We appeared in the Guardian this weekend as a fine example of DIY culture; a growing trend despite depressing chains and consumerist values. Pop down for a pizza soon Josie !!

Pizza Oven Love In

December 8, 2014 at 5:03 pm (Uncategorized)

Linda and co from Cob in the Community came down in November to help us build our cob pizza oven. Lots of hard graft mixing the clay. The kids enjoyed stamping the sand into the mud. The second day the oven grew into a beautiful community work of art.

Summer Playscheme 2014!

September 7, 2014 at 11:33 am (Uncategorized)

 The August Summer play scheme was once again a fantastic affair, children and parents relaxed, played games, ate together and enjoyed our wonderful green space by the River Lea. The new sandpit was christened and the Willow Dome provided role play and adventures.

Thanks to Hackney Playbus, Claire and Co, and to Universal Board Games’ Vicky and Mem.

SUMMER SOLSTICE CELEBRATION
Today at 6 pm at the Garden!

Solstice

The June solstice marks the first day of the summer season in the northern hemisphere. The word solstice is from the Latin word “solstitium”, meaning “sun-stopping”, because the point at which the sun appears to rise and set stops and reverses direction after this day. On this day, the sun does not rise precisely in the east, but rises to the north of east and sets to the north of west allowing it to be in the sky for a longer period of time. In the southern hemisphere, the June solstice is known as the shortest day of the year. It is when the sun has reached its furthest point from the equator and marks the first day of winter.

Smart Club in the Robin Hood Garden Easter 2014

April 20, 2014 at 4:45 pm (Uncategorized)

UBG ran 3 days of play, board games, sports and arts in the garden this Easter week with funding from High Hill Residents Association. Monday was wet and windy but we still had 30 young people and parents in the garden and the high hill cage playing board games; Mancala, Sleeping Queens and Wanted, skipping in the garden in between rain showers and playing cricket in the cage, which was very popular among the older boys. The young people aged 5-15 were all local, a lot from High Hill Guinness and Hackney homes sides. Wednesday was a really hot sunny day everyone turned up early to help set up the gazebo and games. We did all the same stuff as Monday with added watering, more skipping with one of the dads who turned out to be pretty light on his feet and a big hockey game in the garden. The face paints came out on Wednesday with lots of groovy tattoos. Friday was another sunny day lots of games played and big team games on the square; sharks, my team, relays and hockey; more cricket in the cage this time with even more players before the big egg hunt in the garden. The eggs were ‘eggspertly’ hidden by two volunteers mums and the younger children got a whole minutes head start. Many thanks to Yavonne at HHRA for helping to make this week happen, it was a great success with up to 30 young people and parents attending everyday, some familiar faces with lots of new faces. It was also a great promotion for the summer playdays which will happen in August which the young people are already looking forward to.
