Save the Maryon Wilson Animal Park

I love the many green spaces around The Shire, and (as long as there's a Wi-Fi hotspot nearby¹), I love getting down with nature too.

The animal care centre in Maryon Wilson Park is under threat and it must be saved. I've taken Toddler Pangloss to meet and feed the animals many times and we loved it. We are really lucky to live in London and have the privilege of learning about animals. I know we also have Woodlands Farm on Shooters Hill, but that can be a drag to get to if you need to get on buses with a child and a perambulator and a bag of nappies et al.

If you've not been to the Maryon Wilson Animal Park, then go on a Wednesday at 1.30pm. You won't be disappointed.

There's an online petition for everyone to sign and make our virtual voices heard.

Don't make excuses like, I'll do it tomorrow, because you'll forget about it tomorrow. Sign the petition now!!!!

It would be great if everyone could let their children's teachers, toddler groups, Brownies, Cubs, etc. know as well.

One-stop "shop", contains news, model letter to councillors, link to the online petition, a window poster to print out, etc.

Useful link. Thanks very much.
I'll create a quick blog post with your link to give it prominence.

Or, come to the crucial budget meeting taking place on Weds 2nd March at the town hall.
