Organisers are looking for people that live locally (anywhere from Brixton to Oval) that haven't visited Myatt's Fields Park - and don't even know where it is!
Local people are invited to take part in a friendly, relaxed get together on Thursday (6th December) from 11am - 1pm.
The meeting is organised by two students from Imperial College that have been exploring the reasons that Myatt's is good for your health. They want to explore the reasons that people don't visit Myatt's and what activities might make people want to use the park.
As a thank you for your time, everyone that takes part will be given a £20 shopping voucher. Refreshments will be available.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to take part. Organisers are looking for six people to take part and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
The meeting will be at the Old Depot, Myatt's Fields Park, Cormont Road SE5 9RA. The building is opposite the park toilets and near the junction of Brief Street and Cormont Road.
