That’s what BTCV stands for. We had a walk in Finsbury Park this morning. Remember that the London 2012 borough of Waltham Forest (who’d have known?) has joined up with LB Haringey. Who actually knows that except the greens? So at long last I got to include myself in a wonderful experience in North London. Finsbury Park is like a dead beast full of maggots on a Sunday morning: The place is heaving. All sorts of running groups, American Football going on, open air gym, cafe, kiddies’ playgrounds, laid-out gardens, squirrels, Canada Geese, moorhen, Mallards, dogs on leads, and the sun shone brightly.
Before all of that I passed through Clapton Pond, Hackney and the new leaves are streaming on the willows there. Blossom all the way to Manor House and Purim craziness going on from Amhurst Park to Lower Clapton. Good day. Wanted to stop at Grodzinski’s for some poppy seed cake but next year maybe.
Spent time this weekend too at Open Stage 2012 Theatre Royal Stratford east E15 .What a project! We volunteer to work in the surrounding community to uphold the original ethos of TRSE as outlined by Joan Littlewood. This time we had another opportunity to go backstage , to see the hemp house with the massive manilla ropes. There’s one particular heavy rope which only one woman has ever pulled. Hey ho! I also pulled that bugger. Trumpet fanfare ….Gym paying off .
Back to my reading today “East Of Eden” for tomorrow is reading group at Homerton Library in Brooksby’s Walk, Hackney.Love that book. Love Homerton too.
Minty off Eastenders is coming to Downsell Park, Tottenham N 15 on March 28th 2pm to open the cafe there. Eastenders post code is E20….so is the new build part of Stratford east i .e. Westfields etc.
