A Green Day Out in Waltham Abbey
Come and join us for a Green Day Out in Waltham Abbey!
Dave Plummer’s put together a great selection of community and Green Party related activities throughout the day including litter picking, surveying and action to help protect wildlife.
It’s King Harold Day too, celebrating Waltham Abbey and its history, which is worth a visit in its own right.
You can pick and mix which activities you want to do but the outline plan for the day is:
- 10.00am: meet at Dave’s, 21 Town Mead Road to chat and discuss the day ahead
Litter pick: walk to join the Waltham Abbey Litter Picking Posse for a litter pick, starting 11:00 am at Waltham Abbey McDonalds OR
Wildlife: join Waltham Abbey Community Campaigns with their #RuttingAwesome banner, to help reduce speeding and deer deaths during the rutting season
- 1.15pm: head to Abbey Gardens for the King Harold Day festival
- 2.30pm: help us find out about local people’s concerns with our 60 Second Surveys, or help with our campaign to get Electric Vehicle Charging Points in Waltham Abbey’s car parks.
- 4.30pm: meet at a local, independent cafe for a chat about the day.
- If you’d like to stick aroud afterwards we’re likely to head to Vintner & Mason on Sun Street for a small social.
That’s the general plan but you’re free to dip in and out of as many different activities as you like throughout the day.
By train/tube: the nearest train station is Waltham Cross which comes from Liverpool Street via Tottenham Hale, which is on the Victoria Line. Buses from the station (251 & 66) are quite regular but quite expensive. If there are more than two of you it’s probably worth getting a cab instead – there’s a cab office at the train station.
By cycle: we’re right next to Lee Valley Regional Park, which has a couple of superb cycle routes brining you straight into Waltham Abbey.
By car: Waltham Abbey is just off the M25’s Junction 26.
Come along to help Greens do what we do best – supporting our local communities.
