Southwark Council crack me up, they (with a straight face or pen!) send a letter to all Tea Trade wharf to seek permission to place a mobile phone mast on the top of the building. And, in the same week make a decsion to close down a lovely addition to the street without consultation.
I know the two issues are totally separate but it shows me what a bunch of clowns are running local councils in the UK nowadays when both issues are even considered.
I don't know what to say, if this is all true I am shocked by the council's behaviour. This flower shop has been the least disturbing of pretty much any business run in Shad Thames. As others have said here, it has been a delight to pass by it every day and ocassionally use its services.
I look forward to hear how this develops and how one can help provide any support for the owners to get a fair review done.
Hooray!!!Yes,igloo is opening again tomorrow.Thanks Sidi for posting the correct petition address.Please do sign it still as I haven't had the green light yet from the council to trade as I used too.However,please come down and say hi as it's going to look great ( I hope ).Politically,things are moving.Simon Hughes is doing his thing ( really good guy ) and am hoping to hear from the local ward councillor very soon.
Local people have been amazing.I'm sincerely touched.Met a gentleman by chance today who,while in a cafe in Shad Thames,said he was writing to Simon Hughes,but had just popped out to get a coffee and was going to finish off the letter on his return.
The 'good people' have restored my faith in humanity.
Please carry on writing/e mailing as I still need your support.
