4 – Plans for the future
The 2018/19 plans included maintenance of existing park fittings such as replacing benches, and balance beams. We would also continue to work with the gp’s surgery across the road and we will look into the possibility of sending a team over to Royston Fields depending on numbers of volunteers and the areas requirements. It was noted that it was important to keep a balance between finding work for volunteers and keeping the park as a haven for the local wild flora and fauna. It was felt that it was important not to ‘over-develop’ the park. There was a question regarding provision and safe guarding of vulnerable volunteers.
Penny Read thanked the members of Penge Green Gym Community Group/Friends of Winsford Gardens for their ongoing commitment to the gardens and its future.
Meeting closed at 1.05pm.
