Introduction to the Group


The Grove Park Community Group was formed in 1972 following the defeat of the proposal to build Ringway 2 - an urban motorway which, if built, could have destroyed Grove Park. Since that time the Group has provided a wide range of community activities at the Ringway Centre, which is situated on land through which Ringway 2 would have run.

As well as benefiting from the services provided by the Group, any resident who lives in the Grove Park area and who wishes to get actively involved in the running and organisation of the Group, is entitled to attend the monthly General Meetings of the Group, and stand for election to sit on the various committees. All you need is an interest in local affairs and a few hours a month to spare.

For full details of the organisation of the Group and the various committees see the page Organisation & Structure.

The Group is a registered charity and receives funding and support from the London Borough of Lewisham.

The Group also applies for Grants to other funding bodies. The remainder of the Group’s income is raised from letting fees for the Ringway Centre and from social and fundraising activities organized by members of the committee.
