Our Aims

As The Friends of Coronation Gardens in liaison with Wandsworth Borough Council and/or its contractors would include:

• Acting as a forum for all residents and users of the Gardens, to raise, discuss and agree any issues regarding any aspect of its use.

• Coming up with suggestions for promoting the Gardens, which may include an annual open day, cultural festivals or other commercial or community events.

• Liaising regularly with Wandsworth Council and its contractor Enable plc about the current state of the Gardens, or any improvements that could be made.

• Subject to agreement and help from Enable, applying for external grants for one-off projects where the current maintenance budget cannot be used.
