About Love Merton

We live in one of London's greenest boroughs, where more than 100 parks and gardens mean open space is never far away. These green heavens are a great place to relax, but also boast events and entertainment for the whole family. Also right on your door step are wonderful places to visit with friends, activities to keep the kids amused, plus local businesses and independent shops.

To celebrate our great borough we have launched our, 'Love Merton' campaign and are asking residents and visitors to take pride in Merton and to love where you live, work and visit. The campaign will tackle environmental issues such as littering and fly tipping, reminding people to, 'Keep it Clean'. We will also celebrate what makes Merton great by encouraging residents to 'Love Local' and support shops, businesses and events.

We want you to join the campaign, which we hope will create a feeling of belonging, and shared sense of ownership of Merton.
