The Englefield Charitable Trust is once again supporting this year’s Party in the Park on Saturday 6th July at De Beauvoir Square from 2-5pm.
The Party in the Park is organised by the De Beauvoir Association and brings together families from across this part of Hackney for a community event with live music from local musicians and refreshments, including a BBQ, cake stalls, Pimms and ice cream.
This fun annual event, now in its 15th year, includes free entertainment and activities for local children, including a bouncy castle, face painting, flower crown making and new for this year, Hackney Play Streets, where residents close off their streets to through traffic, with the support of Hackney Council, so that children can play outside safely with balls, skipping ropes, hopscotch, bikes and chalk.
Kathryn Lowrie from De Beauvoir School will be joining this year’s event with a quiet storytelling corner for children to relax and listen to their favourite stories.
One of the party’s highlights will be returning for another year – the book and toy stall. Every child will be welcomed with a free toy or book, subject to availability, which have been kindly donated by local families whose children have grown out of them.
This year The De Beauvoir Flute Choir will be playing their first gig at the party, followed by Jane and Michael Keelan who will be playing a selection of ‘French café music’ on the flute and accordion.
The Englefield Charitable Trust supports a range of charities and initiatives in and around Berkshire and other areas connected to the Estate including De Beauvoir Town.
Catherine Haig of the Trust said: “Together with the team at The Benyon Estate, we have been keen supporters of this thriving community event, which brings people together for a day filled with fun activities for all ages. We’re proud once again to be able to help this fantastic initiative at the heart of De Beauvoir Town”.
