Out and About on the South Lambeth Estate - Campaigning on Crime

Your local Labour councillors and activists were joined on Saturday by Lambeth Leader Steve Reed to speak to residents on the South Lambeth Estate.

We were collecting signatures for a petition calling for new secure entrances to be installed on the estate to help tackle crime and antisocial behaviour. A large number of residents signed up to the campaign, with many telling us that there is a problem with gangs of youths hanging around on the stairwells on the estate, intimidating local people.

Your Stockwell Labour Action Team doesn't think anyone should be intimidated in their own community, and we are strongly backing residents request for greater security.

The petition will be presented to the housing association – Presentation which runs the estate. If you support our campaign, you can let us know by contacting one of the team.
