries of friends, family and neighbours who may be shy of declaring their talents! Judging will take place the w/b Monday 15 June and prize-winners will be presented with their certificates at the Queen’s Park Festival on 1st  August
