We have a very exciting July out and about in Haringey with a new site as well as visits to some of our regular favourites. Please also join us for our annual summer BBQ at Railway Fields, it will be a right good knees up!

Remember it's fun, FREE and healthy plus you get FREE tea, coffee and biscuits.
