Our 2017 Annual General Meeting will be held at 7.00pm on Wednesday 22 March. At that meeting 3 current members of the committee will retire and we are actively looking for new people to join the committee to replace them.
About joining the committee
The gardens currently belong to, and are managed by, Greenwich Council. There are currently 30 parks or gardens with Friends groups in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, and the council works with each group to manage and develop ‘their’ park or gardens. The Friends of Mycenae Gardens was formed to work with the council to protect and promote these gardens as a park that fosters the natural environment, wildlife, woodland and open space for the benefit of the whole community.
Those of the community who use the gardens value it for a variety of reasons, and often have different views on how the gardens should be used or improved. An important part of the group’s role is to balance gather and reconcile the views of all users of the gardens so that we can present a consensus to the council in relation to the way the gardens are managed and developed. Committee members play an important role in ensuring that this is achieved.
