Well Hall Pleasaunce were recently lovingly restored to their former glory after a £2.7m facelift. The restoration project finished in 2002 and was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Greenwich Council and the South Greenwich Regeneration Agency.
“As a member of the management committee of the Pleasaunce I am delighted and extremely proud that this delightful and peaceful haven has been recognised in this way. Congratulations must be given to the Parks and Open Spaces Department at Greenwich Council who do such a great job in the day to day maintenance of the site. The Pleasaunce is well used, as shown with the well-attended fun day held on this bank-holiday Monday.”
The Pleasaunce was the brainchild of former Eltham Councillor and Labour Party national executive committee member William Barefoot. Clive adds, “The Pleasaunce is part of the legacy of the Labour Party in Eltham and I am happy to play my part in maintaining it for future generations.“
The Green Flag scheme are awarded to sites which are judged to be welcoming, safe and well maintained with the strong involvement of the local community.
