Here?s a few quick examples of some ways to get active:

Join the Save the South London Line Facebook Group

Even if you haven?t heard of the South London Line (SLL) you may well have travelled on it. It's the line which has trains running every half hour between Victoria and London Bridge via Battersea Park, Wandsworth Rd, Clapham High Street, Denmark Hill, Peckham Rye, Queens Rd Peckham and South Bermondsey. Network Rail have said that the planned reduction in terminating platforms at London Bridge - to make way for the Thameslink works - means there will not be room for the SLL in the future. If this goes ahead hundreds of local residents, patients and staff at the hospitals who had used the South London Line service to get to Victoria or London Bridge will have been robbed without consultation or warning. You can show your support for the campaign to stop the cuts by joining their Facebook group.

Volunteer in a Local School

Southwark Schools are looking for volunteer breakfast club assistants to supervise and support children at the beginning of their school day. Email us at [email protected] or call us on 0207 403 2936 to find out more!

Apply for Cleaner Green Safer Funding

Every year, Southwark?s community councils award funding to ideas put forward by local people to improve their local environment. Any idea that brings a permanent physical improvement to the environment will be considered ? that is, any idea that makes your area Cleaner Greener or Safer! For example, you could ask for: improvements to parks or community gardens, more tree planting and wildlife areas, children?s playgrounds or better lighting and fencing. Apply online here.
