Re-open Downham Tavern Pub

We the undersigned express our support for Downham Tavern Public House. We recognise the important role that local pubs play as community hubs, where residents from different communities, of different ages and backgrounds can meet and socialise. We also acknowledge the importance of pubs as venues where community groups and civic societies can gather to organise events. Local pubs, when managed well, can help to foster a sense of community and can promote social cohesion in an area. Already Lewisham has lost nearly half of its local pubs over the past ten years and we feel it is therefore vital that we preserve the cultural, social and community value of those that remain. We therefore call on Enterprise PLC to re-open our Pub without further delay.

    2 years ago Comments: I would like to see the Downham Tavern Pub re-open as soon as practicably possible. Residents have been expressing frustration travelling out of area for another pub. It is affecting their wellbeing. It helps bring the community together among other things.
