Join Hands To Save Norton Folgate
PLEASE COME AND JOIN HANDS WITH ME to create a circle around Norton Folgate as a symbolic gesture of our shared wish to see these buildings restored for new use instead of being demolished by British Land.
Three days before Tower Hamlets Planning Committee meet to decide the fate of Norton Folgate on July 21st, we want to show that large numbers of people care sufficiently to turn up and create a human chain around this historic neighbourhood.
We hope this event will be a focus for everyone who believes old buildings should be repurposed rather than destroyed, as is happening across London at this moment.
As you know, this is a subject close to my heart and so, as a gesture of gratitude to those who are willing to join hands with me on 19th July, I will give a copy of THE GENTLE AUTHOR’S LONDON ALBUM as a gift to the first five hundred people to turn up.
Registration will commence on Sunday July 19th at 2pm at a desk in Elder St, when you can sign in and be given a map of where to stand and a numbered ticket. At 3pm precisely, we ask everyone to join hands while a film camera travels the entire length of the circle around Norton Folgate. We are also keen that people take photos of themselves and share these through social media to publicise the event using the hashtag #savenortonfolgate
Afterwards, I shall be swapping the five hundred numbered tickets for copies of THE LONDON ALBUM and the event will be dispersed by 3:30pm.
If you care about the future of Spitalfields, if you care about the future of East End, if you care about the future of London, come to join hands in this historic event and bring your family, your friends and neighbours – and please spread the word.
