Five years of greenhouse funding
We've secured £249,200 from City Bridge Trust towards our community greenhouse activities! A part-time community gardener will use the greenhouse to grow plants for the park and food growing projects throughout Vassall and Coldharbour, and run skills sharing sessions with local people. A volunteer coordinator will support volunteers and offer training to local projects. We'll also host a weekly community meal and inspiring trips to other green spaces in London for members of the public.
The MFPP team spent two days at Lancaster University in March for a Hackathon which saw students compete to come up with the best ideas to make Myatt's a Smart Park, using digital technology to engage audiences and improve park management.
Bye bye to Helen!
Our brilliant acting park manager Helen is moving on to a new role at Lambeth Parks after Easter. We wish her all the best for the future! We'll be recruiting soon, so stand by for more information in due course.

Legal volunteers wanted! We're looking for people to support us with legal issues, especially contracts in areas such as HR but also with hires and lettings. You 'd probably need to commit to help four times a year. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
