London Green Spaces Friends Groups Network launches

A new forum bringing together the capital's green spaces Friends groups has launched.

London's local Friends groups have vowed to work together to value, protect and improve the capital's parks and open spaces.

More than 80 representatives from Friends groups from 17 London boroughs gathered for the first time for a major conference at the weekend.

The conference launched a new London Green Spaces Friends Groups Network.

Conference chairman Dave Morris, from the Friends of Lordship Recreation Ground in Haringey, said: "It was inspiring to hear about the incredible work being done by local residents and park users all over London to protect and improve their green spaces. We agreed to continue to work together and support each other, to swap information and best practice, and to speak out for all London's green spaces now and into the future. We call on Londoners to form Friends groups for all green spaces, and to establish Friends forums in every borough." 

The new London Green Spaces Friends Groups Network will hold a follow-up meeting for Friends groups on 2 November at City Hall, SE1.

I will not be importing oaks this season. Will you?

I find myself in a difficult situation. A few weeks ago I was fortunate to be present to hear details of imminent changes to regulations concerning Oak Processionary Moth (OPM) and oak trees. I heard details, asked questions and probed the implications of these changes. That may not sound like a difficult position to be in, yet I am uneasy.
