Wandsworth Council are planning to close Battersea Sports Centre.

Its loss would be widely felt. The outdoor football pitch is often used by local teenagers and young adults, who tell me they could not afford the higher commercial rates charged at Battersea Park.

The Kinghan Report into the Clapham Junction riots recommended the council should focus on the provision of sports facilities for young people. Lots of local people have told me they want more sports facilities, not less.

Everybody should have the chance to live a healthy active life - so please join me to fight the closure of Battersea Sports Centre by adding your voice to the petition.
As for the Charlie Hebdo massacre yesterday, I have nothing to add: See Icons passim.
