Our I Love Earl's Court Save It From Demolition Day was a great success! Donations to our cause were generous and we were able to raise awareness that the proposed demolitions are not a done deal! Darren Johnson AM, Chair of the London Assembly pledged his full support for our campaign and told us to keep fighting.
Local businesses showed their support for keeping the Earl's Court Exhibition Centres open by putting up artist Duggie Field's specially designed posters in their windows and inside their premises. Some also requested our donation boxes. And in the case of Brownie Box in the Old Brompton Road, they baked this fabulous cake!
Our campaign was also featured on the ITV London and BBC London websites.
Save Earl's Court campaign members were also interviewed by LBC Radio for the early morning Andrew Castle show.
Darren Johnson AM, Chair of the London Assembly proposed a motion at the 9th October 2013 London Assembly plenary session condemning the Eric Pickles and Mayor Boris Johnson's approval of the Earl's Court and West Kensington Opportunity Area plans. It was seconded by Nicky Gavron AM.
