Please help the Mayor of London make a simple choice

Affordable Housing or Industrialised Cruelty?


The Mayor of London – Boris Johnston – is considering a proposal to develop affordable housing in Walthamstow North London. Although the local council have approved the plans – there is a real threat that the Mayor will overturn their decision and refuse the plans – allowing for the return of racing and the gambling on dogs to Walthamstow.

Throughout this process – there is one voice that has been silenced and that is the voice for the greyhounds.

A peaceful awareness event has been organised for Monday 25th June at 2pm – outside the disused stadium in Walthamstow.

We will be inviting local residents and the media to come and talk to us and meet the greyhounds.

Long serving advocate for greyhounds – Annette Crosbie OBE – will be attending and we are encouraging all greyhound adoption groups to bring their dogs along to highlight the already extreme pressures they face in finding homes for retired greyhounds.

The address for the stadium is Chingford Road, Walthamstow E4 8SJ. It is situated just 10 miles from both the M11 and M25 and yards from the North Circular (A406)  –  a map can be found here

Facebook users can access details of the event here

There is a large grassed area in front of the stadium – ideal for dogs.  Ample car parking is available and free if you make an in-store purchase at Sainsburys.

If you need help with transport or with further information – please email or phone 07904305251

Please try to attend this important event – be a voice for the dogs and stop this cruelty from returning to Walthamstow!
