However our campaign took a big step forward this week with the opening of our campaign shop at 252 Brockley Road.
It's open 10am - 7pm daily (volunteers permitting), and will be our base for the duration of the local and general election campaigns.
Do pop in if you'd like to say hello or to:
- Find out a bit more about our policies and pick up a mini manifesto.
- Browse our range of second-hand books for sale at £1 (from next Tuesday; donations of good quality books welcome)
- Find out more about how you can support our campaign.
For those who don't remember, this is the shop as it was before. After a busy day of moving tombstones (no, really!), sweeping and mopping, by the end of Monday our campaign shop was starting to take shape.
Crowley Memorials have moved to a larger site on Stanstead Road. Our lease on 252 Brockley Road is just until after the general election, and Home2U estate agents are looking for a longer-term tenant for after that. The shop needs a bit of work doing to it (we have strategically-placed spider plants to absorb some of the water leaking through the roof and it's flipping freezing due to lack of insulation), but it's in a prime location. There is also a huge cellar area that would be ideal for someone needing workshop space. It would be great to see a good A1 retail use on this site again once we've vacated it.
*For those wondering, yes, I did pick up that litter by the door, but didn't notice it until after I had taken the photo unfortunately!
