Beckenham, and the surrounding area, is fortunate to have so many beautiful public green spaces to enjoy all year round.
The House of Commons Select Committee for Communities and Local Government has just launched an inquiry into public parks to examine the impact of reduced local authority budgets on these open spaces and consider concerns that their existence is under threat.
The committee wants to encourage as many people as possible to contribute to the inquiry. In addition to a face-to-face survey in parks across the country, the committee is organising an online survey, web forums and a Twitter hashtag #myparkmatters, where people can let the Committee know why they value their local parks.
