Guess what…we won!

Its official, we’ve won our first campaign! And if we can win this, what else could we achieve?

It took some hard work – a petition, a collection of our horror stories, twice going to the council-offices unannounced, and taking Lambeth’s road safety boss on a tour of the danger spots – but we’ve finally got the commitment of a new zebra crossing on Coldharbour Lane and the re-design of the Loughborough Park/Shakespeare Road junction. Work began last week and will be complete by the end of March.

I’m sure you’ll agree it’s a massive achievement in such a short space of time. ACORN East Brixton, only launched last October, and with the commitment of our members, we've delivered the goods in only a few months, proving that people-power works.

Now we’ve got a taste for victory and people on our side, what next!? Lots of people are talking about what the next campaign could be – making the local park fit for families, getting our landlords to maintain our homes, sorting out the street lights, or something else. Whatever we take action on next, we have the confidence that we can win, and we won't stop until we do.
