Children at Kings Cross: New independent grassroots user group for the betterment of Coram’s Fields

Come and join us on Sunday the 19th. of  June 2016, 17.45


Fellow parents and carers of the wider Kings Cross and Bloomsbury area have worked for eight months to set up a user group of interested stakeholders (e.g. parents, children, neighbours and others) to have a voice on the experience and future of Coram’s Fields.

After some critique emerged on various points of how Coram’s Fields  developed over the last few years, there was much desire by parents consulted to set up an independent, constructive and accountable user forum. Its purpose should be the  engagement with  the management and board of the trust of  London’s biggest children playground, Coram’s Fields (and Hamsworth Memorial Trust).

By adding our voice on a regular and consistent basis, we are hoping to be able to help Coram’s Fields become not only the  biggest but also the best and most important kids play ground. Nothing is more important than the opinions of the actual people who use the grounds and we are hoping that with the user group in place, that nothing stops the growth of the grounds as one that is true to its mission, a haven for play of our children.

We already had good meetings with the management and trust who support the idea.

We have our inaugural meeting this coming Sunday 19th. of June 2016, and what’s more there is a talk on Creative Play Outdoors.

As a new group we very much depend on the initiative,  goodwill and time of interested parents and carers. So if Coram’s is a place your kids use, do join us on Sunday 17.45 at Guide Hall Coram’s Fields.
