This is a community website for the Friends (and others) of The Lambeth Walk Open Space. The Friends welcome new members whatever their financial or residence status, but local people who use, look at or enjoy our park regularly will get most out of our organisation. Anyone who would like to contribute to the Friends or this blog, please get in touch via the email link (at right, below). We are currently spending nearly £200,000 on the important basics like fence, hedge, play area and path works

"Our park is changing daily, and I'm taking photos all the time. The performance area is pretty cool already and they're about to install the dog free area. Blakedowns are making a real effort on all the edgings of the pathways and more of our green (sic) fencing went up this week. Trees for Cities had a reasonable planting day too, and they are now working on planting at the seating area - at the Denby Court end. It's really starting to look amazing. We've actually gained more green bits!

Roots & Shoots new building is scheduled to be completed in June this year. It looks great, and David said we can certainly use the new hall for our meetings. We should also find out at the end of the month if their WREF bid was successful for the new gate and access to the Space. The fencing for the community garden will be installed shortly as well.

"St Olaves is practically complete too, and they're just doing the snagging. I'm not sure when the residents are due, but at least some of the old lot will be coming back.

"The Kennington Road frontage is proving bloody hard as we expected. However it looks as though the park will get all the land from the Portacabin to Fitzalan Street and all the land outside of the current EYC footprint on the Kennington rd frontage. It's a shame that we've had to resort to simply divvying up' the site [but sometimes that's all that left to agree . . . ed]. . .

"Adam continues to be simply amazing, he's thought of everything. I suppose all we have to do now is plan our opening!"
