I got an email the other day about Matthews Yard. A really lovely and somewhat quirky space in the older part of Croydon. It’s being threatened by a developer who wants to turn the site into luxury apartments. Of course we really need more luxury apartments to keep on gentrifying more and more of London. Yeah, right!
So I’ve added my voice to keeping Matthews Yard going. Croydon needs more spaces like this and not a load more luxury apartments to push out local people. If you want to do the same then sign the petition here. If you want to know more about what Matthews Yard has done since 2012 when it launched, check this out.
