Sporting afternoon to celebrate Bush Hill Park's safety award
Teenagers are being encouraged to use an Enfield park celebrating a safety award with a sports-filled afternoon.
Football, archery, croquet, table-tennis and tai chi are among the free activities put on by the Friends of Bush Hill Park this afternoon to mark the park’s Safer Parks Gold Award.
The Mayor of Enfield, Councillor Kate Anolue, is at the park to formally unveil the award, which chair of the Friends group, Maria Tolley, hopes will encourage more youngsters to use the facilities.
She said: “We’re very keen to have a much busier park now it’s such a safe place to be.
“We’ve got the toddlers in with the play area but now we have to get teenagers using it so they can feel like it’s their park too.”
All equipment, including tennis racquets, table tennis bats, croquet mallets, balls, bows and arrows are being provided for free at the event, which runs from 11am-4pm.
