Fleur Anderson MP video 28 June 2023: Save Wimbledon Park update.
Please join the 'Save Wimbledon Park' campaign, sign the petition."
"...I've got a message for Wimbledon Tennis.
Wimbledon Tennis are planning to build an 8,000 seater stadium with 38 qualifying courts on what used to be Wimbledon Park.
Now we love our green spaces in London.
We've had people saving our green spaces for hundreds of years.
And this the fight now to save this green space.
Green spaces are so important for our wellbeing, for our clean air, just for our community life.
But Wimbledon Tennis are planning to take over most of this area of Wimbledon Park for these courts, but then also providing a small part of the park for public use. But they'll be closing that for 2 months of the year. And there's only permissive access granted on that. So possibly they could come and build on it at any time.
So, please join the campaign, join the 'Save Wimbledon Park' campaign, sign the petition."
