* The film Bleacher on the Rye (working title) is a documentary about the regeneration of Peckham Rye Station and the surrounding area by the independent, activist production company Spectacle. The film pays close attention to the way the wider dynamics of gentrification are hostile to existing communities, businesses and the diverse cultures of a particular neighbourhood.

Great day as usual last Sunday at Goose Green Fair. The weather was cold but the rain kept away and there was lots of interest and fun and food! The five hours sped past as several of us were busy all day talking with our visitors. The PV mobile exhibition always is well attended and now there are several interesting things to buy on the stall. See photos!
Message from Peckham Vision: Local Council elections in London and European Parliament elections are on 22nd May. Join the Vote – Keep our democracy alive! Make sure you vote! It was a long hard struggle to win the right to vote. In many parts of the world, some still can’t vote and some die for it. So it is really important to vote to keep our democracy alive. Let’s all vote for democracy! A national campaign run by ’38 Degrees’ http://www.38degrees.org.uk/ has been supporting us all to help our neighbours to get on to the election register to make sure they can vote in the upcoming elections for local councils (in London) and in the European elections on 22 May. Now we need to encourage people to use their vote. If they don’t want to support any of the candidates or parties, explain they can vote ‘none of them’ by writing that on the ballot paper. These will be counted as spoilt papers so won’t be wasted. See leaflet here to give to your friends and neighbours: leaflet v3 election. Help revive our democracy, encourage people to use their vote even if they vote ‘none of them’.
