Friends of Greenspaces and MACS
Friends of Greenspaces Groups are any community group, user group, association, or similar, who have the sole focus of playing an active role in the management and improvement of a specific site managed by Enable Leisure and Culture on behalf of Wandsworth Council.
There are a number of Friends Groups across the borough who work to connect local people with the greenspace, help shape how parks and open spaces are improved, support public consultations and assist in securing additional funding for a particular greenspace.
If you would like to know more about a specific Friends Group, what they do and how to get involved, please click on a link in the table below. If there is no link for the Friends Group that you are interested in, please email email@example.com and we will forward your details on to them.

A MAC is an elected group of volunteers, initially set up by Wandsworth Council, to monitor and advise the Council and its contractors on the management of a greenspace on behalf of its users. There are two MACs in Wandsworth: Wandsworth Common MAC and Tooting Common MAC.
