It's great to read about Lloyd Park - Iused to go there regularly to play on the swings and the huge iron 'horse'............. in the 1930's........
I now live in Somerset and am Chairman of the Friends of Apex Park. We have had a green flag award for four years running and will be planting saplings on St George's Day to form a wind barrier round the skateboard park.
I wish you luck with your planting.
Is the gold fish pond still outside the William Morris house?
I used to go to William Morris Girls Central School when Ileft Blackhorse Road School.
I was the District Guide Captain for West Walthamstow for 8 years and Captain of the 1st Walthamstow Guide Company for 12 years.

Hi Joyce,

Nice to hear from someone who used to visit Lloyd Park so much. I hope you find time to come and see it now. The goldfish pond has gone and has been replaced with a flower bed. But we've now got lots of new trees in.

Lots of luck with your ongoing work in Apex Park.

Ellie

Hi Ellie, what a shame you got rid of the fish pond it's the best thing that I remember at Lloyds Park, the fish were the most memorable, and I am sorry they have gone, hopefully the moat is still there and the rose sensory garden. I loved the park I grew up in Bedord Road, and have great memories .

Hello again Barbara,

You should come and visit! We still have the moat (which we improved as part of the recent restoration) and it's teeming with invertebrate life.

We also have a new William Morris Garden, which is looking fantastic. I run a volunteer gardening project, so local people can help keep it looking great whilst imrpving their health and well-being.

KInd regards,

Ellie

Hi Elle I did visit three years ago, on one on my rare visits back to England, the park wasn't the same and I missed the fishpond but i live in Australia and swim with sharks now, a slightly bigger and more ferocious animal, do miss the goldfish though they were spectacular. Don't ever get rid of the moat, that was the best thing at the park, and I understand has historic significance., I have hope that it has National Trust protection.

Hi Barbara and Ellie - the moat brings back memories. I was one of the Walthamstow White Heather Dancers and we represented UNESCO - dancing English ,Scottish, Welsh and Irish folk dances at Saarbrucken and Luxemburg and on Eurovision - we did the whole programme in the theatre on the moat at Lloyd Park before we went.
When my eldest daughter was born in 1962 my husband was wheeling her pram proudly past the fish pond when a man ran after him - holding one of the wheels that had fallen off the pram....................
