Campaign to Save the Rec Goes National!!

The Campaign to Save Honor Oak Rec hits the national media

Radio 4 - Today programme did a piece on the shortage of burial space, particularly in London. The item highlighted the tension between open space for the living and space for burial, and focussed on our rec.

We will all, no doubt, have differing views about burial, but that is not the point at issue. Burial in its current form is unsustainable. There may be a shortage of burial space now, but even if the rec is taken for burials there will still be exactly the same problem in a few years - but no recreation ground.

What we need is a sustainable solution to the burial issue, that allows the rec to be protected for the living!
