Friends group

The Friends of the Woodland Walk group was formed in 1999 by a few local people who were fed up with the woods being poorly maintained and used as a rubbish dump.

They arranged regular clear-up days and persuaded Glendale and Lewisham Council to provide more litter bins, empty them more frequently and to lock the gates at night to deter fly-tipping.

Since then, they have obtained grants to provide new seating and bins, and to resurface the path, and are in regular contact with Glendale over the maintenance contract.  They are a registered Park User Group and are affiliated to Lewisham Parks Forum and The Conservation Volunteers.

They meet on the last Sunday of each month to help maintain this area of ancient woodland.  (check dates and locations of meetings under Work Days).
