Hello everyone,


I'm am writing to inform you about the above.  It'a a voluntary organisation with the object of combatting crime, vandalism and ASB in the Park.  It has been on the stocks for a couple of years, but is now beginning to have substance.


There are now metal plaques at the entrances of all Brockwell Park entrances with phone numbers and an e-mail address as follows:


ASB phone 0207 926 4000

Police Non-Emergency 101

Police Emergency 999 - for any concern not covered by the above.  All information or comment gathered here will be forwarded to the Herne Hill Police SNT team.


A meeting has just been held with Sgt John Sherlock of the Herne Hill SNT;  Ann Kingsbury, Chair of Brockwell Park Community Partners;  Lara Mifsud-Bonoco, Lambeth Parks & Open Spaces Officer;  Aysef Ismail, Area Crime Reduction Manager for Brixton & Clapham;  Paul Carter, Brockwell Park Manager; myself, Brockwell Park Watch Voluntary Co-Ordinator.


Our plan at this point is to circulate all groups with which we are connected and which may have an interest in the Park in order to publicise the existence of the organisation; and to have a stall at the Christmas Fayre in Brockwell Hall on Dec 7th,  This Fayre  is run by the Friends of Brockwell Park.


Our hope is that awareness of this organisation will encourage Brockwell Park well-wishers to feel that we all can be a part of it and help look after the welfare of our Park.


Any ideas on this enterprise will be welcome.


Edward Lavender.
