And here''s the picture Lambeth chose to illustrate their great 'community' success.
The epitome of homogeneity
Hardly representative of the wider local community, is it?
I see Sisters of Reggae have taken up a residency there...
Community fridge network for tackling food waste set to double
Community Fridge expansion (not specifically PB but the same charity: Hubbub Foundation | Home)
Interesting to note that they think that they're best known for "Mega parties and all-day festivals"...
I was told that they charge a fucking fortune in hire charges too.
I can't think why anyone would want to get married there.
Let's bring, err, sexy back! With banter. Awesome.
It's now "South London’s top foodie heaven!"
Small can of beer £5. Yeah!
Ah yes. A greenhouse drinking/party venue.
Would you believe it? it's the exact same story in Peckham as it is in Brixton. It's unprofitable, has little connection with the existing community and the 'community hours' are all bollocks too.
Peckham Has a Gentrification Problem. A Converted Car Park Wanted to Solve It
I bet it’s very profitable for the directors.
Of course it is. I'm sure they'll all paid handsomely, despite their total failure to deliver a profit.
Read the whole article.
Agree its exactly the same story.
Why did Southwark Council do a profit share? Did they not look at Pop Brixton? Its now part of Pop business practice to agree to profit share. Which won't happen.
All the rest of article is same as Brixton.
Was this article written by Brixton Buzz? No by Vice. Expect criticism of Vice for its sloppy journalism
Its kind of depressing to be proved right about the Pop business model.
Btw saw Our new leader Cllr Jack hanging out in Pop Brixton today. Meets all Progress Labours requirements for a progressive future.
The only good thing about saving Peckham levels is that the cinema stays.
This comment in the FB Reclaim Brixton group nailed it:
