WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT LIFE IN SE1?
Catriona Robinson is researching regeneration, local
needs and the faith communities in London South
Central, as part of a project initiated by local
churches. She's posted a number of questions to SE1
residents in the forum on the London SE1 website:

* What's good about living here?
* What could be better?
* What are your hopes for future of SE1?
* What are your fears for the future of SE1?
* What would you like to see the local faith   
  communities doing/being in SE1 now - and in the
  future?
* How optimistic are you about the future of SE1? (On a 
  scale from 0 to 10)

If you'd like to answer the questions, post your
response in the forum or send an email to
overhere@surfaid.org - respondents get a free
invitation to the presentation of the research findings
(early May).
