A great display at People’s Day (8th July 2006)

QWAG took its Lewisham Gateway campaign to the people at Lewisham’s annual festival.

The QWAG pitch attracted a steady stream of visitors throughout the adternoon, the majority of whom were either unaware or only had a vague idea about the Lewisham Gateway development. Once they had been told what the results of the proposal would be on the open spaces and rivers in the town centre most were in favour of our campaign to move the roads four more metres away from the Quaggy and restore the river properly.

QWAG’s recently published newsletter, which tells people how to object against the current planning application and support QWAG’s proposal instead, was in great demand. This confirms our belief that the majority of people who were consulted are unaware of how their wish to open up the rivers and create more green space appears to have been largely disregarded.
