Detailed objectives of affiliate groups

The following affiliated groups have provided these detailed statements of their objectives:

Hackney Marshes User Group
Hackney Marshes User Group (HMUG) are volunteers who:
   * Organise walks round the Marshes, and explore and enhance their wildlife through planting and caring for trees and hedges.
   * Work to improve the Marshes for all sectors of the community, and campaign to protect them from inappropriate development.
   * Organise free activities and skill-sharing days, and run Hackney Community Tree Nursery and Edible Forest Garden.

Hackney Parks Forum
To represent users of parks and green spaces by working in partnership with Hackney Council in the preservation, conservation, maintenance and development of those spaces for the benefit of the whole community.

Hackney Wildlife Group
To record and promote the fauna and flora of the London Borough of Hackney by surveying and collating records, and by engaging Hackney residents with the borough’s wildlife.

London Natural History Society – Qualified Statement of Support
London Natural History Society (LNHS), in line within its charitable objectives, "supports the recording and conservation of biodiversity and wildlife in the Lea Valley Park within its recording area, a circle of 20 miles radius from St Paul's Cathedral".

Millfields Users' Group
MUG is the group recognised by Hackney Council as the partner body to consult on management and development of Millfields. It aims to encourage recreation, social, play, and environmental activities, and ensure that the local community and Millfields Users are aware of proposals for development and have their views and interests recognised.

New Lammas Lands Defence Committee
New Lammas Lands Defence Committee (NLLDC) also aim to promote the use and enjoyment of the Leyton Lammas Lands, and increase understanding of their history and significance, by such means as guided walks, historical talks and social events held on the Lammas Lands. We are the re-formation of the original Leyton Lammas Lands Defence Committee founded in 1892 to "promote the interest of the inhabitants of the Parish in the Leyton Marshes or Lammas Lands".

Regents Network Contact: Del Brenner
The waterways should be used for navigation to transport people and freight, as well as providing open space and an attractive environment.

Tree Musketeers
   * Care for young trees, which includes watering and mulching, and maintaining stakes and guards.
   * Work with local people, the Council and other organisations to promote tree care in Hackney.
   * Raise awareness of the benefits of trees to the quality of life.

Waltham Forest Civic Society
The Civic Society was formed nearly 40 years ago and monitors listed buildings and conservation areas. It keeps a close eye on planning applications and objects to inappropriate developements. We were one of the founding members of the Link Road Action Group that fought the M11 Link Road and have recently supported the Friends of Lloyd Park in getting £3.5m funding to improve the park. Over the years we have supported various groups that have been formed to help protect the Lower Lea Valley and have taken a keen interest in how the LVRPA operates alongside the Waltham Forest boundary.
