POSSIBLE CLOSURE OF TOOTING BEC RUNNING TRACK – We have requested if we would consult our members regarding the closure.
The response to our petition from local residents and users of the track has been overwhelming. In less than a week we have collected hundreds of signatures, and support is increasing all the time.
