Yesterday’s adjournment of the Lewisham Cabinet meeting considering the ‘New Bermondsey’ Compulsory Purchase Orders, allows welcome breathing space for cool and calm reflection by all sides.
This is however merely a postponement, not a cancellation.
Therefore our work continues as we continue to review the many questions that the current scheme has raised and, by doing so, help defend the club that we love.
We urge Lewisham Council to now meet with Millwall FC at the earliest opportunity to explore ways in which the borough can both retain its professional football club and community scheme; as well develop an amicable and economic future for all.
It is in the interests of all parties that a way out of this mess be found. The loss for all involved is simply too great.
Finally, we thank everyone who has lent their support to our campaign.
The amount of public, private and political support received so far by the AMS has been humbling. We thank you all, whichever club or political group you support. It will not be forgotten.
