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.
Local 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.
Next is Black History month events at Libraries in Lambeth
