Night of 10,000 PBs
A Member (London Council for Sport and Recreation) said that the Heath should be considering how to build on this event, particularly with the forthcoming Parliament Hill Athletics Track development. They suggested that further events should look into the possibility of sponsorship.
A Member ((London Council for Sport and Recreation) commented that it was important to make sure that there was a constabulary presence by the boating pond over the summer, as this was a popular spot for illegal swimming and barbecues. An Officer replied that this was being discussed with Heath officers.
A Member (Highgate Conservation Area Advisory Committee) raised the issue of the number of placards on the Heath, and said that it was important that the vision of the Heath as a piece of countryside in London was not abandoned. They gave the example of signage in the Woman’s Swimming Pond. In reply, the Assistant Director said that signage was due to be included in the Swimming Review, and invited the Member to contact her with other examples of signage on the Heath after the meeting.
