London could be a city where most of our needs - from shops, schools, green spaces, pubs, doctors, dentists and playgrounds - are within a 10-20 minute walk. But this needs thriving local town centres and safe walking/cycling routes.
How can public green space help improve our mental & physical health & increase social cohesion? On Tuesday Sept 29 DeptfordFolk Chair and London Green Space Commissioner, Trina Lynskey, spoke at a Future of London round table discussion on parks and equalities. The discussion is available online HERE.
It's fantastic to know that the work we have been doing here in Deptford to improve parks, green spaces and access has been noticed further afield.
There a many great individuals, organisations and community groups who operate around the area who all do great things.
If you are thinking about getting involved in your community there are great opportunities to work with amazing people.
