The Friends of Markfield Park is open to anyone who uses our local park here in South Tottenham, London N15.
The coronavirus situation has demonstrated the importance of parks to local communities such as ours. Markfield Park is particularly important as our local area is so densely population with many families living in flats without gardens or open space.
We aim to do what we can to care for and improve Markfield Park. For example, just before the lockdown we had high hopes of re-developing the community garden area. We will pick this project up when circumstances allow.
We are a small group, but we want to build our membership. We aim to meet once a month. Although we have hadn’t met for a while, we had our first Zoom meeting in May 2020 and we have had monthly meetings over the summer. As soon as we can we hope to be able to meet in person again. Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings.
We are very keen for more people to get involved with our group. You may simply want to know what’s going on in Markfield Park or you may have ideas for how to improve it. Or there may be an issue you are concerned about. We have the ear of the council (who manage the park) and we can – and do - make things happen.
You can get in touch with us by email. So if you’d like to join us (no fee) or if you have ideas about what you’d like to see us get involved in, or if you’d like to make a donation, then please make contact with us.
