We want to grow a greener Britain by creating or transforming green spaces across the UK.
Starting this April with a new bank of wildflowers and shrubs on the east side of the park we plan, over the coming years, to transform the park in partnership with the local community and Waltham Forest council. We are a community group formed of local residents who have come together to make a difference. We began last year, with our first planting where we gathered over 30 residents to plant a group of whips on the north edge of the park. Over time our aims are: - to improve the biodiversity of the park - promote community recreation in the park - foster greater use of this shared space by the whole of the local community Ultimately, we want to act as a champion and catalyst for greater community pride and respect for the local area and to have a positive impact on the area.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
We believe if the park is a more attractive and biodiverse space it will make it a more valued place for local residents and all users of the park, increasing community ownership of the area and reducing anti social behaviour and littering. We hope our work as a community group will foster a new social links, engendering a sense of belonging to those who take part. Ultimately, together with the Hub and the new Community cafe, we will work towards transforming Higham Hill Park and the local area for the good of everybody.
