Royal Parks Update (early March 2021)

This month as you’d expect there’s a spring theme to all our social media activity. While we will be making the pressures on the parks from the huge visitor numbers known to our followers, we’re doing it by continuing to explain the work of the park teams in relation to protecting the landscapes and conserving the wildlife, as we build towards a campaign later in spring. We are also joining with London’s other park organisations to agree a comms piece on the issues of increased footfall, litter etc before the lockdown restrictions ease further at the end of the month.

Next week promises to be busy as we will be sharing content for International Women’s Day and announcing an update on the Movement Strategy trials. We also hope to announce the winners of our winter poetry competition. As always your support in sharing our messages is much appreciated. We try and keep up with everything you’re putting out on your channels but if there’s something in particular you would like to make us aware of please get in touch.
