Congratulations to the Friends of Carlisle Park, and to the outgoing chair Elizabeth Hossain, on the park being awarded Green Flag Status.Those of us who use the park regularly know that it's a special place and it's entirely deserved that it has been recognised officially.And this accolade is very much down to those Hampton Residents who campaigned against the council's plans to leave the park open 24 hours a day.

I understand the building is for the use of the Molesey Jaguar Sea…"
