Save the Green Backyard!
In 2012 we learned that despite celebrating much of our work, Peterborough City Council (PCC) were planning on selling the land that the Green Backyard is situated upon for development, putting our future in doubt. An ideal way forward for us would have been to secure a long term lease on the land to continue our community work, however due to the economic climate PCC felt they were unable to do this. As such we have been left with a stark choice of either buying the land outright or leaving and seeing 5 years of hard work destroyed. The feeling that this must not be allowed to happen was shared by thousands of residents who mounted a petition and letter writing campaign, you can read some of their heartfelt comments here.
Why should we stay?
To help secure the project we are asking for donations, either one offs or regular, as well as support with fundraising events and ideas. It’s very simple and quick to do and will help the future of Peterborough and its citizens. Please click here to donate now:
