APUG Abney Litter Pick

Winter, though warmish, is definitely on its way.  There's less of it around but we still don't want the rubbish to spoil our enjoyment of the Park, so do come and join us if you can. It's a splendid and much appreciated thing to do and  a nice way to meet new people. We'll provide you with everything you need (bags, gloves, litter-pickers) but wear sturdy shoes.

Saturday 8th December, 10am
Meet at the main gates,
Stoke Newington High St

Abney Park Autumn Fayre Update

Our annual Autumn Fayre on Saturday 20th October was a marvellous day and a huge success. Over 1900 people enjoyed perusing the various stalls, taking a chance on the fantastic tombola draw, enjoying wood carving and the plant workshops. The chapel was filled with music and song, shared with an enthusiastic audience. Abney Park Trust would like to thank all attendees and stall holders who gave their support - we managed to raise over £1100 towards future projects.

Autumn Forest School

Join In The Sticks for our Forest School at Abney Park this Autumn. We love Autumn - the wildlife is on the move, and seasonal changes can be observed and experienced. The abundance of natural materials like colourful leaves, shining conkers, bright red rose-hips and berries call for crafting. The cooler weather is also a perfect excuse for building fires and dens!
