Dear Friends of Langtons Gardens and Fielders Field,
I hope that this email finds you all well.
We have so much going on right now, so please see our latest events list, attached.
Next week we have free nature and history walk and talk training, 2pm – 3pm on Tuesday, for you to learn how to deliver our walks and talks, and Debbie from the Havering Waste and Recycling team will be by the Greenhouse 12am-3pm to give you advice on recycling and wasting less.
Plus we will have our usual events next week: Volunteer open days on Monday and Tuesday; Di’s Diamonds over 50’s club on Tuesday; Pilates in the park plus the Havering BME forum meeting on Wednesday; and the fabulous Green Streets volunteer Team on Thursday and Friday have been building a community garden in our Orchard behind the Stable block, as well as growing plants to green up the entire borough!
You may notice we have a new temporary community artwork in the courtyard, in partnership with Havering Arts. The ‘Tree zine’ tree wrap piece is based on images created by a local school. Groups of young people have shared their histories of the local area with artists, as well as their own personal stories/memories, as a way for them to express their personal connection with the place. The piece is securely installed, and designed not to interfere with the tree.
And if you know of anyone who hasn’t already done so, please invite them to make an application for a stall at Langtons Garden’s fairs , including our new summer fair in August and Eco fair in September, using our online application form here: https://forms.gle/4iWQZ74Rhcdvv2fDA
And please ask them to email me when they have finished the application so that I can check.
But I’ve saved the best until last: our favourite event of the year organised by Havering Council, the popular Langtons Summer Concert returns, after a two year break, this Sunday 19th June, for an afternoon of grand entertainment.
Set in the delightful grounds of Langton Gardens, the Westminster Philharmonic Orchestra, led by conductor Jonathan Butcher, will perform a selection of light classics flavoured with music in celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Tickets for the concert, sponsored by West and Coe Funeral Directors and supported by Mullis and Peake LLP Solicitors and Moore Kingston Smith will cost £6 on the day but can be purchased in advance online for £4. Admission is free for children under 10.
No dogs allowed other than assistance dogs.
