A chance to improve New Cross

On the community survey we did a few years ago (the one where you all said the thing Telegraph Hill needed most was a cafe!) one of the things that people liked least about the area was New Cross.

With this in mind, a few organisations in the area are starting to work together to do something about New Cross. They already identified key issues (at the 170 AGM) and now there will be bi-monthly meetings in different locations in the area to involve groups and individuals who are more interested in improvement than in moaning.

Care about food? 7.30pm Sept 8th

The New Cross Transition Food Group is interested in what we eat. Where it comes from, how it is grown and paid for and stored and cooked. And most importantly what we can do to improve our personal food chain. Please come and join us to discuss this universal topic. Informal, friendly meeting.
