Plans are now set for our participation in what is likely to be the largest ‘civilian’ air quality testing project ever attempted in the UK. Some 150 diffusion tubes will be installed by volunteers across South East London, in an attempt to examine the impact of the major developments including the Super Sewer on local residents.
This has the potential to provide vital ammunition in our campaign against the tunnelling at Crossfields Green – we plan to install some 50 tubes in and around Deptford.
How you can help
We still need a couple more volunteers to help us install the diffusion tubes. This is relatively easy, but it is important that they are installed at the right time and that they are recorded properly. We will be holding a briefing from 11am – 2pm at the Pink Palace, Frankham House, Frankham Street (junction with Deptford Church Street) SE8 4RN on Sunday 5 January and installation in the following few days. If you can spare a couple of hours to help, let us know.
We still need your financial support for this and our other campaigning activities during 2014. Every £7 donation buys us another air quality testing tube.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your offers of help and/or cash!
For making this all possible our thanks go to the Network for Clean Air, the Greenwich Co-operative Development Agency, Joan Ruddock MP, Deptford First and countless individuals who have offered their time, money and energy.
