It's nearly Christmas time and we wanted to bring a bit of festive cheer to Deptford High Street.
We used to have a Christmas Tree on the High Street every year, but this stopped recently as a result of the huge funding cuts the Council is facing. We think it would be a shame for the local community and traders on the high street if we didn't have one again this year.
We had one last year which was paid for our of local assembly funds. This year the local assembly will be providing half of the funding (£450) but we need raise the other half locally. So we hoped you could help...
We will be approaching local businesses and groups to contribute, but if you can help put some money towards this, please do.
The money will cover the 20ft tree, the cost of installation, and lights and decorations. Everyone would be very welcome to join for a mince pie at the lighting of the tree which will be in early December.
