Park Vs Park in Croydon

Paul, Bill, Gwen and myself looking like the (green) Space Sentinels

Six out a shortlist of eighteen parks are up for a share of £1.5 million. This process of competing for vital funding is increasingly the modus operandi used by the authorities. On the surface it seems fair but the reality is the most needy might not be successful.

I must give a plug for Thornton Heath Recreation Ground. Having missed out to Wandle Park last year in the Mayor's Vote for a London park competition, through questionable circumstances, the park I am involved with really needs your vote.

Croydon Advertiser ran a feature on the competition a few weeks back. Cuttings are from that piece.
