The Vauxhall Society is asking local charities to back the community campaign to retain Vauxhall Bus Station, which in an agreement between Transport for London and Lambeth Councillors to ‘improve’ the Vauxhall Gyratory is marked for demolition.
A short step away from Vauxhall Bus Station (unless of course you’re elderly, ill or piloting children) lies ‘Charity Towers’, 89 Albert Embankment. This building is home to many charities, especially for the relief of the elderly, the ill and the very young. Above are just a few of dozens. It is to the Chief Executives and the employees of such charities The Vauxhall Society and fellow campaigning community groups now turn for their support. Not for money, but to allow our posters and leaflets to circulate in the offices at 889 Albert Embankment. You can order them at email@example.com, and they’ll be delivered.
‘Charity Towers’ employees are also asked to sign the online community petition, http://chn.ge/1gdL7Rd fast nearing its 1000th signature. Why bother? Well, one idea TfL and Lambeth have for replacing Vauxhall Bus Station is to have people queue under the railway arch giving out onto Kennington Lane, Harleyford and South Lambeth Roads. In the traffic, exhaust fumes and noise? With train racket overhead? Where’s the charity in that?
