Its been a long haul. Friends of Archbishops Park have been working for over two years to protect SE1s largest green space. The Church Commissioner's are stalling on a new lease, but we have managed to raise 35,000 for a management plan, and in partnership with Lambeth have commissioned Landscape Design Associates to do the work. We understand that should the community support the plan, there will be significant money for its implementation.

Anyway Sat 21 Sept is the big consultation day. We cannot promise anything big, as we are simply local people. But plenty of home made cakes, facepainting and races for the kids. Roots and Shoots a brilliant local gardening project will do a nature walk and we are putting some other interesting things together, including some art activity for children.

First come along and give your views on the importance of green space in the area. If you don't know the park find it: the easiest entrance is opposite St Thomas' A&E. And bring something for the tombola or a home made cake. And if you are an entertainer, artist, or musician we would love more ideas.

There will be a football tournament from 10.00am for 6-16 year olds run by Fulham Football in the Community. Followed by the main events for 14.00-17.00.

See you,

Have you read "London Bridges" by Jane Stevenson? I thought it might be of interest because it's a novel about, amongst other things, a group of people who save some open space owned by the church for the community.
