We invite everyone with an interest in Streatham Common to our Annual Public meeting. If you use the common, the rookery for relaxation, pleasure, for sport, for nature – we would love you to join us.
The Friends work to ensure Streatham Common and the Rookery are well kept and have facilities for all sections of our community, providing community views of the maintenance and development of the area in a way that balances the needs of diverse groups of users. You do not have to be a member to attend.
Thursday 15th March
7:15pm – 9:45pm
Venue: Immanuel and St. Andrew’s Church Hall
(at the base of Streatham Common near to Sainsburys)
19:45 A discussion on Lambeth’s music events held on Streatham Common with questions answered by Lambeth’s events team and local councillors.
20:45 The Rookery and SCCoop: The Streatham Common Co-operative is a not-for-profit social enterprise set up by the Friends, owned by the community, and part funded by Lambeth. They have been running the Rookery since 2015, the Paddling Pool since 2016 and the Local Nature Reserve since 2017. Find out how it’s going, and tell them your ideas on what should happen next?
21:15 A presentation on what’s happening around the Rookery cascade.
21:30 A summary of what has happened and what is planned on the Common.
21:45 End of meeting

A sub-committee hearing for those wishing to attend will take place at Lambeth Town Hall, Committee Room B6, Brixton Hill, London SW2 1RW 22/03/18 @ 7.00pm]
