IT'S A PITCH TOO FAR

I agree wholeheartedly with Jenny Mosley that 'There is a desperate need for synerey within the community so everyone may benefit and no one be socially excluded.'

Why then has there been such a lack of synerey (sic) over Paris Garden. There has been a real lack of consideration and consultation with people who live around the pitches whose quality of life will be adversely affected. The suggestions of the Paris Garden group for a community garden, which would be totally inclusive have been programmed out and objections from local organisations ignored.

These two pitches, together with the two on Hatfields - a good revenue earner for Colombo Street Sports Centre - are to be managed by them 'as part of the COIN STREET BUILDERS OVERALL SPORTS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME; (Lambeth Planning Applications Committee Officer Report 28/1/2003)

Aha I found it.

Speaking of synergy here is a suggestion.

(I still think a bit of park would be a great way of linking the area round the church and the trees in in Hatfields.)

If you are going to tarmac over this corner at least make sure that people can get in.

The ball courts at the Living Space for example maybe could be open longer. Went to a Waterloo Millennium Green event the other day and a lot of the kids there were saying they were often locked and they had to climb over the fence to use them.

The fire brigade has some courts (down Great Suffolk Street I think) I wonder if they would let you use them ?

Also Jennifer I was wondering is there going to be a swimming pool ?

I'd like that.

They shut the one on Elephant and Castle you know, apparently swimming pools are a bit annoying to run.



All the best
