Tivoli Park has frequent problems with fresh water springs. The bog that used to develop each winter in the park was drained by the council but at times of high rainfall it still overflows on to Tivoli Road. The Friends of Tivoli Park will be discussing a flood management plan with council staff at 2pm on Saturday 8th March at 2pm in the Portobello Community room (opposite Corktree House SE27 0QE – Tivoli Park Flood Management Project Consultation – Venue Map).

Help is needed in Tivoli Park on Sunday 17th June at 12noon. The Friends of Tivoli Park have been given a big bag of wildflower seeds by the council to sow on the mound – the raised ground you see beyond the basketball court, by the ( currently dried-up) water feature. Will you help make this happen?
The first step is to prepare the ground by digging out some squares of turf, turning over the soil underneath and removing any weeds etc. It’s not too difficult – each square only takes about 10-15 minutes. Please email FriendsofTivoliPark@yahoo.co.uk if you can help on Sunday 17 June – and if you can bring a spade. Tivoli Park is between Knights Hill and Tivoli Road behind Furneaux Avenue and Dassett Road.
Later In July local people will be invited to re-weed the squares and sow the seeds. For details see http://friendsoftivolipark.blogspot.co.uk/

‘The Big Lunch’ is a nationwide day of community parties to offer the chance for neighbours of different generations and backgrounds to sit down to eat together and share stories, skills and interests. The organisers of big Lunch day say “We know that when people get together, we become more positive and start to sort out some serious stuff.
