Elderflower Picking Walk

Sat 5 June 2021

Eastbrookend Discovery Centre
(previously the Millenium Centre)
The Chase,
Romford RM7 0SS

We're going picking together again! The flowers are nearly fully out, so we're heading to Eastbrookend Country Park to forage for Elderflower to make delicious Barking & Dagenham sodas and cordials. We'll be walking around in socially distant groups, please let us know how many people you're bringing so that we can ensure we plan the event as safely as possible.

We’ll be meeting at the Eastbrookend Discovery Centre (formerly the Millenium Centre) at 1pm. Please wear comfortable shoes, check the forecast and bring waterproofs, sunscreen etc. We won’t be providing food and drinks for Covid safety reasons so feel free to bring your own packed lunch and plenty of water. Please note that we’ll be walking a little more than usual because the usable Elder trees are a little way further away this year, so consider this for accessibility. We recommend comfortable footwear and bringing walking sticks etc. Please let our team know if you need to take a seat or hang back. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
