Getting there on Saturday

The day is nearly upon us, here's a quick reminder of when, where, how, what, why it all takes place.

The Fattylympics
Saturday 7 July 2012

Grassroots Resource Centre
Memorial Park
Memorial Avenue
West Ham

How to get there

Public transport:

West Ham Station is very close by and is served by the Jubilee, District and Hammersmith and City underground lines. It is also accessible via the DLR and is on the c2c line which goes from Liverpool Street to Shoeburyness.

The 276 and 323 buses stop close by.

Use the Transport for London Journey Planner to help you get there.

Private transport:

There is free parking on the streets by Memorial Park, and behind the Grassroots building. There is level access from the car park to the Grassroots building via a gate. If the gate is shut, call the reception at Grassroots and they will open it for you. The number is 0207 474 6376.

There are secure bike racks, and buggy racks for people with children, right in front of Grassroots.

What to bring

The Fattylympics will go ahead come rain or shine, but you might want to check the forecast. Looks like we'll need brollies and sunscreen.

Refreshments will be available to buy, you're also welcome to bring your own but please take your litter home with you.

Got kids? There are a couple of lovely play parks close to the venue.

Got a bad attitude? Leave it at home please.

Got last-minute questions? Send them to

  1. The car park is small and will fill up early. There are marked bays for disabled people. There is also free on street parking on Grange Road.
