I picked up a flyer in the fabulous Minet Library the other day which I thought would be of wider interest.
Its about an event in Myatt’s Fields Park between Camberwell New Road and Coldharbour Lane in the Lambeth part of Camberwell.
The park, as I’m sure you’re aware, has undergone a transformation over the past few years with a new children’s playground, new children’s centre, new cafe and redevelopment of the grounds. The transformation is almost complete — with the last few buildings opening in September. This is a great Camberwell success story achieved by local people working with Lambeth Council with funding from the National Lottery.
This Saturday 14 August in Myatt’s Fields Park there will be Indian barbecue with music, dance and food. Come along to the area around the bandstand 5–7pm — flyer below.
Music every Sunday
At 2pm every Sunday though the summer there is music in the bandstand — this week Javanese band Siswa Sukra will be playing. The Little Cat Cafe is open Wednesday — Sunday selling snacks, home made cakes and other refreshments.
And also this Sunday Come and volunteer in the park: wildlife area gardening day
This Saturday 14 August 11am – 3pm volunteers are needed to help us maintain the wildlife garden. Everyone and all ages welcome. Meet at the wildlife area. Wear suitable clothing
This is Camberwell at its best.
The Myatts Fields Park Group’s website doesnt seem to have been updated for a while — if you want further information your best bet is to sign up for the email bulletins from Victoria Sherwin at Lambeth (email firstname.lastname@example.org)
