I have recently started my new post as Community Development and Project Officer at St Paul’s Church, Deptford and here starts what I hope will be an exciting journey!
The role emerged as a result of The Thames Tideway Tunnel, a deep storage and transfer tunnel which aims to increase the capacity of London’s 150-year old sewerage system. One of the construction sites, is next to St Paul’s Church which is therefore under threat/risk from the work scheduled over the next four/five years.
This project aims at addressing new ways and solutions to safeguard this Grade I listed building and to make the church fully accessible to a diverse range of people who live in and around Deptford.
The blog will be a record of this project work, to inform people of updates, developments and potentially opportunities to get involved at St. Paul’s. I welcome your comments and feedback so please get involved! Many thanks – Antonia
