Support the fantastic Friends of Kennington Park
Yesterday was the AGM of the Friends of Kennington Park, and a celebration of the tenth anniversary of the group.
It's been another really successful year, with the Friends bringing more additional investment and planning more ambitious projects to improve the park.
This year that has included raising more than £2000 to clean and restore the war memorial, introducing three new benches, new signage and nesting boxes for birds and bats.
The Friends have also embarked on an application to the Heritage Lottery Fund to restore the historic flower garden, and will be contributing to Lambeth Council's 10 year masterplan for the park.
The Friends are always looking for new members and people willing to volunteer their time with various projects - be they gardening, fundraising, administration, or any positive project to enhance the park. Please join as a member at their website.
At yesterday's meeting Kate Hoey MP suggested that the Friends assist residents around Kennington Green in trying to improve that small green space - we hope this suggestion might be taken up!
