Thank you for all your hard work in preserving this park. Myself and my partner recently discovered this hidden gem whilst looking for natural spaces during lockdown. Walking through the wood is an enchanting experience and a necessary space for Londoners seeking solitude and a chance to relax. Losing Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park would be a devastating loss both to the community but also to the wider citizens of London who are increasingly in need of more outside space. Furthermore, as a place of rare biodiversity in the capital, we have a duty to protect this space as we are currently experiencing a global climate emergency.

We've used the park ever since we moved here 20 years ago and our son joined Bow Beasties! The park was a lifeline for literally 100s of local people during the lockdown - helping us all to cope. I am so angry with the greed of the developers who don't care about our community. We will support this campaign all the way!

Thanks for everything folks. Ken and Dim especially. First of a number of donations to come from our household. You make this community an amazing place to live.

Having just moved to London on lockdown weekend, THCP allowed me to access nature during this difficult. Without a doubt, the best green space in London.

Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park is one of my favourite places in London. I hope everyone gets the support they need to continue looking after such a lovely magical space.

I've enjoyed walking in Mile end Cemetery Park most days in the past 10 weeks noting the spring unfold and the plants change. It is a beautiful magical place that has kept me grounded. Good luck- I hope you will be able to start your activities again soon.

I am joining the Cemetery Park Online: Birdsong this Friday. I am so looking forward to be in the nature again soon!

Love having access to the cemetery. Awesome piece of nature in the middle of East London. Keep up the good work!

I made my way through Couch to 5K in the park during lockdown. Couldn't have done it without so much beauty to distract me.

After 30 years of living and working in the borough, I only discovered this beautiful spot during lockdown. It is a gem. I love it's wildness, the birdsong, flowers and labyrinth. Thank you to all the staff and volunteers who make it such a very special place.

Thanks for looking after this beautiful place full of wild flowers hidden right on our doorstep - walking there every day has been something special to look forward during lockdown.
