Greening LJ – this Sunday 8 November!!!

There is a plan afoot to green – or perhaps colour – Loughborough Junction next spring by planting bulbs around the place this weekend. Some local businesses have agreed to have their plots bulbed and there are spaces here and there….

To get the bulbs we need donations! Donations of bulbs would be great, but donations of money are also acceptable if you prefer to contribute that way, as we can make a quick visit to a garden centre.

If you can provide either bulbs or money, please come to the Cambria this Sunday 8 November 1-2 pm where the gardeners will be there to collect them for planting Sunday afternoon.

Volunteers to plant the bulbs are also very welcome, probably best if you bring your own trowel, fork, whatever.

See you there!

The Ebony Horse Club has existed for ten years in Brixton and it provides access to top quality horse riding instruction and mentoring for young people aged eight to seventeen years old. The club targets young people in danger of social exclusion, whether through school exclusion, home circumstances, health, or poverty.

The club is now planning a major expansion to build a top class horse riding facility at Loughborough Junction.
The Ebony Horse Club is Britain’s biggest provider of access to horse riding for ethnic minorities and the kids trained by the club learn important skills in working co-operatively together.
