Back to Save Maryon Animal Park!

Maryon Wilson Park open day - come along!

Come and join us for the Annual Open Day in Maryon Wilson Park: THIS Saturday May 21st from 10am to 4pm. There will be stalls selling plants, bric-a-brac, books, CDs/DVDs and good quality toys etc.

In spite of the impression given by statements in the local press, and responses from various Councillors, the Animal Care Centre in Maryon Wilson Park has NOT been saved.

The Council budget cut, when announced in November 2010, was to close the centre in April 2012 unless an alternative could be found. The cut was voted through at the Councils Budget meeting on Wednesday 2nd March 2011.

The Council have stated that they are looking for a future for South East London’s only Urban Animal Park but outside of the Councils budget responsibility.

If alternative funding arrangements are not found by the Council, the centre will be closed in April 2012 and the closure process would start in January 2012.
