The latest Friends Group minutes are now available for all to view. At this latest meeting the Friends discussed how they should spend their £2500 funding on. The grant is specifically to improve the entrance to the site, but there are a lot of options open to them.
The funding has come as part of the Kenneth White legacy. Kenneth White, ‘was a widely published author of local environmental, social and geographical issues.’ He sadly passed away in 2012, but bequeathed some money to Lewisham’s Nature Reserves. It was agreed by the Lewisham Biodiversity Partnership that part of this money should be used as grants which for local Friends Groups could bid for to make improvements to their site. The first of these grants was awarded to the Friends of Garthorne Road to improve the entrance to the nature reserve and make it more welcoming.
