Last summer, the Friends of Hillside Gardens Park organised some football training sessions at the park for local children. The sessions were a great success, so this Easter the Friends will be holding some more.
The sessions are aimed at girls and boys aged 7 to 12. Expert football coaching is provided is provided by Furzedown United FC. Attendance is free of charge, due to support from PRERA and Lambeth Council.
The Friends of Hillside Gardens Park have organised a summer football camp over the next three Saturdays – 28th July, 4th and 11th August. Funding for this has been provided by Lambeth Council’s housing department. There will be free coaching provided for children aged 7 to 12. See below for more details.
For several years the play area has been open to dogs, because the springs on the gates had broken. After months of nagging by the committee, the springs have now been replaced, so children should now be able to play without worrying about dog mess.

Another improvement that PRERA requested last August in our discussion with Linda Elliot has now taken place: rubber matting has been installed around the table tennis table and the slide. This should allow grass to grow in these areas and stop them becoming a muddy mess in wet wheather.
This evening a new youth centre opened on Christchurch Road, called the St. Martin’s Youth Centre. It is situated next to the sports pitches that are part of City Heights Academy and is managed by a new Community Interest Company. The centre is open to all Lambeth residents. Activities for young people currently include music techonology, arts and crafts, drumming and dancing. For more information, phone 020 8674 3975 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
