The Dulwich Society is pleased to have completed two small projects in Dulwich with the help of funding provided by the London Borough of Southwark’s Cleaner Greener Safer (CGS) scheme. 

The first of these was to refurbish the plinths for the two sets of double benches in Clarke’s Green, near the Dulwich Village/Village Way junction. These have been re-laid on proper bases, using the existing, and some new, York stone to replace the previous mix of concrete and stone. The benches are heavily used by parents and children at Dulwich Village schools.

The second project was improving the planting of Dulwich Village roundabout. The vigorous New Zealand flax has been removed to improve visibility across the roundabout, past plant losses have been replaced and new lavender has been planted in the old memorial fountain.

James Thompson, Chair of the Dulwich Society, said: “We are grateful to Southwark and the CGS staff for supporting these two projects, which were backed by Councillors Margy Newens and Richard Leeming, under its very useful Cleaner Greener Safer scheme”.
