Thank you for your support in our campaign to save Carter Place Garden.
As we mentioned before Christmas, thanks to your help and the enthusiasm of the local community, we have made great progress with our campaign. In November our local Community Council agreed with our request to defer any decision until a great deal more thought has been given.
To highlight the importance of this Garden and to strengthen our voice as a local community, we are now setting up an official Friends group dedicated to saving this historic green space. This group will give us a far stronger voice with Southwark Council.
Our first meeting is on Wednesday 12th January 2011 and starts at 7pm.
The meeting is being held at Penrose House Tenants & Residents Hall on the Penrose Estate SE17 3EZ (close to Carter Place Garden).
At the meeting we will discuss:
· Progress so far.
· Next steps.
· The long term future of the garden.
In addition we will appoint Officers and a Committee and adopt a constitution for the group.
We very much hope that you will be able to come along and, if you feel able, consider getting more involved.
Please do get in touch if you have any questions or issues you would like to be raised.
Best wishes – Jeremy Leach 020-7252-5331
