How can this be acceptable?

 "Is the lack of consultation part of the problem?"
asks Bambos Charalambous in Parliament?"

  

Has not that been caused by the Government's insistence that the schemes be implemented straightaway within an eight-week period, not allowing any consultation with communities or very limited consultation at best?"

Firs Farm acquiring new friends

on Wednesday, 24 September 2014. Posted in N21 Community

Firs Farm, the open space south of Firs Lane, primarily used as playing fields by local football teams, is undergoing something of a makeover. (Also familiarly known as the "Dog walking park")

  

 

 

April 2015

 

 "20 volunteers, plus materials donated to the Friends of Firs Farm Park by Travis Perkins and Edmonton Rotary Club. How lovely is that? Good old community spirit - we cannot do without it. Long may it continue in our lovely leafy Winchmore Hill."

March 2015

 

The Mayor's Big Green Fund is investing £900,000 in projects across London to improve local green spaces

 

and bring other benefits such as recreation, better walking and cycling routes and reduced risk of flooding.

 

Firs Farm in Winchmore Hill is one of the shortlisted sites. 

 

AND THE GOOD NEWS IS WE HAVE WON!


14.4n7


The hours of standing in the foyer of Sainsburys; dropping flyers through local letterboxes; posting messages on social media sites has paid off - The Firs Farm team's bid has been awarded £175,000 in the Mayor of London's Green Poll, to develop Firs Farm Park into a wetland habitat and community park (with Greenways cycle path)!

 

The team, led by Toni Guiver, who masterminded the bid, (pink jacket, on the right of Cllr Chris Bond) secured an amazing 20% of all the votes cast across more than a dozen projects.

The grant will be used to create a new wetland habitat, capable of storing 30,000 cubic metres of flood water, that will reduce flood risk to parts of Edmonton. It will also restore 500m of river to the park creating an interesting and varied landscape and improving the ecology of the park.

 

What Toni Giuver has achieved since September 2014, through the formation of The Friends of Firs Farm is a case study in effective community action.

 

Toni would like to say A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who voted from the surrounding communities, local businesses, and community groups all who helped to promote the voting. She describes it is a community effort and it is a great example of people power -but Toni was the catalyst.

Would you like to become a Friend of Firs Farm?

 

Toni Guiver, who lives opposite Firs Farm has galvanised local residents to set up a Friends of Firs Farm group. To quote Toni:

 

"Many local dog walkers, keep-fit enthusiasts, along with a number of sports groups, use this space and currently it is going through a number of changes in relation to the recently publicised flood relief works. Would you like to know how you can contribute to these changes and in how our park will be used? Join the Friends Group for Firs Farm Park. N21 2PJ. Friends Groups represent the community's interest in their local park or open space. You can get involved in how our park is managed and maintained, hold events, raise funds, develop small projects and work with the Council in various ways for the benefit of Firs Farm Park"


Toni is a community organiser par excellence. She was one of the Grovelands Park Centenary organisers, responsible for galvanising a medley crew of enthusiastic volunteers into action. She is now hoping to encourage people living in the vicinity of this green space, to take pride in this local parkland. She is keen to hear from people who would like to help her to form the group; would like to join, as well as people who are prepared to distribute leaflets and promote the idea to their neighbours. Once the group is established, the Friends will work with the Parks department to devise a management plan, with the aim of improving the appearance, facilities, conservation value and safety , to help clear litter, vegetation management and other small jobs to improve the habitat.

 

Toni is also hoping to involve local schools in the new project, encourage them to get involved in conservation tasks in the grounds and start to see it somewhere more than just somewhere to kick a ball around, throughout the changing seasons.
