Vote for Viccie Park!

Boris Johnson - the current Mayor of London - has promised £6 Million to spruce up London's parks.

Wouldn't it be great if some of that money could be spent down the road here in Viccie Park?!

Although it is a great park with loads of great amenities (see http://leabanksquare.blogspot.com/2006/11/victoria-park-or-viccie-park-as-almost.html) - it would be fantastic to see more money spent on our local green oasis.

Could you imagine a bigger sk8 park? Or a better swimming splash pool? Or even a more organised picnic area? Whatever you want for Viccie Park - we have got to work a bit for it!

The mayor has decided that we have to vote on the Internet for the parks that get some of the £6 000 000 spent on them.

Now....... I have spent over an hour trying to find out just how & where to do this voting - but can't seem to find the website that we need to use. So please - in the meantime could we ALL start sending him emails at mayor@london.gov.uk saying that we want Viccie Park to be one of the winning parks!!

Pleeeeezzzzzzzzz!!!

And then when the mayor decides to get the website up & running - I'll post another blog with the details. But please send heaps of emails STARTING NOW to mayor@london.gov.uk - & we might be lucky!!

Oh - and see http://www.london.gov.uk/view_press_release.jsp?releaseid=17455 for more details.

Go for it!!

Right!

I've sent a couple off. Please everyone, don't think that just cos some of us are sending votes - that's enough.

We all need to send as many as we can in order to get some dosh spent locally.

Please send off as many as you can.
