Message from some local shopkeepers and local residents:
Post-riot community painting
Some of us (local shopkeepers and local residents) want to make
Parkstone Square (a turning off Rye Lane just south of Bournemouth
Road)) look more beautiful by a community cleaning and painting event,
probably in the last weekend of October.
We're inspired by Lekki Beach on Rye Lane, which showed that high
quality design can use very basic and affordable materials (black gloss
paint, white and black flock wallpaper) to stunning effect in Peckham
Many people really like this idea - we already have 35 cans of paint,
and 10 volunteer painters - but we need even more. Can you help with
any of the following?
High quality design assistance
Technical paint advice
Making posters about donation points and times and the event
Putting posters up throughout Peckham, contacting relevant networks etc
Donating paint or brushes
Staffing local paint and brush donation points
Paint and brush storage
Liaison with council officers (planning issues, contacting building
owners, post-event rubbish removal; agreement for activity already
obtained in principle)
And last but not least, the cleaning and painting itself!
If you can help with any of these, or have any additional suggestions,
please email:
Many thanks
Anna Plodowski
