Campaign Against Pay to Play

Wandsworth Borough Council is planning to charge £2.50 for our children to play in Battersea Park Adventure Playground from October 2011. We think charging children to play is unfair, instead we should be encouraging children to stay active. Please sign our petition if you oppose this decision. Copy and paste this link please:

Saving York Gardens Library

The WBC General Purposes Committee agreed the staff reduction in York Gardens Library from 4.5 to 2. WoW are going to attend the Council Meeting at York Gardens Library on Tuesday, 22nd March at 6.30pm to hear how is the 4th option going to be implemented.


Since W.O.W Mums helped keep the YG Library open and became stakeholders in Friends of York Gardens Library, we have strived to help  and keep it open with help of volunteers. We found a solution in recruiting volunteers from Job Centre and started our own W.O.W Work Club. The launch is on Friday, 24th June from 11am – 1pm in KLS cafe. Guests of Honour are Cllr Wendy Speck and Jo White, Job Centre Borough Partnership Manager.



Our campaign with London Citizens against overcrowding in Wandsworth has produced Spacemax – Families and experts working together to maximise space in their homes. It was launched on 12th March 2011.
