the Friends of Blaker's Park for Thursday 21st October. Everyone is
It starts at 6.30 pm by the clock tower in Blaker's Park with a
guided Tour of the Trees by a local expert.
At 7.30 pm the event moves into Stanford Avenue Methodist Church, on
the corner with Southdown Avenue, where a variety of special guests
will be giving short talks all about our community park.
"A leading archaeologist has been asked to tell us about stone age
man in Blaker's Park," says Max Glaskin, chair of the Friends, "Then
there's a five thousand year leap to learn about Victorian parks from
Rose Collis, the editor of the New Encyclopaedia of Brighton. After
that our park ranger Emma Owen will bring us bang up to date with news
of her work."
You, your friends and family may appear in a special slide show
about the park events of 2010. Local musicians are being asked to
perform and there will certainly be free refreshments.
"It's the first time we've organised such an eventful evening," says
Max. "It's got something for everyone – and it will give everyone
another chance to enjoy our special little park."
