Abney Park User Group Walkabout

On a lovely Sunday in July a small group of Abney Park User Group members and other interested parties walked through the Park on the trail of the developments proposed for the Heritage Lottery Fund bid money we’re hoping to receive for Abney Park over the next couple of years. Recent changes in the HLF funding have meant that our bid is now competing with others even though we passed the first round with flying colours. All the current development work is being funded by HLF. For details of the proposals please continue reading.

Litter Picking at Abney Park

With all the great weather comes a corresponding rise in litter, sadly. We'd love you to join our band of litter-warriors dedicated to ensure Abney Park continues to look green and splendid. The Abney Park User Group monthly litter picking sessions allow you to put something back into the Park while taking a little out! We'll provide you with everything you need, but do wear sturdy shoes. The second Saturday of any month is the regular date. Get in touch if you have any queries.

Saturday 11th August, 10am
Gloves, litter pickers, bags provided

Meet at the main gates,
Stoke Newington High St
