There have been two Butterfield Green meetings in May with the park manager Michael Dixon and with the new park development oficer Eleanor Johnson. We heard from MD that staffing on Butterfield Green has again been reduced - and the supervisor is away on maternity leave, with no cover. We said how disappointed we are with the level of maintenance on the Green, while appreciating that the staff are doing their best. We hope to take this further.
Eleanor Johnson is in a post with responsibility for liaison with Park User Groups. We welcome this new post and look forward to working with her.
The problems with the stream have rather taken up all our energies lately - but we look forward to planning ways of improving both maintenance and future developments on the Butterfield Green.
There is a Hackney Park User Group meeting at 7.00 pm on Thursday 11th June at Hackney Town Hall - everyone is welcome to go along and meet the Head of Parks department, John Wade.
