Friends of Falkland & Fairfax Open Space (FFFOS) committee meeting with Community Development Officer, 05/12/2006.
Paul Formosa, Haringey Council
Apologies: Deborah Peacock, Leesa Herbert
Next open space event
The next event should be before the Easter break-up, possibly on Saturday 24 March 2007. Activities could include bulb planting, Easter egg hunt, face painting, tea/coffee and food. We should also get people’s views on future play equipment etc.
An event’s insurance will probably be necessary (£80). Funding for the event could be obtained from e.g. the Police Property Fund and UK villages.
Paul offered to make the event posters.
The Friends of Falkland & Fairfax Open Space (FFFOS) will continue collecting e-mail addresses to add to the send list (e.g. at their meeting in February 2007 and at the March event).
News on log cabin and works
Demolition of the log cabin building will start in February 2007. Lighting will be improved and the ball court will be resurfaced after the drainage has been sorted out. New goals will be put in before spring.
Agreed that the open space is cleaned regularly.
We need to find out what play equipment the children want. We can get views at the March event. There is no funding for equipment in this year’s council budget. Recreation Services (Lou Taylor) is trying to secure funding.
Paul will check if it possible to get a power point and a marquee.
Sources of funding
Paul agreed to help where possible with this, particularly passing on sources to FFFOS as he comes across them.
Next FFFOS group meeting; Sunday 11th February, 11am, Falkland Centre (entrance from Frobisher Rd ).
