The real ‘big society’ fighting for community spaces

15 May

Today I learned that most of the amazing adventure playgrounds in London initially started out as land occupations by local people who wanted to create spaces for their communities, in the 1960s and 70s.

With community spaces being threatened more and more with closure due to lack of funding or the push for redevelopment, nows is the time for that kind of community action to be rekindled.

There are plans for a community garden project in Hackney. If you’d like to get involved just drop me an email to fools.prints@yahoo.co.uk there’s lots of work to be done so the more enthusiastic hands the better!

Communities wont put up with continuously being sidelined… Watch this space for more information
