What are the cafe opening times? I'm not sure I've ever seen it open
Hi , Is there any news on this? Would like to get involved. As a special needs teacher and playworker, I know what a massive impact play centres can have.
Hi Oli will pm you
And don;t forget to send me stuff if you want anything publicised on Buzz!
editor it is a really complicated story, in short the councils plans to ‘regenerate’ the playground and Marcus Lipton youth center next door to provide new housing are very much ongoing.
Buzzed: Volunteers needed for Fix & Play Day at Grove Adventure Playground, south London, Sat 14th Apr
The Council is now proposing a three year Meanwhile lease for LJAG to manage the playground.
^ not exactly like the council just freely decided to propose this but yep.
From the officers report:
Don't we all just love the Cooperative Council? Council officers are such caring humanitarians.
We in LJ should be grateful that are hard working officers in Lambeth council have granted us the generous two years before it's "regenerated" as part of Council policy in making diverse and sustainable neighborhoods.
Thank you so much Lambeth council.
The officers list the "risks" in allowing reopening of the APG.
Ie local people might not want the APG to be lost. What a frightening scenario for the council officers. On a prime piece of land just waiting to be redeveloped.
I was at the last Grove APG diy day. We got a lot of work done. The Council report Tricky Skills posted makes no mention of the unpaid hours of work volunteers have put in to get the APG in working condition. That doesnt count in Cooperative Lambeth.
A few photos. One volunteer made these T shirts on the day.
Im impressed Tricky how do you dig these reports up?
We still have lots more Work to Do Before
