Bat Walk - Saturday 12th September

It was time to go bats!

Thanks to to Dr Iain Boulton of the London Bat Group and the 50 or so people who turned out
for our second Blythe Hill Fields Bat Walk. It was great to learn about the Britsh Bats, the sounds
they make and trying to find them with bat detectors!

Trim Trail - NOW INSTALLED !!

We are delighted to announce the arrival of the long-awaited Trim Trail. These pieces of outdoor
fitness equipment are manufactured from sustainable timber and were chosen for their quality
and ability to blend in with the park's natural environment. It is another positive intervention by the
Friends for everyone to enjoy. Please have a try and enjoy this fantastic new resource.

The equipment was purchased with a BIG Lottery Grant, a private donation and funds generated from the annual
Blythe Hill Fields Festival. The application was supported by Lewisham Council and Glendale.

We are grateful to everyone who has worked on and supported
this project.

Great to see adults and children all enjoying it already. Pictures: Ellie Rogers and Fitness for Mummies
