FANTASTIC turnout yesterday for Southwark Council's last public event on their cemeteries consultation.About 150 people attended and the questions and comments gave the message to the council loud and clear:
that our community want the Rec to stay as an open green space.
Improved and not used for burial.
BUT it was revealed that only 500 questionnaires have been returned (300 online and 200 paper ones)so
if you have not submitted yours - then do it now!
pass this onto your contacts - friends, neighbours, clubs, schools ......
you only have until 30 September - next Friday - that's when the consultation ends.
Southwark Council are still saying that the Rec "is their least favoured option" but financially it is the cheapest so you need to tell them what you think!
