BOST canot rely on volunteers to maintain the Water feature.
Millennium Green is in community management relying greatly on the work of volunteers for maintenance and management. Helen Firminger at BOST wrote to me last year "The team of homeless gardeners who have been carrying out regular volunteering for some years now, unfortunately due to funding cuts at St Mungo's they have now largely withdrawn and we are building up a new team of volunteers to carry out essential work.
Unless BOST have a local volunteer capable of installing and maintaining the water feature, they had better find a contractor who can.
A whole year has gone by with the feature out of action.
Why did BOST take this on if they were unable to maintain the green?
Who was responsible for the damage in the first place. Lambeth Council
workers evidently! So good luck to anyone who can get Lambeth Council
to act ethically!
I await a reply from Helen Firminger at BOST.....
