Edmonton group

The Group has concentrated on improving the parks, recreation grounds and other open spaces in Lower and Upper Edmonton. The planting of trees in Golden Jubilee Park, Jubilee Park, Montagu Recreation Ground and, most recently, the Florence Hayes Children’s Adventure Playground has been funded by the Enfield Society. Donations have been given to the restoration funds for two listed buildings, All Saints Church and the Charity School Hall in Church Street, Edmonton, which are on English Heritage’s Buildings at Risk Register. The Heritage Trail information boards in that area are to be replaced at the expense of the Society.
