Partners

The Woodfield Project has three main partners:

Wandsworth Borough Council

Wandsworth own Woodfield, and have been extremely generous with their staff’s time and expertise in helping the Woodfield Project get started, and in supporting our plan to bring the pavilion and field back into public use.

The Woodfield Project are negotiating a lease of the pavilion, and a separate agreement to use the field, with Wandsworth.

Wandsworth have included the Woodfield Project in the Tooting Common Heritage Project, which is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The aim of the Tooting Common Heritage Project is “to explore, restore, conserve and enhance the cultural and natural heritage of Tooting Common. To this end, the project will work in partnership with local community groups to improve and monitor biodiversity and habitats, to conserve and restore heritage landscape and architectural features, uncover the hidden history of the Common as well as teaching people about the its rich past and biodiversity. In the process it will provide new volunteering opportunities and skills that people can use in the future while engaging them in the improvement of the Common.”

Heritage Lottery Fund

The Woodfield Project has been supported by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Thanks to National Lottery players, we have been able to start to return the Woodfield Recreation Ground and the Pavilion back to public use, and we hope to be in full operation by early 2018.

Quadron

Quadron manages green spaces on behalf of Wandsworth, carrying out horticultural, arboricultural, and grounds maintenance. In particular, Quadron maintain the Tooting Commons and Woodfield.

We hope Quadron will use Woodfield as a base for their horticultural training work in Wandsworth and Lambeth, providing skills and volunteering opportunities for people in both boroughs, and offering a route for people to find paid employment in horticultural work.
