Chainsaw wood carvers, stone carvers and a guided bat walk are being laid on this Saturday for a fun day in Abney Park.

There will also be a tour of the cemetery to celebrate the end of a project that has given this green oasis a new lease of life, and self-guided tree trail tours via new signs put in as part of the project.

The £50,000 revamp of the park began last autumn, and volunteers, including people with disabilities from Lee House have worked with staff from Abney Park Trust (APT) to improve plant trees and shrubs, increase habitats for plants, animals and bugs, repair and build benches and litter bins, repair key pathways.

Events run from noon until 3pm on Saturday in the park off Stoke Newington High Street.
