Dear Vicar Tif,
Welcome to our Community! We are delighted to hear that you are the new vicar of St.Michael's Church. I am not a regular there but no from a personal view, I would like to see a church with a creche and more family services so that is very important to us.
I wondered if you were interested in an issue that is greatly affecting our local area at the moment. Wandsworth Council are proposing to re-build the library (smaller and with flats above it) over the site of what is now Alphabet nursery playground. The nursery will have no where to go and we want to stop this from happening. It is only at feasibility stage at the moment but obviously the Council will then submit planning to themselves so it is very important we put a stop to this now.
It will affect St. Michaels Church because all the building lorries and cement mixing lorries and cranes will be accessing the site via Bollingbroke Grove and past the St. Michael's Day Centre, Noah's Arc Nursery and Little Learners which won't be good at all. The noise, dust and dangerous lorries etc.
We have a petition go to Change.org and search for 'Save Chatham Hall'. Would you be able to help us with this campaign?
If you email us at email@example.com
we can then give you more details etc! There is a Public Consultation at Northcote Library on Weds 22 Feb at 5pm-8pm and the local press will be starting to cover this so we need as many names and publicity as possible as advised by Councillor Fleur Anderson at the Council who after hearing our story has expressed doubt herself in the proposals.
Again, congratulations on your new posting.
