Smarten the Park – Headstone Manor Park, Harrow.
7th September 2021 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until 8th September 2021
Headstone Manor Park, in Harrow, is about to be officially re-opened after a huge transformation project which has seen the creation of a wetland, planting of trees & hedges, a new playground, 3 kms of new footpaths and picnic areas. The contractors are about to leave site and we have a bit of tidying up to do to get ready for the celebration events in September! Can you help us?
Join Thames21 & the Friends of Headstone Manor Park for one of our Smarten the Park days on 6th, 7th or 8th September from 10am – 3pm. (These are adult only events – we are running some family events too – keep an eye on the notice boards & https://www.thames21.org.uk/headstone-manor-park-events/)
Jobs include painting, cleaning signs & benches, weeding, cutting back vegetation, mulching, sweeping. Some jobs are more physical than others and there are tasks to suit everyone. Gloves & high vis jackets are provided & for tasks such as painting, protective clothing & eye protection. Please wear appropriate clothing for the activities and strong, sturdy footwear such as walking boots. If a clean up task requires accessing the shallow stream we can provide safety wellies.
Hot/ cold drinks and cakes/ biscuits provided & once the work is finished you will have a chance to visit the Headstone Manor & Museum, a moated medieval manor house which now houses a fantastic local history museum; and visit the new wetland areas (tbc). The Museum also has a cafe which serves sandwiches and some hot snacks. The Museum & cafe are open from 10am – 4pm. ( NB: the Museum is not open on Mondays)
