Further to my earlier post about the future of Walthamstow Greyhound Stadium, the consortium
has now made a serious offer to buy back the site from its new owners the Housing Association London and Quadrant. Currently the track is due to close on the 16 August so on that saturday there will be a rally and march to urge L&Q to enter into negotiations with the consortium to see if a deal can be done to keep racing at the track.  The campaign will begin with a rally at the dog track
itself at noon and will then process down Chingford Road and onto
Forest Road. There’ll be a wedding at the Town Hall so in order to
respect the wedding party, the march will pass by the Town Hall and
disperse at Spruce Hills Road. There is also a petition you can sign on-line to help show the strength of feeling on this point which will be handed to L&Q. There are 800 jobs and nearly 80 years of history at stake so
I hope you will join myself and Neil Gerrard there in showing support for the Save our Stow

by on
