Thursday (12th Nov): Action for Lewisham meeting, 7.30pm, the Tabernacle, Algernon Road. A meeting organised by local residents concerned at the impact of the Lewisham Gateway, Loampit Vale and other big Lewisham town centre developments will have on the area. Although the development has now been approved by Lewisham’s Strategic Planning Committee, the organisers of the meeting feel there are still avenues that can be followed in order to persuade the Council and developers to provide a plan more suited to the area, and more in keeping with future needs (eg low energy). They say they are not against high density developments per se, but want good quality housing to meet local needs.
Saturday (14th Nov) Transition Brockley is excited to present FLUX at Brockley Social Club on Saturday 14th November. It's a night of music, magic and dance, with a freecycle twist - bring your old unwanted stuff and let our resident magician transform it into something new.. There'll be a Wheel of Fortune, live band, magic, DJs and more. All ages welcome, come ready to play and have fun... and please let all your friends and neighbours know and help us make the night a success!
