de Beauvoir Bunting and Abney Park – a secret wilderness

Hello everyone, in advance of next week’s meeting I thought I would post two picture udpates to keep everyone in the loop about what we’ve been up to.

De Beauvoir Bunting

Last Sunday saw a group of us, plus some kind helpers from the community, take over the hall at St. Peter’s Crypt for a marathon bunting making session. We had a massive amount of fabric donated so a big thank you to everyone who gave their unwanted material – we have enough now for many sewing projects to come. Here are a few pics including a very serious one of me taken by Victoria! You will have to wait until Party in the Park to see the bunting in all its glory.

Abney Park Cemetery

Monday night saw a group of us wrapped up warm (well except for me) meeting at the gates of Abney Park Cemetery for a tour of this wonderful and wild corner of Hackney. We spent a really interesting couple of hours exploring the history of Victorian Hackney through the story of the cemetery and the people buried there. It was fascinating, beautiful and just a little bit spooky. A huge thank you to Justina for organising the event. Please visit, support this haven for wildlife, take part in a course, a tour or one of their upcoming events – full details on their website.
