Friends of Fairbridge
Project Category: Informal community group
Fairbridge Road Play Street and Growing a Community reply on the goodwill and dedication of a wide group of volunteers who want to make the street a friendlier and nicer place to live.
If you’d like to help out by street marshalling, setting up an activity or have any bright ideas contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to adopt a tree pit there is one currently available.
What they say about Fairbridge Road Play Street:
Play Street of The Year Award 2015
Activities run by residents every month are: arts and crafts for children, face painting/body art and a hot drinks stall, all free of charge. Past events include making a Friends of Fairbridge banner, making bunting, decorating the trees with recycled materials, making a junk modelling spaceship, Capital Cleanup litter collection, sowing seeds, free plants for your window box, tree pit planting and Christmas parties with carol singing. We regularly host visits from Hillrise Ward police, Hornsey Road Fire Brigade and Dr Bike.
Thank you to Islington Council for making the Play Street possible.
