Clean up of Nursery Row Park Entrance at East Street market

Clean up of Nursery Row Park Entrance at East Street market

The clean-up of our important East St market entrance has made big strides – we were awarded a Cleaner Green Safer fund grant to clean up our cluttered entrance with East St market in 2014/5, and thanks to the tireless work of our Project Manager Nils Battye (negotiations with BT took 18 months!), we are delighted to announce that:

a) two redundant phone boxes have been removed

b) the leaking pipe, leading to a constant puddle, has been mended (although there are still drainage issues!)

c) the redundant lean-to against the wall has been removed (this was encouraging anti-social behaviour

d) the telephone exchange boxes have been wrapped in wonderful market/park images

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do, and thanks to Southwark Council and our ward councillors for our grant!
