- The future of the bowling green - this remains vacant (except for occasional events) and there is clear desire to see it brought into some form of community use;
- BBQs: there were different views on whether a total ban was right but given that there is a ban at present residents felt it should be enforced;
- There is a desire to see a community cafe - the council did put out a tender recently but didn't receive much response to it. They will do this again in the near future.
- Residents are broadly happy with the arrangements regulating one off events at present, especially now they are sited away from the more residential parts of the park.

Our ward forum met at the Beckers on Monday night and we discussed a number of issues to do with improving Hackney Downs park that we will be taking forward as part of the review of the park's development strategy:
We agreed to hold a future forum meeting in the community room (soon to be brought back into action) at the centre of the park, probably on a Saturday morning, to discuss the park development strategy in more detail.
Thanks to all those who came along!
