Public Meeting - Wimbledon Park Improvements with Justine Greening and Friends of Wimbledon Park

Wimbledon Park Public Meeting: 23 November at 7pm at the Wimbledon Club
The Friends of Wimbledon Park and I are hosting a public meeting on 23rd November at 7pm at the Wimbledon Club to get your views on ideas for improving Wimbledon Park.
As you may be aware, last year Merton Council made a series of proposals on Wimbledon Park. This included moving the athletics stadium to near the railway line, a move that many local residents did not support as the stadium would have backed onto residents’ gardens and created a lot of disruption. Fortunately, those plans were shelved by Merton Council, so along with the Friends of Wimbledon Park and Stephen Hammond MP, after having had lots of feedback on what people didn’t like, we wanted to try to have a better discussion on what changes we would like to see, and I would like to get your views on better ways for the park to be improved.
The meeting will give a chance for Friends of Wimbledon Park to share some of the ideas they have already had for ways to improve the existing facilities and improve the park. It will be a chance for residents to feedback on those ideas but also importantly to suggest some suggestions of your own. Ideally we’d like to then pull together a resident-driven proposal with Friends of Wimbledon Park and then get Merton and Wandsworth Council to support it to be taken forward.
In the meantime, I have also written to Merton Council to see what the next steps are for the park and how we can take forward any residents’ ideas that come from our meeting.
The meeting will take place on 23rd November at 7pm at the Wimbledon Club so do come along to share your own thoughts and views. Also, please do share this with your friends and neighbours if you know someone who might be interested in attending. If you can’t make it, but are still interested in getting more information, please see my website and look out for a survey following the meeting, or just drop me a line with any suggestions for Wimbledon Park improvements.
I hope that is helpful and if you’d like to be kept informed on this project, let me know as I’ll be emailing out updates. If you’d like to hear about other things I’m working on as a local MP, get in touch and I will add you to my monthly e-newsletter.

Please help Sophie Lionnet's Family
Weʼre raising £2,000 to Support Sophie Lionnet’s Family
As you may already know, our community has been stunned by the recent murder of a French Nanny/Au Pair, Sophie Lionnet.
In a bid to do something constructive and positive in her memory, while also reminding ourselves that the people amongst whom we live remain our friends, and the core ingredients of our incredibly lovely neighbourhood, the Southfields Triangle Residents’ Association has set up this Crowd Funding page, in order to raise funds for Sophie’s family.
Money cannot bring her back – but it can at least help family members through this unimaginably difficult period.
Please if you can, go to our just giving page to make a donation
