Friends of Chinbrook Meadows

      Friends of Chinbrook Meadows (FOCM) is a park user group, whose aim is to promote this beautiful local park and liaise with other agencies who have an interest in the park.

Chinbrook Meadows underwent considerable rejuvenation in 2002 and is now well used and appreciated by the local community. The changes in Chinbrook Meadows, and the impact of those changes have been much studied and acclaimed.

FOCM Members keep in touch with activities, changes and concerns of other park users to monitor and inform representatives from Lewisham Borough Council and Glendale Services who manage the park. The group is keen to promote new and ongoing improvements to the park. We also run occasional events to introduce new people to the park and encourage its wider use.

We are always eager to welcome new members. Our quarterly meetings are informal and open to all. Dates are advertised on the park notice board and usually take place on Tuesday evenings at 6.30 in the Ringway Centre, Baring Road.

  1. Hi there. I am newcomer to the park, having just moved nearby. It is such a beautiful space, and I would love to get involved with the goings on there! I’m also thinking of starting up an open air dance class, and would like to use a space at the park, so I’d be interested to find out how to go about that.
    I look forward to hearing from someone soon.
    Best wishes 😊

    • Hi Samantha, welcome to the area. Glad you are enjoying the park. Do come and join our monthly work sessions if you are free anytime (see Future Events). First one this year will be this Saturday 29th January. You need to contact Glendale if you want to run activities/events in the park as there is a form to fill in. Contact Gemma – gemma.buttell@glendale-services.co.uk Hope you can get sessions going I’m sure it’ll be popular. Best wishes Anne (chair of FOCM)
