Waterloo Open Spaces Forum

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

All campaigners and carers for green places in Waterloo are invited to this one-off Forum meeting to share ideas and knowledge towards a schedule of key projects.

This event is organised by the Waterloo Open Spaces Partnership through Waterloo Community Development Group, and Bankside Open Spaces Trust, with funding from Lambeth Council via WaCoCo.

"Waterloo has an amazing richness of community-managed green places, including Bernie Spain Gardens, Jubilee Gardens and our own Waterloo Millennium Green, as well as part community management at St John's Churchyard, Archbishop's Park, Hatfields Green and Ufford Street," said Helen Firminger, director of Bankside Open Spaces Trust

"Coming together as a group to see how we can make the most of our strengths has got to be a first principle, long term security for all green space is the vision."

Michael Ball of WCDG added: "One of the key issues we want to crack open is financial: the revenue requirements all open space management generates, the general fact that local government is not providing revenue funding, and the observation that money doesn't grow on trees."
