£15,000 bursary for revamping older children’s play area!
The playground in Sydenham Wells Park is on the shortlist of 20 to receive a renovation bursary from Robinsons Fruit Shoot. The five play areas across the UK with the most votes will each receive a £15,000 renovation in time for the summer holidays. Sydenham Wells Park is the only playground in Lewisham to be shortlisted and we have until April 20th to vote on the website. Please vote today at the weblink below to help us get closer to winning and spread the word amongst your friends. Thank you!
We have had a donation of a Monkey Puzzle tree, which has been planted in a discreet place inside the duck pond area. We have also planted a replacement Handkerchief tree within this area – the original of which died several years back – look out for the new tree in May when it will flower!
Every Tuesday Iris Humphries leads the Healthy Walks Group which meets by the duck pond in the park at 11amfor a walk around the park. If you are interested come and join in and meet the locals – everybody is welcome. The Healthy Walks group accommodates a mixture of pace so everyone is catered for.
If anybody is interested in keeping bees please get in touch as we have people who will tend the hives.
Plans for the future include:
• Installation of a drinking fountain
• Redesigning the Rose garden at the of the park
• Ideas for the plot at the top of Taylors Laneare being discussed possibly as an Outdoor Gym or as a Community Garden.
• The Playground and Tennis Courts are in need of updating and we are constantly looking for funding for both of these. Any ideas will be most welcome.
The Sydenham Wells Park Improvement Group meets four times a year in the hut inside the park’s compound by the main gate and everyone is welcome to attend – just keep an eye on the Notice board for the dates.
Thank you for being a visitor to the Park.
