How about the centre of Lewisham that's a fine open space built out of the rubble of old buildings...should get a recycling award at least.

Still no news on the funding from Boris, or the secret loan by Lewisham to the Gateway project, or a start date?

Our councillors have gone extremely quiet on the matter.

Lewisham won the 'Best new Public Space' last year as well for Margaret McMillan Park. This year Ladywell Fields is up for it. So good to see that the Parks of Lewisham are being recognised for the great spaces they are. All that improvement work has been fantastic and the Parks are looking great. Well deserved.

as the 'Best new Public Space' is brought to you by a range of london-borough-led services it's just a bit of 'patting themselves on the back' really
