The Liberal Democrats will be in Peckham Rye, around the Café and One O’clock Club next Tuesday (25/08) at 12, speaking with parents and discussing how to make Peckham Rye a better place to bring up children. We have Councillor Lisa Rajan, the executive member for children's services on Southwark Council, coming along too; so this is your chance to speak directly with the council member responsible about issues which are important to you.
I know many parents have had issues with the admissions process for primary schools this year and so we'd really like to hear your experiences so we can work to ensure that any problems which can be sorted are done so for next year's applications. Ultimately, Peckham Rye needs more primary schools. Achieving this will take time and so we need to try to get things fixed in the meantime. Southwark Council has applied to the Government's Department for Children, Families and Schools for extra money which should help, if we're successful.
We also really want to hear people's views on the play facilities in Peckham Rye Park and if there's anything we can do to make things better.
Please come along and talk to us! If you can't make it please feel free to message me with any comments, or post them on here.
