Summer’s On Its Way (Allegedly)

Posted by Boundary Community Launderette on 27/05/2011

Another bank holiday weekend is upon us, marking the start of half-term and the summer. Make the most of it – there are no more bank holidays until August! We’ll be closed on Monday so our staff can enjoy a well deserved day off, (and the directors can have a break from locking up!), but we’re open Saturday and Sunday for you to get everything clean and fresh.

We’ve found a few things going on this weekend, and the first event of the year on Arnold Circus this Sunday, (details below), is a sign that summer really is on the way. For more ideas about things to do this weekend and over the half-term holidays, check out our links to the right.

If the weather stays fair, a walk around London can be a great way to spend some time and Walk London have organised the Spring Into Summer Weekend on Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th May. There are free guided walks all over London, from strolls through the City to rambles over the wild green spaces hiding in our midst. Take a look at their website for all the walks on offer.

On Saturday 28th May the Bethnal Green Museum of Childhood opens its Judith Kerr exhibition. This wonderful illustrator is responsible for such children’s classics as The Tiger Who Came to Tea and Mig, so this exhibition should appeal to all ages. Take a look at their website for all the details.

On Sunday 29th May the Friends of Arnold Circus have organised Arnold Day on Arnold Circus to celebrate the 178th ‘birthday’ of Arthur Arnold, the man who gave his name to Arnold Circus. There will be music provided by the  Pavilion Brass Band,  refreshments and other  fun things. It starts at 2.30 and finishes at 5pm. Check out the FOAC website  for full information and the Arnold & Henderson recipe for an Arnold Biscuit!
 

 

Finally, whatever you’re doing this weekend, when you’re out and about keep an eye out for kestrels. They’re one of the most common birds of prey in the capital, and we have at least one on the Boundary Estate. The  London Wildlife Trust is carrying out a Kestrel Count, so let them know if you spot any! Full information is on their website and we’ve even got a picture and description of kestrels and other birds on our Boundary wildlife page
