Councillor Browne said: “Strong local partnerships are very important to enabling initiatives like this and in ensuring that vital issues like conservation are kept at the heart of the community.”
The Conservation Volunteers community project officer Michael Bury said: “It was a great opportunity for the Mayor to see the efforts of our wonderful volunteers, who are out and about in Haringey’s parks and green spaces every week.”
Railway Fields is London’s first Green Hubs which one of the major projects by the Conservation Volunteers across the UK.
