Earlier this week, (March 19) members of the Friends of Riverside Gardens, Erith (FORGE), were presented with the key to a new onsite storage cupboard which, along with a new water supply, has been installed by the council to help the group care for the flowers and shrubs they plant in the gardens.

A new Friends Group information pack to help residents was also launched.

Cllr Peter Craske, cabinet member for community safety, environment and leisure, said: “We want to commend and support the sterling work which volunteers such as the Friends of Riverside Gardens Erith do.”

The information pack provides advice and guidance for residents who want to set themselves up as a voluntary group.

Anyone interested in setting up or joining one of the existing Friends Group should email Parks&OpenSpaces@bexley.gov.uk

Copies of the information pack are available in local libraries and online at https://www.bexley.gov.uk/services/parks-and-open-spaces/friends-groups-and-environmental-voluntary-groups
