Frankham Street mural

As part of the council's work to improve Frankham Street, a mural has been commissioned for the back of the buildings which face on to Deptford High Street.

Apparently residents wanted something that would celebrate Deptford's rich maritime past, so all four choices are paintings of the River Thames and the docks by Deptford, from the collections of the National Maritime Museum.

Click here and you can vote on your favourite of the four options.

On Friday there will also be a public 'meet and greet' in Giffin Square. "This is your opportunity to meet with the people who will be building the new Deptford lounge and Tidemill school and have any of your questions answered", the press release says. "We will be on Giffin Square from 2pm - 6pm". If you haven't made up your mind about the murals by then, you can vote at Giffin Square.

I can't make it, so perhaps someone can find out for me what the latest delay is with the railway station.... *sigh*

I really like the idea. I wish there a Deptford Mural on my road blocking out two houses on my road responsible for flytipping!

hi anon

the best way of dealing with flytipping is to report it and if you are in Lewisham, the 'love lewisham' team are pretty efficient at dealing with it. You might also find that if it's a regular problem, although it's a bind to have to keep reporting it at first, it might also prompt some additional action to be taken against persistant offenders. You can report the problems online at http://www.lovelewisham.org/Public/Images.aspx, upload pics if you have them, and follow progress on the site. Good luck!

The delay is due to leaves on the tracks at London Bridge.
