 Tuesday 22nd September, 7.30pm, outside Denmark Hill Station

 Key stations will lose evening service to Victoria if South London Line is scrapped

 On Tuesday 22nd September campaigners fighting to save the South London Line will stage a pyjama protest outside Denmark Hill Station to highlight the loss of an evening service to Victoria if the line is scrapped.  GLA members Val Shawcross and Jenny Jones will be joining the protestors.  The campaigners, all clad in their pyjamas, will gather outside Denmark Hill Station at 7.30pm.

At present the South London line trains provide Peckham Rye, Denmark Hill, Clapham High Street and Wandsworth Road with their only service to Victoria after about 7.30pm in the evening.
John Stewart, Co-ordinator of Lambeth Public Transport Group, said,
"Our pyjama protest will be a fun event with a serious purpose.  It is quite absurd that inner London stations will be left with no service to Victoria after 7.30pm.  Compare this to places on the underground where trains run until after midnight.  It is doubly absurd when we consider that Denmark Hill serves two major hospitals"
