Here today, gone tomorrow

Sadly all good things must come to an end and so that fate befell this year beautiful NGD London pavilion. There was hardly a dry eye in the park as the pavilion came down in one epic weekend. Big thanks to all the volunteers who turned up to help.

The great news is that all* the wood has gone to a good home: either to local community garden groups keen to upgrade their planters, or to City Wood Services, an excellent organisation who collect, reuse and resell salvaged trees and timber.

*Ropey ol’ plywood treads are hard to shift for any sort of valuable reuse, so unfortunately went to landfill courtesy of Islington Council. If anyone has any ideas for getting another life out of the stuff, we’d love to hear from you so we can avoid this next time!

The pavilion is open for business!

After a final push by the whole team, through some miracle the pavilion was ready in time for opening today and even though we do say so ourselves, it looks pretty good!

Can’t say it enough times but thanks to everyone who’s supported us, all the volunteers that have given up countless hours and all the sponsors who make it possible.

Fortunately the pavilion is sticking around for a few more months so come down and check it out, walk over it and leave your message on one of the ribbons.
