Peckham Vision is a small local team, with a large local network, which has for over 15 years taken an active close interest in planning, regeneration and related matters in Peckham town centre. We have developed an extensive communications system to about 12,000 locals within 2-3 miles of Peckham town centre through email, social media, local events. Our community studio in the Bussey Building, Stair C, 2nd floor is open on a day at the weekend. See here for the next Open Day date. Peckham Vision community shop in Holdron's Arcade, 135a Rye Lane, is open for ad hoc and publicised pop-ups, and for viewing information displays and exhibition every day. NOTE: All public events are currently suspended because of Covid and social distancing requirements.
There are 5 of us in the core team, with several others who work on a variety of aspects for the campaigns and outreach and communications. This venture is run fully by local people voluntarily. But there are just the 5 of us who handle the back office work alongside leading and coordinating the campaigns. We are aiming to recruit more volunteers to join us to share the back office work. There is more information about this below. Flexibility, availability, continuity and reliability are key to this. There are also lots of other great ways of getting involved when Covid complications allow.
If you would like to see how you could help the work behind the scenes to keep the show on the road, and / or how to get involved in the campaigns and for any further information, please: follow us on Facebook or Twitter to learn about the work, and let us know what you think you might be able to offer to help. Our usual ways of getting to know you and discussing ways to help through our public events are suspended because of Covid.
