We had a good meeting the last Saturday, 8 June 2013 at Pembroke House ( St Christopher’s Church, 80 Tatum Street, London SE17 1QR).
We had plenty to discuss amongst other the outcome of the Spring event, the advancement along the Byzantine bureaucracy to obtain the sign for the WildLife Area the Sustainability Grant and especially the training courses where we should learn an introduction to writing a Management Plan and specifically Managing an Urban Wildlife Area.
For more information and minutes write to us.
Thanks again to Julian and Frank the Friends have won an Offer of Sustainability Grant -Surrey Square Park Regeneration from Community Spaces (Groundwork UK). This funds were difficult to secure and they come as corollary to the larger grant from the same Community Spaces people to maintain the work done.
“Congratulations! On behalf of the Community Spaces Program I am pleased to offer Friends of Surrey Square Park (FoSSP) a sustainability grant for up to a maximum of £3,500.00. This grant is specifically to fund the sustainability of your completed project. Conservation Training and Conservation Management Plan“
Also we won the Cleaner, Greener, Safer bid we made last autumn to the Walworth Community Council.
So we really need all the hands on deck to help each other in delivering these new resources to our little Park.
