Here’s all you need to know to have a cracking Easter in Nine Elms!
The Easter Bank Holiday weekend falls from Friday 2 April to Monday 5 April this year.
Make sure to check council services in Wandsworth at this time as there may be changes to your usual services. If you live in Lambeth, check the Lambeth Council website for local service updates.
Looking to explore central London this week? Uberboat by Thames Clippers is sailing again from Battersea Power Station Pier and they’re operating a bar takeaway service too.
The river path is also a great route for a holiday walk, check out our brilliant map showing all of the local artwork and hotspots you can visit. Or visit nearby Battersea Park for a stroll around the lake and spring flower beds.
Remember to shop local – local businesses need your support now more than ever. Check out Nine Elms businesses on My Virtual Neighbourhood to see if you can order online for delivery or collection.
If you’re looking for activities to take part in, there are online Easter bunny life drawing classes with Vauxhall City Farm on Friday 2 April.
Or for those aged 14+, Write Together, a fun project where you can order a free kit to get creative and send a kind message to a Nine Elms neighbour is still open. Get involved and order your free Write Together kit today.
Boost your endorphins with Battersea Power Station’s online Spring into Spring classes, running until 11 April.
