COMMITEE

THE MPGA supports and preserves London's green spaces. To do this we rely on our hard working Committee who are all volunteers, many with specialised experience in the horticultural world. Each member plays a vital role in the running of the Charity, as we have no paid staff. The Committee is led by our dedicated and energetic Chairman Rex Thornborough, who we were delighted to welcome on board in 2020
