Desperately Seeking Firishta

Work has started on renovating Hatcham Gardens, a small park in New Cross in the 'Kender triangle' area. The plans include new trees, a new public drinking fountain, extra furniture and new play equipment.

Ashley McCormick from the The Building Exploratory has been doing some research as part of this project and is keen to find out more about the story behind this plaque on a wooden bench in the park. It reads reads: 'to Firishta, who tenderly took care of me, Always Loves More'. Firishta is Farsi for Angel, if that's any kind of clue. If anybody knows any more they can contact ashley@buildingexploratory.org.uk.
