The local community are involved to sample sporting games for adults and children at Shepherds Cot’s unique surroundings on June 24
Later this month, Crouch End’s Shepherds Cot Trust will invite the local community to come and sample sporting games for adults and children in its unique idyllic, natural surroundings.
As well as cricket and tennis activities throughout the afternoon, there will be a mega tug of war, a raffle and a kids’ treasure trail.
Little ones will also have the chance to check out a fire engine and local MP Catherine West will be coming along to hand out prizes and – who knows – to maybe try her hand at spin bowling or volleying at the net.
The Shepherds Cot Fun Day will take place on Sunday June 24 from 12 noon to 5 pm. The Cot is a rather special area of protected land between Park Road and Queens Wood, which is held in trust and given over to sports and recreational activities.

It is home to a number of cricket and tennis clubs, including its three member clubs, Hanley Tennis Club, Highgate Cricket and Tennis Club and North London Cricket Club.
Highgate Wood School is next to the Shepherds Cot and its car park will be open for visitors on the day.
