Open Garden Squares Weekend 2011

OGSW poster 2011TNRA took part in this London-wide event again in 2011, opening Merrick Square and Trinity Church Square gardens to the public on Sunday 12 June. We added a Bike Event, offering free cycle checks, road training, maps and security advice.

Unfortunately the weather was not kind - it rained almost constantly throughout the day. This meant that the open air yoga session was cancelled and the bric-a-brac stalls suffered from lack of customers browsing.

However, we put up gazebos to shelter stalls and visitors, and the rain held off briefly during the cycle training. Amazingly, over 100 people visited the squares during the day. About half of these were OGSW visitors who were going round several squares.

Thanks to all who helped with setting up and taking down equipment for the events and to the local police team and On Your Bike for cycle advice, maintenance and training.
