What we need for a friendly, safe park

DSCN0754 DSCN0751The local community turned out in force for Brockwell Dog Show 2015 on Sunday 12th July. Only months earlier the annual Show had been faced with cancellation following the unexplained withdrawal of Lambeth Officer support.

DSCN0747 DSCN0767A number of local residents were determined that the Show must go on and approached BPCP for support to make this happen. They led on the event delivery – creating fantastic new publicity posters and convening a panel of celebrity judges, while BPCP provided operational support, advice and infrastructure.
