Norwood Lake is having a fun day: June 8

Norwood Lake signThe Lakes Playground Action Group, which wants to regenerate the South Norwood lake playground, is holding an event for all the family on Saturday, June 8, with lots of activities for children including storytelling by Little Supernovas, a bouncy castle supplied by Bubbly Bees, cake stalls, a raffle, lucky dip and arts and crafts.

The event is free, and the action group urges people, “Why not pop in, have some fun, and find out more about the action group?”

Formed in October 2012, the group is aiming to raise funds to help to regenerate the park.

Steve Reed, the local MP, said: “South Norwood Lake and grounds is a much-loved local park, and I support the initiative to create innovative play spaces for all of the local community to enjoy.”

LPAG will also be staging its annual meeting during the event. “The team would love to hear your ideas about what improvements you’d like to see. There’s a fab competition for kids, too, to design a plaque that will go on display in the new playground.”

LPAG is also consulting residents in Croydon, Lambeth, Southwark and Bromley who use the park and grounds through an online survey: click here to complete it; it takes barely a minute, and allows you to lodge your ideas for how to improve the park for the future.
