Long time readers of this blog will remember that, back in May 2006, just after I was elected to Waltham Forest council, I wrote a little post about a clean up and litter picking session I was involved in with the British Trust for Conservation Volunteers (BTCV), and one of my Labour councillor colleagues, at the Marsh Lane fields in nearby Lea Bridge ward (the pic above is from that session – you can re-read that post HERE).
Mark Blaxall (pictured above next to me on the left) who worked for BTCV at the time, but has since moved back to Australia, emailed me this morning to ask if any of this blog’s readers were aware of a new set of Greater London Authority (GLA) grants worth £400,000, being made available to clean up local parks.
The GLA is asking residents all over London to vote for which park they would like to see get some help.
As a loyal, life long and permanent resident of Leyton, I obviously want our potentially very beautiful Marsh Lane fields to win, so I therefore hope that everyone reading this post will visit the voting website and vote for Marsh Lane fields!!!!!
If Mark can take the time to be voting for Marsh Lane fields all the way from Australia, I hope residents currently living in Leyton will do their patriotic duty and do the same!!!!

Happy voting and please spread the word about Marsh Lane!!!! 🙂
