Who is The People Verses New Covent Garden Market?

We are everyday business owners looking for your support to help fight our asbestos case against the management company at Covent Garden Market Authority. 

We believe London is one of the greatest cities in the world and one of the safest for our staff - or at least that is what we thought when we were mis-sold a lease at a government managed site at New Covent Garden Market!  

Like many small businesses, we invested our life savings into securing premises and was assured that New Covent Garden Market was the perfect site for our start-up. We ploughed money into improving our unit and employed over 30 people from local communities. Although this stretched us, we were confident that we had all the right ingredients to make our events and catering business a big success.

However the story does not end well, as after spending over £500,000 on growing our business we were forced to suddenly vacate our premises to prevent staff from becoming seriously ill from asbestos poisoning. We had no choice!

Negligence From Covent Garden Market Authority

New Covent Garden Market is managed by the Covent Garden Market Authority. They are a government funded authority and therefore have a responsibility to the people. THEY SAY that they operate in a fair way and promote openness and transparency. However, they have turned their back on us and will do it again unless they are held ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS. They make millions of pounds in profit every year and their actions are SHAMEFUL and simply not acceptable! With YOUR HELP we will fight to bring them to justice, as they cannot get away with such shameful and dangerous negligence!

What is asbestos? 

Asbestos is the name given to a group of naturally occurring minerals used in certain products, such as building materials to resist heat and corrosion. 

What are the dangers? 

The inhalation of asbestos fibres can cause serious diseases of the lungs and other organs that may not appear until years after the exposure has occurred.  According to the UK Health and Safety Executive, abestos-related conditions are responsible for about 4,000 deaths a year.

PLEASE SUPPORT US ... WE WOULD LIKE TO RAISE SUFFICIENT FUNDS TO PAY FOR LEGAL COSTS, ALLOWING US TO BRING A CASE AGAINST THE COVENT GARDEN MARKET AUTHORITY. THEIR NEGLIGENCE HAS RUINED OUR BUSINESS AND SO MANY OF OUR EMPLOYEES LIVES. YOUR SUPPORT IS TRULY APPRECIATED!
