Spring on Weavers Field- Trim's very own park *

*Kind of

Now that spring is in the air it makes complete sense that we have our very own park. Ok, so we share it with the rest of Bethnal Green and Shoreditch, but that's just a testament to our generosity. Weaver's Field, which is conveniently located on our doorstep, offers us a lovely view from Tom's edit suit, and from our meeting/ breakfast table.

Named quite unambiguously after it's Weaving heritage, the park has historical links with the French Huguenot weavers. Many Huguenots, who'd fled religious persecution in France, lived in the houses on Darbyshire street where Trim is now located. You'll often see metal roundels depicting scissors, bobbins or buttons, on the pavements around here celebrating their waeving heritage.

More current on Weaver's Field is this year's annual Baishakhi Mela, celebrating Bengali New Year, which takes place on the 9th of May. There's always a fairground and plenty of Bengali performances that carry on into the night, followed by fireworks. So if you're working here on that weekend , and you finish cutting late, you could always go on the Booster or the Walzer.

Now that the weather's getting warmer we feel a Trim picnic in the air...Well in a month or so anyway. Watch this space.
