Cllr Addison and myself attended the Youth Assembly hosted by Prendergast Ladywell Fields. All the primary schools in Crofton Park Ward attended and drew up ideas for spending the funds they received from Crofton Park Assembly. It was good to see that all the ideas included the library to varying degrees and will enhance the use of the library by young people. The winning ideas came from Brockley Primary School but proposals are being drawn up for implementation, which include similar ideas from the other schools.
On 3 February, Prendergast Ladywell Fields College hosted a Youth Assembly at the school, inviting Stillness, St Mary Magdalene, Dalmain, St William of York, to bring their ideas for improving community safety and the environment. Cllrs Addison and Morrison attended what was a very interactive event with many good ideas including:
Students will prioritise the many issues raised and take them to The Crofton Park Safer Neighbourhood Panel and the Crofton Park Ward Assembly to gain the support for action from adults to work with them.
