Maryon Wilson Park is on Thorntree Road Charlton, London, situated nearby to Maryon Park. The animal care centre is hugely popular with both locals and visitors to the area. It's an oasis of calm in a bustling area and should be saved for everyone!
Greenwich Council are seeking to offload the responsibility and costs of the animal centre in their budget cuts. Our petition aim is to convince the council that this is a mistake and is totally against the wishes of the local electorate.
The park serves many local schools and people travel from far & wide to visit. It is one of the distinguishing and defining features of the area - it's loss would be far-reaching, detrimental to the area and community.
We, the undersigned, call on Greenwich Council to maintain funding of Maryon Wilson Park Animal Care Centre beyond 2012, for the benefit of citizens within and beyond the borough.
It is one of Charlton's defining and distinguishing characteristics and must remain within the public domain, available for all to use.
The Save Maryon Wilson Animal Care Centre petition to Greenwich Council was written by Claire and is in the category Environment at GoPetition.
