The people of Haringey, by demonstrating our support for the regeneration of Lordship Rec, Tottenham’s largest park, can win £400,000 for improvements there. We need your vote, and the votes of all your friends, family, school mates, neighbours, colleagues and everyone you can think of!
The Mayor of London’s ‘Help a London Park’ campaign is asking Londoners to show support for their local parks. 10 parks across London will each receive £400k. But the decision as to which parks get the funding is to be decided by an online vote. Lordship Rec has been shortlisted, and the more votes the Park gets, the more chance we will receive the funding. The result will be announced by the Mayor of London in February.
Over the years the Rec has suffered from a lack of resources and under usage. But years of dedication, hard work and partnership-building between park users, the Friends of Lordship Rec, community organisations and Haringey Council are finally paying off. A vision for the park has been agreed and some improvements have already been implemented. However this money would be vital in helping us to carry out our ambitious plans which will transform this park into a major attraction for all. Plans include a new city farm, environmental centre, restoration of the River Moselle, improved entrances, play facilities and landscape works.
We need to demonstrate that the regeneration plans have mass local support. So please show YOUR support by voting for green space, helping to make Lordship Rec a park the people of Tottenham, Haringey and North East London can be proud of.
PLEASE PASS THIS ON, AND ENCOURAGE EVERYONE YOU KNOW TO VOTE – AND VOTE NOW!!!

‘Years of dedication, hard work and partnership-building between park users, the Friends of Lordship Rec, community organisations and Haringey Council are finally paying off. We now call on all Haringey residents to demonstrate their support for the colossal effort that’s been put in, and for the exciting regeneration plans.’ – Dave Morris of the Friends of Lordship Rec
“I would urge everyone to get voting and show their support for Lordship Recreation Ground. Lordship Rec is one of the borough’s largest and most significant open spaces. It has the potential to provide facilities including a new city farm, environmental resource centre and other restored and improved facilities facilities not only vitally important to the local community, but for residents of Haringey and Londoners as a whole. Winning this vote would bring us closer to achieving these ambitious plans.” – Cllr Dhiren Basu, Haringey Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure, Culture and Lifelong Learning
Supported by the Friends of Lordship Rec, Haringey Friends of Parks Forum, Haringey Council, Haringey Federation of Residents Associations and many other local organisations…
