Weekly litterpic – Litterpic will every Monday, 8-9am March to October
Join our weekly litter-pic Monday mornings to help tackle heavy week-end litter in the park, especially preventing rubbish getting into the lake. Meet at Chumleigh Gardens, litterpics, gloves and bags provided.
We are responding to planning applications around the park, especially Parkhouse St and Old Kent Road developments, and others. We have a sub-group to develop responses and meet with developers and support park users to respond to consultation. Get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org.
