Polly Robbins


I first came across HarPA in 2016, and I’ve been a trustee since 2019. I really love the atmosphere and attitude of the playground. It’s daring, creative and rebellious. I think places like Somerford Grove are so valuable to communities in London. Sadly, they’re increasingly under threat from lack of space and funding, perhaps because they don’t fit neatly into councils’ and planners’ dominant vision for cities. I’m really interested in urban design, economics and communities. I work at Outlandish, a tech workers co-operative, and I support HarPA with digital comms and whatever else crops up!
