Crofton Park ward assembly report

Thnks to reader and twitterer Liz for the following report from the recent Crofton Park meeting:

Crofton Park held its third assembly at St Saviour's Church Hall on 31 January. Whilst attendance at the Saturday meeting was a lower than previous evening meetings, holding the meeting on a Saturday afternoon and the provision of a crèche meant some new faces were visible (and from the noise in the background the children seemed to enjoy it too!!).

Whilst the Assembly was still chaired by Cllr Sylvia Scott, this was the first assembly meeting where the Coordinating Group as a whole (with the help of Sarah Cooper from Lewisham Council) set the agenda and lead all of the activities on the day.

In ward news, ward councillors (Jarman Parmar, Jackie Addison, Sylvia Scott) announced the proposals that were funded by the 2008/09 Locality Fund. These included:

Sensory reading garden at Crofton Park Library - £3,000
Blythe Hill Fields Festival - £1,400 (The Blythe Hill Fields User Group)
Community Notice Board in Honor Park Road - £600 (Honor Oak Park Action Group)
Flower planters & baskets for Brockley Road & Brockley Rise - £2,500
Christmas lights for Crofton Park ward - £2,500
