Ladbroke Grove Pret-a-Manger land theft

Notting Hill, London. Fri 9 Feb 2018

 


 'This is OUR community land give to us Grove ordinary people ... No Prep Needed, No Pret-A Manger wanted'

 This was the third night running of protests outside Pret. Most of those taking part live locally so it isn't far to go

 and they intend to keep up the protests.

 The bugle made a loud noise if not always a predictable note

 A poster points out there are 12 good primary schools already in the area and an expensive prep school isn't needed

 Councillor Rock Feilding Mellen went into hiding after his disgrace over the Grenfell cladding which made the

 fire a disaster, moving out of the area to a Chelsea flat and the family castle

 

 

 
     
 'G K Chesterton, The Napoleon of Notting Hill,- would not like this at all, this is OUR Land! Westway 23' ' NO Pret NO Prep - this is theft of community space'

 

 The tambourine and bugle certainly added to the noise but didn't make this a musical protest!

 

 

 

 and they were joined by many loud voices

 

 

 

 

 The area is a busy one with many people walking past on both sides of the road
