Public Meeting – 7.30pm, Wednesday, 10th December

Tufnell Park Tavern

Inequality bad for Londoners

Both Rich and Poor

Did you know that London is the most unequal area of the UK and has one of the highest concentrations of extremely rich people in the world?

the advers effects of wealth and income inequality have been very much in the news recently and will get even more attention as the 2015 general election approaches. They are raising concerns across the political spectrum.

On Wednesday 10th  December My Fair London, a non-political group providing information and campaigning about inequality in the capital, is hosting a local public meeting.

The speaker will be Sean Baine, Chair of the Equality Trust. In addition to the facts about the situation in London, he will describe the serious ill effects of inequality on all of us, rich or poor, such as health problems, lower social trust, increased crime and depressed demand in the economy. He will also describe the huge social, economic and political benefits of greater equality and put forward ideas for achieving it.

The meeting will be in the coffee bar at the Tavern. All are welcome to attend and join the debate.

For more information, please contact Kathleen Greaves at kmgreaves34@googlemail.com

Tufnell Park Road Street Long Yard Sale

Sale held along Tufnell Park Road last September is joining forces with its
inspiration, the five-year-old Tufnell Park Yard Sale Bonanza, for a massive
jumble sale extravaganza on the 28th September 2014.

Where: in front gardens, on front paths, forecourts and front steps in Tufnell

Who: Local residents (to sell); anyone (to buy)

Why: i) to get rid of clutter. Easily.

ii) to make some money (some people donate all or part of proceeds to their
chosen charity).

iii) to get to know your neighbours (or catch up with them)!

To join you need to register (it’s free) with Jumble Trail http://jumbletrail.com/event/YardSale, which
will plot your address on a map, so that everyone knows you are taking part. If
you like you can also describe the kind of things you’re planning to sell and
add photos.

There is also a website http://tufnell-park.wix.com/yard-sale-bonanza
with more information and a poster to print out and display in your front

If you live in Tufnell Park, do sign up and let your neighbours know about it
too: the more people joining in near you, the bigger the cluster on the map and
the bigger the draw for people to come to your street. And of course, tell your
friends, family and colleagues who don’t live in Tufnell Park to come along to
buy as well!
