Plant trees in Slade Gardens

We're all invited over to Stockwell's Slade Gardens today, where the Friends of Slade Gardens will be planting eleven new trees including Horse Chestnut and Foxglove. The park itself is on the corner of Stockwell Park Road and Lorn Road and is perhaps not particularly well known to outsiders, and was housing and streets until 1944, when a V1 rocket destroyed a number of houses, killing 11 people.

After a number of years of buying up surrounding houses piecmeal, the Gardens finally opened in 1962 and have been enjoyed by locals ever since. All are invited to take part in the tree planting, and to join the Friends afterwards, at the Crown & Anchor pub for lunch and a drink.
