The lovely Lerryn's café in Peckham is asking for support after Southwark Council restricted the use of their little tranquil garden space due to noise complaints.
Owner Lerryn has launched a petition against the council's decision saying 'The garden is 30 extra seats during the summer. So this ruling affects my (already modest!) revenue in a big way.' Lerryn also hopes to use the garden to seat diners during the day and also to grow produce and host free gardening workshops with local gardeners.
The Rye Lane café is an important community hub, serving up yummy 'stuff on toast', coffee and bevvies to locals and those who find themselves peckish in Peckham. With development in the area continuing apace, it's time to help small independent businesses like Lerryn's continue their great work.
