CANONS PARK FUN DAY, SUNDAY 4 AUGUST 2019 Our next fun day promises to be our best yet, with involvement from other Harrow Parks and organisations serving the local community. Watch this space for more information as the year progresses. If you are interested in getting involved with forward planning or helping out on the day, please contact us via email@example.com (Please note that we do not accept any applications from commercial stallholders.)
CANONS PARK GARDENING CLUB Our lovely George V Memorial Garden is in need of some TLC!! Now that we have no park keeper, the council is only going to be cutting the grass during the year and tidying up the garden as and when it can. We desperately need keen gardeners - with or without experience - to help us return this little oasis of calm at the centre of the park to its former glory. Last year we formed a small but very effective gardening club that meets every other Sunday morning from early spring to late autumn, working from around 10am to 2pm - although everyone is welcome for whatever amount of time they can spare.
The sessions are sociable, fun and very rewarding. So far the group have cleared many of the overgrown flower beds and planted bulbs, bedding and perennial plants. Why not join them and make a real difference to the garden, for everyone to enjoy? All tools and equipment, including gardening gloves, are provided - or you can bring your own if you prefer - and we also provide light refreshments for tea breaks.
The gardening volunteers will start meeting again from March 2019, on Sundays from 10-12 pm (every other Sunday). If you are interested, please e-mail us and we will let you know when we will next meet: firstname.lastname@example.org
BIRD WATCHING WALKS The park is teeming with wildlife, especially birds! There are many varieties to watch out for and everyone is welcome to join the group, whatever their age or experience. Walks take place from 10am to 12pm on the first Sunday of every month except January (walk is on the second Sunday) and in July, August and September when the walks do not take place as the trees are too leafy. Meet at the Donnefield Avenue gates to Canons Park. All welcome! Bring binoculars if you have them and we suggest you wear comfortable shoes. Stay as long as you like and feel free to join the group if you spot them walking through the park.
