(This is a copy of our enewsletter sent this week.)
Next week we have the opportunity to show Boris Johnson just how much our community opposes the super sewer in Fulham.
On Wednesday 7th March
Boris is bringing his ‘Mayor’s Question Time
’ event to Hammersmith Town Hall from 7pm to 9pm
With only two months to go until he faces the voters in the mayoral elections, we think that Boris is taking his support for granted in Hammersmith & Fulham. For a man who claims to represent all of London, he has done a very public job of supporting the campaign to move the construction site from Barn Elms and dump it in Fulham.
Boris is far from guaranteed to get re-elected and he needs reminding of that.
It is essential that we have a presence at this event to remind Boris that we do not want our community destroyed when there are other, more suitable sites available like Kirtling Street in Battersea. Representatives of the Stop them Shafting Fulham campaign are taking a delegation, supported by Greg Hands MP, to a face-to-face meeting with Boris just two days later on 9th March.
We want to go to that meeting with Boris already under no misapprehension about the scale of opposition in Fulham.
As well as attending the event and trying to ask Boris some pertinent questions we also want to make sure he receives a proper welcome when he arrives at the event. We want as many volunteers as possible to stand outside the Town Hall when the Mayor of London arrives, holding our ‘Stop the Sewer’ banner and more of our famous balloons.
If you can spare even half an hour on Wednesday evening to come and tell Boris what you think then please let us know.
Please get in touch with us for further information including action packs, hard copies of our survey, car stickers and postcards.
