Beckenham Place Park - Mansion occupied

On Monday evening the cafe at Beckenham Place Park and the golf course were closed by Lewisham Council and Glendale, the contractors.  Later that evening members of Lewisham People Before Profit entered the building without any damage being caused and took control, securing the building which had been left with no security, an open door and a faulty burglar alarm.

Save Beckenham Place Park from Bulldozing Bullock

There was a playful atmosphere on the grass outside the old Town Hall at 2pm last Saturday, 29th October, for a one hour protest against the reduction in facilities at Lewisham's largest park, Beckenham Place Park. You can see a video here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3aIrY2O6HI

Threat to Lewisham Libraries. Tell the council what you think

Lewisham Council is planning £45 million of cuts to borough services as part of the austerity measures enforced by the Conservative government. 1 million of these are proposed to come from the library service. Lewisham council have proposed a number of ways the cuts could happen. Their preferred plan is to acheive most of the cuts (£800,000) through redundancies, and keep the libraries which have lost their staff open on a  voluntarily run basis, as has already been done with Crofton Park, New Cross and Sydenham Libraries.
