Last month, we reported how Greenwich Council says it can’t afford to pay for lighting around the skate park and gym in Charlton Park.
The Friends of Charlton Park aren’t giving up, though – and are looking to get funding from elsewhere. If you’re a regular visitor to Charlton Park in the afternoon or evening, you can help them.
If you pass the skate park and gym between 3pm and 9pm, keep an eye out for how many people are using them – and please fill in this form.
The friends group hopes to be able to demonstrate what should be blindingly obvious – but needs underlining to people who can give money – which is that more people use the skate park and gym when there is light.
Want to help the Friends of Charlton Park put on Parksfest?
The group is also putting on a Parksfest festival around the skate park on Saturday 22 June – if you want to help raise money for it, there’s a Curryoke event on Saturday 16 March at 8pm at Cattleya on Charlton Church Lane. Tickets £25 are email elizabethrj001[at]gmail.com for details.
And if you can spare some time to volunteer on the day of Parksfest itself, feel free to drop the group a line too.
