Being inclusive

Update: 8 April : further discussion at: at what cost? and Chatsworth Road Facebook

Interesting debate taking place on Hackney Hive forum on the lack of representation from black and minority ethnic (BME) communities on the various overlapping groups (both in terms of geography and the people heading them) busy trying to promote gentrification to parts of Clapton (such as Chatsworth Road): Hackney Hive. This lack of engagement includes the Millfields User Group where issues have been picked up in past surveys of the Park but neither the Committee nor the Parks Department have done anything to address this. Membership and representation needs to better reflect the people who actually use the park.
