The launch event went ahead on Saturday despite the snow and I was so impressed by the number of people who braved the freezing conditions to have a chat and share their ideas. Here are some of the thoughts people shared.
There were some really great conversations going on too, we heard of an idea for a overhead garden in Peckham, lots of great business ideas, thoughts for film events, ideas to use the multi-story car park, loads of offers to get involved, a community garden, monthly markets, communal cooking, art exhibitions and many many more!
The Purple Ladies came to brighten the place up with their inprovisation, a big thank you to them!
And everyone kept warm with a mug of hot lemon and ginger and made smoothies on the Smoothie Bike. Local design studio JailMAKE generously made two beautiful benches for the event, thank you to them and thanks to Peckham Plex for providing us with shelter. Thank you also to the army of helpers Sustrans or otherwise that helped to make it happen on the day.
Extra big thanks to everyone who came on Saturday, and for those that missed it there will be plenty of opportunities to get involved starting 11th May. More details to follow, get in touch if you want to join the mailing list!
