Shepherd's Bush Village Hall campaign launched

Residents and voluntary groups fighting our Council's plan to flog off the village hall on Wood Lane have launched a website and petition to try to save the centre, which houses services for some of the most vulnerable in our community.

Readers will recall the particularly ill fated visit of the Deputy Prime Minister to the Hall in August last year, when Nick Clegg realised the people he thought were going to pose with him for a photo call were actually asking him to save their services. He beat a hasty retreat, filmed by the BBC, and pursued by a little girl.

I have to say this is all a bit too late really. The decisions have been taken and the developers will already be valuing the property but good luck to them anwyay. It's set to be a familiar theme across the Bush in the months to come.
