This weekend Hackney Labour’s campaign to save Dalston’s Kingsland Fire Station were out campaigning on Kingsland Road building support for our campaign against the closure.
On Saturday afternoon, local councillors, residents and Jules Pipe, the Mayor of Hackney, spoke with hundreds of local people, added 170 signatures to our petition, and handed out more than 500 'Save Kingsland Fire Station' newsletters.
Residents welcomed our campaign to save it, and urged more people to sign our petition to show the strength of feeling among local people.
De Beauvoir Councillor Tom Ebbutt said “It was great to be able to speak to so many local residents about the threatened closure, and explain what we're doing to lobby the Mayor of London to change his mind. Kingsland Fire Station is an integral part of De Beauvoir Ward and provides a vital service to Dalston, Haggerston and many other parts of Hackney.”
If you haven't yet signed the petition and would like to you can do so here.
Kingsland Fire Station is one of seventeen fire stations across London which have been earmarked for closure by Mayor of London Boris Johnson. If it was to close it would leave a significant gap in fire station coverage between Old Street, Stoke Newington and Homerton fire stations. Islington’s Upper Street fire station is also under threat of closure.
You can find out more about the closure plan on the BBC News website.
