We got gold!

We are so pleased to announce that we have maintained our Gold Award from Enfield In Bloom for the 3rd year running!  We were also awarded Silver for the Walled Garden, which is still being developed.  Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone that donated plants, bulbs and sponsorship to help us achieve this! 

 Fundraising Continues

We had an amazing summer with the fun day and 2 inflatable events.  Between them we raised £1852 towards new play equipment in the playground.  We still have a long way to go, but this is a great start!

Summer Fun Day 2018 

The sun shone bright for us last weekend at our fun day to raise money for the playground.  Thank you to everyone that came along, helped out, joined in the sponsored walk, or entered their dog into the dog show.  We hope everyone had a brilliant time.

Enfield in Bloom

The park has now entered into Enfield in Bloom.  Judging for this will take place after the London in Bloom competition, so please keep your plant and bulb donations coming.  We are so grateful for everything we have received so far.

Sponsored walk/run and fun day

Things are really coming together for this event on Sunday 5th August to raise money for new equipment for the play area.  Sponsorship forms will be available shortly, so you can get your friends and family sponsoring you for the walk/run around the park.  It is looking like it will be a brilliant community event.

London in Bloom - can you be part of a winning team?

We would love to win a gold award in both London in Bloom and Enfield in Bloom this year and you can help us!  Do you have any unwanted bulbs, can you donate a tray of bedding plants, or could you grow a tray of plants for us?  Please email friendofburylodge@yahoo.co.uk to arrange a drop off time, or pop into the office in the park any weekday morning. 

Love on the Rocks Enfield

Join in the fun in the park by decorating your rocks and hiding them for someone to find.  If you find a rock take a photo with it and post on the Love on the Rocks Enfield Facebook page, then re-hide it for someone else to find.  Get creative and get hunting!

We have an orchard! 

Thanks to our amazing community support we have raised £250 and have now planted apples, plums, pears and cherries in the walled garden.  A massive thank you to all the wonderful people who have sponsored fruit trees - Sarah, Nadine & Pepper, Ian & Trevor & Ellie, Joe & Chubby, Jack & Nova, Carol & Molly, Mayrem, Akmed & Milo, Bill, Mark & Fletcher, Paul & Teddy, Tracey, Julie & Dave, Smita, Sheila, Bridget, Steve, Yaren & Ebru, Caroline & Joey, Orella & Margaret, Howis & Hettie, Paula & Buddy, and Merrily & Ollie (sorry if we have missed anyone).  Without your support this wouldn't have been possible and we are very grateful!  Here is a pic of little Ellie with her freshly planted tree.

 

Easter Egg Hunt

Thank you to everyone that came to our annual Easter egg hunt, at great afternoon was had by all.  We raised £1000 towards the renovation of the playground. 

  

Refreshments coming soon

We have been able to raise money for hard standing to be put down on the field by the playground, this will allow room for an ice cream van to park up in the park to provide snacks.  So no more having to leave the park for a sneaky ice cream!

London in Bloom

We have entered 3 categories only this year, It's Your Neighbourhood, Small Parks and Walled Garden. We are currently doing all the heavy work to prepare for judging in June/mid-July.  If you fancy lending a hand on a Wednesday morning all help is welcome!

We are now on Instagram!
