Parks & Gardens
Lambeth are working in partnership with the Milkwood Community Park Friends Group on a proposal to install some outdoor gym equipment in the park, to improve the health and well-being of local people - alongside other refurbishments to play equipment.
London Wildlife Trust are mapping hedgehogs all across London to try and stem their rapid decline. Check out this fascinating map (link) to see where they've been spotted - Rosendale allotments seem to have some spiky goings on!
Have you ever seen one here? If so, please let London Wildlife Trust know - and add a comment below!
The Museum of Walking have a walk coming up in National Park City Week (21-29 July) which passes through Herne Hill - a walkshop that covers three historic estates where mulberry trees were grown (and where some still survive): Belair Park, Brockwell Park & Myatt's Fields.
The Friends of Brockwell Park (FOBP) is deeply concerned about the decision by the London Borough of Lambeth (LBL) to fence off the Lambeth Country Show (LCS) this July 21–22, and impose stringent security, including the banning of all drinks being brought into the park. This is the first time in more than 40 years this has happened.
