EXPLORERS' PICNIC

Many thanks to the volunteers who worked at the 'sleeping beauty' woodland area at Tarling Road to start opening the area up by clearing away brambles and nettles.

This formed part of the "Explorers' Picnic" day on 5th August. We were pleased to work with the Faiths Forum for London, the Somali Bravanese Welfare Association and Barnet Council on this event. Find out more in this article from The Archer.
FUN PALACE
Thanks to everyone who supported the October Fun Palace at East Finchley library. Despite the rain it was a great event - we had around 500 visitors and over 90 Fun Palace makers. A couple of film crews were at work on the day, capturing the live music and activities - we are looking forward to sharing the footage with you soon.

Thanks also to everyone who took part in the consultation, we are gathering all your comments to feed into our plans for next year. We got some useful information on playgrounds, as well as comments on what you would like to see at the new Tarling Road community centre.
