When: Saturday 16 February 2019
Where: Carnegie Library, 192 Herne Hill Road, London SE24 0AG
Time: 12 noon – 2.00 pm
A public meeting has been organised by Lambeth councillors to address the growing concern about violent crime, especially the impact it has on young people. Last week Scotland Yard published latest figures showing that half of all knife crime offenders in London are teenagers or even younger children.
Local community leaders, elected representatives, faith leaders and local police will be present to discuss ideas to help address the issue of violent crime. It is hoped this might become a recurring series of meetings, so if you are keen to keep this issue at the top of the agenda, please take the opportunity to make your voice heard.
Helen Hayes, MP for Dulwich & West Norwood
Florence Eshalomi, Assembly Member for Lambeth & Southwark
Cllr Mohammed Seedat, Cabinet Member for Community Safety, LB Lambeth
Pastor Peter Adigun Province Head Celestial Church of Christ, Loughborough Junction
Representatives from Lambeth Police Service
Organised by Herne Hill Ward Councillors.
