Beckenham Place Park volunteers is a group of people who care about and want to help improve and maintain the park. The group undertakes a range of tasks, from setting up and maintaining the community garden (which grows food produce) to helping with woodland management, and helping to run public events in the park.
We have the volunteering hub, Gardener’s Cottage, in Beckenham Place Park. This is a Victorian cottage with 2 downstairs rooms, a downstairs accessible toilet, and a small kitchen. It can be borrowed (for a very small fee to cover cleaning) to be used for meetings or volunteer training or thank you events.
Knowledge and expertise around setting up the volunteering group as a body separate to Lewisham Council, so that the volunteers can raise funds (eg by selling produce they grow) to make the scheme financially sustainable.
