The Fulham community makes its voice heard

January 30th, 2012 | Posted by admin in In the news | What you can do to help

… over 1,000 questionnaires already completed!

Thank you to everybody who turned out on Saturday to support our campaign action day, we were overwhelmed by the help we received from local residents.

On Saturday Fulham residents went out to campaign to save their neighbourhoods with an Action Day against the Thames Super Sewer.
Volunteers manned stands at Fulham Broadway and Sainsbury’s Sands End, speaking to hundreds of local people to explain why we oppose Thames Water’s plans.
We were a little shocked to learn how many people still didn’t know about this  threat  to our community, highlighting how poor Thames Waters consultation has been and how little they care about the views of local people.

The Hammersmith & Fulham Chronicle sent a photographer to capture the events on the day with a photo call of local children and residents beside our new banner on Wandsworth Bridge.
Already over 1,000 local people have completed our questionnaire, with more signing up every day.
All of them have recorded their opposition to Thames Water’s plans to build a massive construction site on Carnwath Road and devastate our local neighbourhood for years.
With this level of local opposition arrayed against them we can force Thames Water to think about the harm their proposals will do and the enormous fight they will face if they go ahead.
Our campaign now has momentum and widespread support for a final push before the consultation deadline on 10th February. We will be writing to you again later this week with details of our next action day and other campaign activities.
In the meantime, we need everyone to continue to spread the word about the threat from Thames Water and get all your friends, neighbours and work colleagues to complete the questionnaire before 10th February, at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FulhamSewer
We can stop this but only with your support.

Thank you
