Wormholt Park event this Sat: Walkies?!

The Friends of Wormholt Park
The Friends of Wormholt Park, who we last saw dressed in Edwardian attire and displaying photos of the Bush from times gone by in their very successful attempt to turn what was a dilapidated patch of ground into a central part of the community again, will be hosting an event called Walkies in the Park this Saturday.

As the name suggests this is about dogs. Often the scourge of parks thanks to their owners letting them crap all over them, this time the Friends are trying to combine the good side of dogs with their love of our local park. Here's what they have to say:

Come along with your dog and join in the fun that will be had at our Walkies in the Park event on Saturday 28 April. Starting at 11am, The Dogs Trust will be there with a range of exciting agility exercises for your dog, plus the police will be on hand offering FREE micro-chipping. Topping the day will be the dog competition starting at 1pm, overseen by international judge and breeder David Spencer. Registration is FREE on the day and there will be prizes for winners in the following categories:
  • Most handsome dog
  • Prettiest bitch
  • Dog most like its owner
  • Cleverest dog
  • Best in Show
Its not only for dog owners and there dogs, the day will have plenty for plant lovers too. Come and talk flowers/fruit&veg, perhaps donate some seedlings; stock up from the plant stall with some new herbs or get some advice from Hammersmith Community Gardens’ experts. 

The Friends of Wormholt Park will have its red gazebo up with refreshments available. We will also be holding our AGM starting at 11.30am. So, come and hear the review of our first year and be part of the community deciding future plans for our park. 

They have every reason to be very proud of their first year - go along and say hello.
