Vote for Deptford Park!

Deptford Park is one of 47 across London that have been shortlisted by the Greater London Authority for the chance to win a bit of extra cash.

It's one of the two in Lewisham that have been shortlisted, but it needs your vote if it's going to win! Only ten of the shortlisted parks will win funding, so it's up to us to make our voices heard!

I reported earlier this year about the masterplan that has been drawn up for the park. Funding was secured for the first phases, but additional money could pay for

* a new pergola and shelter;
* new seating;
* improvements to the play area including natural play features;
* colourful 'picture meadow';
* fruit trees;
* community food growing plots.

Investment funding of up to £400,000 each is on offer.

Londoners can vote to choose which parks get the £400,000 simply by logging on to, by text message or by postal vote. Voting closes on Friday 30 January 2009.

The Dame says go along and vote, and good luck to Lewisham Council for this initiative.

Just don't try and sneak anything into my leasehold bill for it afterwards!
