There have been a couple of set backs to the refurbishment of the Mayow Park pavilion - first a collapsed sewer, 3.7 down, and second, as much if not more extensive dry rot than feared in the worst case - so mid July is now more when completion is hoped for, rather than expected. In any case, LB Lewisham will be seeking expressions of interest in operating the café towards the end of May.

This morning I spoke to the site supervisor for Glendale about the collapsed sewer, who described it as a 'complete nightmare', and was not going to let me get any closer pictures than this, which I got by leaning over the fence into Grow Mayow



They at least can see where the sewer is broken - 3.7 meters below the surface, and according to the Glendale manager at last night's meeting of Friends of Mayow Park, there is water coming into the hole from they know not where. A portaloo is going to have to be installed for there to be any toilets in the park.

This is obviously disappointing, but it was actually a very positive meeting, especially thanks to a new member representing the interests of dog-walkers. In winter especially, they are the park's eyes and ears, and hopefully, they will soon no longer feel excluded.

We're also looking for someone to speak for 'families', so if you or anyone you know is a regular user of the park, with your kids, and want to say what should be done for them, then please get in touch.
