For the past year I've chaired the Roehampton Playing Fields Community Trust meetings. This is a group of local residents and Playing Field users who have come together to form the Trust and develop plans for how the Roehampton Playing Fields could be better run with involvement from our local community.
There's been some great work from the Trust to bring in all sorts of local groups and residents that are keen to see how they can get more involved with using the Playing Fields. It's been crucial to have our West Putney councillors involved and helping out too, including Councillor Steffi Sutters. Earlier this month Wandsworth Borough Council agreed to open up a new process for how the Playing Fields are run and looked after so that our Trust can put its proposals forward. There'll be a consultation for residents to now feed into, including those involved with RPFCT, and I'll keep residents updated going forward.
