Turning around a delapidated but much loved shop.

Greenwich Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

There is a small shop in ShawBrooke road se9 under the railway bridge that has been empty for many years now. We have always wanted it opened up again but the Proposals have been rubbish!! They want to turn it into a late night off license and the community are against this. The last thing we need is more temptation for those with alcohol problems. We believe it will also increase crime in the are and offers nothing to the community. I would love the opportunity to turn it into a salon for the whole community, young and old alike.

What we'll deliver:

  • Bring a munched love community building back to life
  • Offer employment and training to local residents
  • Offer services to people unable to travel far

Why it's a great idea:

Because we have very limited services in the area at present but they are regenerating the are around it. This little corner of our world seems to of been overlooked so I want to wake it up.

Steps to get it done:

  • Refurbishment

I would like to help the elderly in the area by offering them Discounted services for nail cutting and treatments to help with medical conditions.
