Sutton Council is carrying out a range of surveys about it's Parks and Open Spaces this summer to help us to complete a new Open Spaces Strategy.
Through this survey we would like to find out your views and experiences of visiting the Parks in Sutton. This will help us to shape the ongoing work that we will do in Sutton to protect, maintain and enhance our Parks and Open Spaces in the future.
Friends groups provide a strong focus for our parks. The groups' enthusiasm and commitment can lend weight to both small and large projects and issues, as well as often providing an eyes and ears service.
If there are no contact details or you want to know more about setting up a new group, such as at Seears Park or Benhill Recreation Ground, please contact the Parks Service on 020 8770 5070 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What they do
A friends group can help a park by:
- Bidding for external funds
- Taking part in improvement activities and running park projects and events
- Keeping a notice board up to date
- Reporting damage/incidents in the park top either the police or parks officers
- Bringing a park visitor's perspective to discussions on standards and how maintenance work is carried out
