We were thrilled that so many of our friends and supporters came to the Community Garden last weekend to celebrate the beginning of Christmas with a Mountsfield Park mug of mulled wine and a mince pie! Thank you so much.
Thanks also for your support, good-will, and volunteering in what has been a really wonderful year. We finish 2015 with an astonishingly popular children’s playground and a number of bids currently being considered by our partners at Lewisham Council for a new cafe. You have mulched, planted, watered, and built compost bins. You have donated clothes and tents for refugees in Calais, and helped Lewisham Foodbank to support families closer to home too. You have danced, sung carols, and brought your Teddy along to picnic in the Community Garden. Mountsfield Park has seen a bald eagle soar over its trees, and been awarded Green Park status.
Next year promises to be just as exciting and we know that with your continued support, the park will continue to be loved and used by the whole community.
So please accept our wishes for a very merry Christmas, and we look forward to everything that 2016 brings.
Rory, Rivke, Carrie, Max, Maria, Ros, and Gareth
