'You don't know what you've got til it's gone' so the lines of the song go. Yesterday, Saturday 29th October, local political group, Lewisham People Before Profit, led an action to retain golf at Beckenham Place Park. They write: "Beckenham Place Park hosts the last municipal golf course in Inner London and the oldest in England. Lewisham Council wants to close it on 31st October along with the cafe which is used by golfers and other park users. A legal challenge has been mounted and we hope to persuade the Council to allow the cafe and golf course to continue until work starts on their redesign of the park." See video of the action here: Here's a link to Lewisham council's deliberations on the matter http://councilmeetings.lewisham.gov.uk/ieListDocuments.aspx?CId=139&MId=3866 Please note: The South East London Peoples Assembly Against Austerity (Selpa) post this to highlight community based activism.
