Green spaces  
Environment Committee - 10:30am-11:15am

London’s parks and green spaces face an uncertain future as funds are limited. The Environment Committee will publish its report, ‘Park life: ensuring green spaces remain a hit with Londoners’ which looks at what measures should be taken to protect and improve the capital’s green spaces.

The report will be launched at an historic and award-winning park in central London which has been restored to its original Victorian design. Volunteers help maintain the garden which hosts after-school clubs, poetry readings, gardening sessions and other local community events.

Time: 10:30am-11:15am
Location: Red Cross Garden, 50 Redcross Way, London SE1 1HA
