Since launching Love Eltham a few months ago we are delighted to say last weekend we finished our first project! We partnered with community organiser, Kirsty Davide. Kirsty has been doing some fantastic work in the local community for the last year listening to the comments and concerns of local residents about the area. We decided to join forces, combine our resources and so our team spent Saturday afternoon clearing up Briset Park on the Page Estate in Eltham.
Over the years Briset Park seems to have picked up a bad reputation with the local residents, so we wanted to try and do our bit to help build faith again in this local resource. After a few hours picking up litter, sweeping leaves and clearing the BMX track we were happy to say we didn't find anything that that we felt would deem the park unsafe at all, apart from a small area of broken glass which has now been cleared.
Massive thanks to all the volunteers that joined us last Saturday to make this possible. Hats off to you all!
We are always looking for new projects to help serve our local community in practical ways so if you have any project ideas please send them through to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best help out wherever we can.
