Following a day time meeting last week the council has arranged a further meeting for Thursday 3 October 7pm- 9pm at Elmgreen School, Elmcourt Road, SE27 9BZ (near Tulse Hill rail station). Come along and have your say about th future of our local parks.

Do you use your local parks?
Cllr. Jane Pickard at Streatham Common
Many of our nearby parks are supported by ‘friends’ groups made up of local residents. With the heavy spending cuts imposed on councils by the Tory/Lib Dem coalition government the costs of all public services will be under review. If you care about your local park this is a good time to join up with other like minded people and make a difference to the running of your favourite park now and in the future.
