Kensington Primary School
We knew very quickly that we wanted to improve our local park for our Make a Difference Challenge. One of the first things we did was a local walk to identify the issues.
We found broken paving stones, litter, dog mess and fly tipping. In the park we found out that the toilets needed updating...yuck! There were signposts for a zoo but no animals.
We did a questionnaire about Plashet Park and asked people what they would change. We wrote to important people to ask them about reinstating the zoo. We want it back!
We then did speeches in the park. It was scary but very exciting. Our MP, Stephen Timms, came too, We drew plans for the park. Our project is still going on-we want to get it right
