Help A London Park

This morning I hosted a delegation from William Torbitt Primary School in Redbridge, who came to deliver around 300 postcards from their pupils, supporting the case for £2 million funding for Fairlop Waters.

Proposals for this large site include rehabilitating wildlife habitats, providing a play area, reinstating paths and providing better access throughout, including to a lagoon in the south of the park.

With the mayor due to decide on the recipient of this funding, as well as the winner of the £400,000 allocated by public vote, this was a timely intervention which could tip the scales in our favour.

I will be boxing up the cards and carrying them up to the mayor's office this afternoon - I hope that Boris considers the very sound case and chooses to award the money to Fairlop Waters.
