Join our special workshop on Friday 27th March

  • Find out more about your community rights
  • Nominate local buildings and open space as “assets of community value”
  • Use your voice to change Mitcham for the better

Mitcham Cricket Green Community & Heritage is running a special workshop to explore the potential of new community rights to make a difference to Mitcham.

This will run on the evening of Friday 27th March in the cricket pavilion – the first building in Merton to be listed as an asset of community value.  There was strong demand for the workshop at our recent Open Meeting.

We have teamed up with Civic Voice – the national charity for the civic movement – to run the event.

It will include a short walkabout, expert presentation and an opportunity for you to discuss and identify potential buildings and land to be recognised for their contribution to the community.  We will produce an action plan for Mitcham which identifies the buildings and land we most value.

It would be helpful to know if you will be joining us – please send an email to info@mitchamcricketgreen.org.uk
