Brimmington Park Festival 28th June 2014

In spite of the torrential rain twice, we had an enjoyable time at Brimmington Park Festival on Saturday. Lots of visitors, and keen interest in our exhibition information about Peckham town centre. This stimulated as usual much useful discussion. Interesting festival activities, and stalls covering a wide range of interests, and local small businesses and groups.

Brimmington Park Festival & Clifton Crescent

reminder for Saturday tomorrow 28th June Brimmington Park Midsummer Festival from midday to 6pm – just off the junction of Asylum Rd and Meeting House Lane. It promises to be a great local day out for enjoyment and information. Come and meet Peckham Vision and take opportunity to find out about and discuss developments in central Peckham. It is in a lovely green space in east Peckham alongside beautiful Clifton Crescent: Peckham Vision’s sister organisation the Peckham Society was born in 1975 in the campaign to save Clifton Crescent, a magnificent early Victorian terrace.  Info on Brimmington Park Festival:


Peckham Rye Station North Wing Retail Unit

An online local petition to Network Rail has been started “to represent local residents’ views on the potential use of the North Wing Retail Unit within Peckham Rye Station.” This unit has recently been restored and is ready and available for letting for commercial retail use. Getting the right kind of use of value to the community is of great interest to all who care about the future of Peckham town centre. The petition is here: The text is copied and pasted here:
**Peckham has a rich and vibrant heritage, filled with a mix of cultures and a warm local history. The decision as to who to grant this space to will play a key role in the future of the area. The unit will represent the cornerstone of the re-development of Peckham Rye Station and therefore it is integral to grant this space to the right group. Therefore, this petition is to ask Network Rail to please take the following key points into consideration when deciding who will be awarded this highly important space. Read more of this post

Brimmington Park Festival Sat 28th June

If you live on the eastern side of Peckham, do try to visit Brimmington Park Festival this coming Saturday 28th June from midday to 6pm. Open of course to all, but in short walking distance for people on the eastern side. Brimmington Park is just off the junction of Asylum Rd and Meeting House Lane.  Peckham Vision will be there with our mobile exhibition on info about developments in central Peckham, and our increasingly interesting stall of things about Peckham! The Festival promises to be great fun. We would be delighted if you were able to drop by and see us and catch up on developments in central Peckham. It is always a pleasure to see familiar faces walk up, or to meet for the first time local people who follow our adventures!
