Queen’s Park Wildlife Area Tea Party and Harrington Court Allotments
Sat 23 May, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm BSTFree
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 cup of tea 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 in with 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!
We 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).
Seek out an entry form online at either Queen’s Park Community Council or the Friends of Queen’s Park websites or pick up a form (and make sure to pick up a copy your Chelsea Fringe Map) 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 in August.
