Families from Tower Hamlets attended a fun day, in spite of a morning of gales and downpours, focussed on health and well-being.
The day combined climbing sessions, with a nature discovery walk along the local New River path to the London Wildlife Trust’s recently opened Woodberry Wetlands, yoga, and garden activities - exploring the Castle Garden, seed sowing, harvesting leaves and herbs, making pizzas with healthy garden grown toppings, firing them in the cob oven and eating together at the end!

Since the beginning of 2015 over a million refugees have arrived by boat to the Greek Islands.
In that time over 600 000 life jackets and 10 000 rubber dinghies have been discarded on the shores of Lesvos.

Drop by on Saturday 18th June to take a fresh look at the garden accompanied by the poems of Ellen Cranitch, Poet in Residence for the day, and other poets.

There will also be art and crafts activities for children.
The Castle's new electronic billing application provides customers with the ability to electronically settle payment with ease.
There is no minimum sign up; you just pay monthly for climbing for as long as you like and then cancel it whenever. Very simple!
It costs exactly the same as the now defunct Direct Debit at £49 a month and is pro-rated on purchase.
