THE 7 BRIDGES PROJECT

5 Comments

The Loughborough Junction Action Group (LJAG)is thrilled to have launched the 7 Bridges  – an arts-led regeneration  project – at an event held on 18 November at the Cambria pub.  The launch was very well attended by Lambeth councillors and officers and representatives from Transport for London, the Cross River Partnership and environmental charity Groundwork, and as a result we are now actively working on the project with councillors and officers.

The project’s objective is to improve the appearance and lighting of the 7 bridges which define the Loughborough Junction area.  The ultimate aim of the project is the regeneration of Loughborough Junction.  A pilot project is proposed for the spring of 2011 when the small bridge across Cambria Road will become the focus of “The Cambrian explosion” involving local schools, artists and arts organisations.

LJAG has recently been awarded a grant of £4,800 from the Capital Community Foundation which will allow us to employ a part-time project officer for three months. 

Attached please find the 7 Bridges proposal which we hope you will feel able to read and if you need further information or want to get involved please contact either Walter Graham Reed 020 7733 7272 or 07967 651 994 or Anthea Masey 020 7733 1744 or 07799 621 582

We look forward to hearing from you and sign up as a friend on the 7 Bridges facebook page.

The Loughborough Junction Forum is a grassroots organisation set up by local people to provide all members of the community with a way to improve the Loughborough Junction area. It is intended that it provides eyes, ears and a collective voice for the community. All participants are invited to provide accounts of what they see happening within the area and to share their concerns and ideas with the forum so that they can be collated and channelled to the relevant authorities.

  1. This is a really exciting project and makes me proud to be a resident of Loughborough Junction. I loved reading about the thinking behind the Cambria pilot and the Cambrian explosion, it is a great theme. I hope the necessary money is raised, this could be a significant lift to the area.

  2. I too agree this is brilliant news. Love the art of the 7 bridges logo. How exciting!
