Join the rebellion - fight the Death of Star Canteen

Lewisham Council-backed pop-up restaurant the Catford Canteen is closing. Funding for the project is due to finish at the end of this month and the canteen is due to close, despite its popularity.

However, the Council owns the premises it uses and Canteen-superfan Helena thinks it's time to lobby the Council to extend its support, at least until new tenants for the unit are found. She writes:

If there is enough public protest at this, then we might be able to convince the council to keep this wonderful initiative going. I'm not affiliated with them, I just think it's a great place.

Please tweet @lewishamcouncil, @cllral (the local deputy mayor) and @catfordcanteen to ask them what we can do to keep this project going. Use #savecatfordcanteen . You can also with your views.
