Dexter Road Playground users are waiting, we as a community need to do more than just watch.

Latest developments ‘Heartspace’ is trying to secure funding to develop the Dexter Road playground site, to enable play activities to occur for local families.

The organisation  will have to be able to be self funding in future to develop activities in order to remain open.

There is a lot of community feeling and Local Councillors are  hoping ‘Heartspace’ works. We will meet up with Lucy Cava, at Brixton pound Cafe this Tuesday Oct 5.30pm to explore ways the wider community can make that happen. ps the Railton Road TRA (Tenants Residential Association) are meeting  later that evening.

dexterLocal residents tried last year, attended meetings, selected a provider, but need support from the wider community as both; Grove Playground  and Max Roach playground have managed (with support from YLC.)  Make sure any children  you know are signed up to Young Lambeth Coop as  its AGM is coming up.
