Mountsfield Park – report problems using Love Lewisham mobile phone app say the Council

Lewisham Council suggest using one of the following mobile phone apps to report problems at Mountsfield Park and any other public space in the borough. Eg litter, bins overflowing, toilet unusable, uneven paths, dog litter, entrance gates left open…

MP Heidi Alexander explains how to use the apps in this youtube video. When submitting a report using one of these apps, there is a ‘Category’  ‘Parks – Damage/Maintenance’.

AGM & Tea with the Vicar – Friends of Mountsfield Park

Invitation to all Friends:

Friends of Mountsfield Park’s Annual General Meeting

aka  

A Lovely Get-together with Buffet Tea*

3.30pm, Saturday 18th October

St. Swithun’s Church Hall, St. Swithun’s Road, Hither Green

Children will be encouraged to get crafting in the basement while we meet.

St. Swithun’s Vicar Jane has very generously waived the fee for the hall and basement (approx. £130),

instead we’ll be asking for contributions towards church hall hire and children’s entertainment on the day.

Tea, scones and sarnies after the meeting (Let’s hope it’s champagne next year)

 Remember – this is your chance to get involved and to have your say

about what FoMP should be focusing on in 2015! 

* “AGM” is so off-putting! And we want you all there by way of a thank you for your support.

Mountsfield Park Improvements – Design Workshop Meeting Notes 18/01/2014

BDP/Lewisham Council, Mountsfield Park design workshop 18-01-2014

BDP/Lewisham Council, Mountsfield Park design workshop 18-01-2014

Preliminary design layout  agreed last Saturday for the Mountsfield Park community garden and new park cafe – Lewisham Council and their design consultants BDP invited local people that had previously expressed an interest in the Mountsfield Park community garden to a design workshop yesterday at Hither Green Baptist Church. BDP presented a sketch plan showing a community garden, new cafe building, refurbished children’s play area, orchard, wildlife area etc. The proposed general arrangement is  based upon meeting the needs of the local community, results of previous consultation phases and what can be best achieved with the existing budget. The proposal is to provide a new 90 sq/m cafe building (including toilets) made from 4 shipping containers. Estimated completion of the  improvements is by the end of 2014. The scale of each of the proposed improvements is still indicative. A sketch site plan of the community garden will be issued by Lewisham Council/BDP in the near future for further consultation.
