Beckenham Place Park summer activities

Activities for children in Beckenham Place Park

 

Dear Lewisham schools,

 

Attached and below is information about free activities that are taking place in Beckenham Place Park over the summer, particularly in the first week of the school holidays. I would be grateful if you are able to share it with students/parents at your school.

 

There is also the LBMX club every Sunday, 12-2pm, at the BMX track by Old Bromley Road entrance. Bikes and safety equipment available to borrow and a qualified coach is on site to help beginners get started or give tips on improving. Just turn up. First session free, donation of £2-3 thereafter.

 

Plus Saturday 18 August, guided bike rides at the park (see attached) – free. All welcome. Just need to book on Eventbrite as numbers limited.

 

Finally, Nordic walking are running a free taster session in BPP on 27th July 2.30 – 4pm.

Meet behind the mansion. Everyone welcome.  This is an event as part of London National Park City week. More info at: http://www.museumofwalking.org.uk/events/nordic-walking-beckenham-place-park/

 

It would be wonderful to have lots of Lewisham children making the most of the largest green space in Lewisham over the summer holidays. The park’s postcode is BR3 1SY and it is easily accessible on the bus eg 54 or trains to Beckenham Hill, Ravensbourne or Beckenham Junction.

Any questions please ask!

Thanks and kind regards

RGSA Summer Fete 30th June

A huge thank you to the organisers and volunteers who made our Summer Fete such a wonderful event. Over £5,000 was raised !

All are welcome to attend the RGSA Coffee Mornings to contribute suggestions for future events.

Moon Lane Inc Books & Bikeability

The children in Reception at Rushey Green were lucky enough to be one of the very few schools chosen in Lewisham to have received Balance Bike Training supplied by the company ‘Feet 2 Feet’ .  The children had fun learning new skills and improving their health and fitness.

The children in Reception have visited ‘Moon Lane books’ to have  a story telling session.  We had books read to us about Transport which the children really enjoyed.  We will definitely be visiting them again!

Lewisham Live Performance

The Choir were fantastic at Lewisham Live Performance last Tuesday – They were commended for singing a song with no backing track which was a difficult thing to do but they pulled it off perfectly and made Rushey Green proud.

AFRIL day

On the 1st of February both the children and parents learnt about AFRIL. Action for Refgugees in Lewisham. Thomas Martin from the organisation presented information about the experience of these families, and how AFRIL supports both adults and children, particularly those who speak English as a second language. He highlighted how as a community we can support each other and challenge negative stereotypes of refugee and asylum seekers. The children raised £348 through wearing their own clothes and donating £1. This money will help AFRIL support our local families who access their service. Well done Rushey Green!.
