Their manifesto included specific requests on stop and search, street safety, hate crime, social care, and supporting the first ever community land trust in Lewisham.

It was developed following a listening campaign that encouraged  people to raise issues of concern and consider what a council leader and police commander could deliver to combat these issues.

Executive head teacher at Deptford Green Bob Ellis said: "This event has shown local people of all ages that local politicians are listening and are open to suggestions on straightforward achievable improvements."
