Campaigners bid to save Honor Oak Community Centre

A campaign has been launched to save Honor Oak Community Centre from the threat of closure. The building on Turnham Road, SE4, has been earmarked for redevelopment as housing.

It currently provides facilities for community activities and private parties, including wedding and funeral receptions. Its facilities include a Main Hall for up to 200 people and regular activities include sports, parent and toddler clubs and food bank services.

To sign the petition now and prevent this community space being lost, click here.

The need for homes versus community resources...

The need for a verb....

I for one am very happy this is in the works. The residents of Turnham Road are seeing more negatives than positives from the community centre. We are regularly kept awake into the early hours by unauthorised parties, fights and general noise pollution at the centre far past the licensed hours of operation.

I attend a couple of events there, however I do believe the centre attracts a certain group of people who have not been following rules or having consideration for local residents. I think this would be better situated away from family homes/heavily residential areas.

Hoping that the 300 signatures on the petition won't cause the closure to be stopped. If you do sign this, please take a walk past the centre after midnight on a Sunday just so you are aware of what you're trying to save.

I am really sorry to hear local people find the community centre a source of irritation. I use it every week to play badminton and the facility would be sorely missed
