Yes. A National newspaper will be covering this on Sunday. If you care and can turn up please do.


#22

Look how long other took on Millwall and that had massive coverage. I hope it works but don’t feel positive vibes. :unamused:


#23

We’re about to be live on ITV!

I’ll post pics (taken with my proper camera) soon.

In the national news:

Good to see that the Telegraph thought this important enough to bring forward publication by a day.

A Local Assembly member attended the protest (David Kurten), and was very supportive of the cause.

He’s going to ask a live question to the Mayor of London about this, which should be interesting. I hope he’ll be able to post the results here.


#32

It is terrible that trees in Camberwell New Cemetery are under threat. I’ll be asking a question to the Mayor about Camberwell Cemeteries on 22nd March.


#33

Thank you and welcome to SE23.Life.

Excellent, David - from our prior chat, and FYI others - the Assembly meetings are open to the public, so if anyone would like to hear Sadiq Khan’s response first-hand, you can :slight_smile:

Quick question. Other than support, does the London Mayor have any influence on the outcome? Can he intervene in a meaningful way?


#36

He could do if he chose to, cf Garden Bridge. The incumbent and previous mayors seem to prefer to sit this one out. An almighty shame as this is surely a test case for London and nationally.

Does anyone know what is happening the land right next to the tracks? There has been a lot of work going on here over the last month - hopefully not for more cemetery space…
