Today, between 10am and 8pm, there will be fun for the whole family in the borough's 'hinterlands' - along the Lea Navigation towpath.

All free, courtesy of the Canal and Rivers Trust and Enfield Climate Action Forum.

Jason Chrysostomou tells Enfield Climate Action Forum about The Big One - a four-day demonstration in central London (21 to 24 April) aimed at Parliament.
