Saturday 21st May Cllr Alison Moore joined local residents to drum up support for the Old Barn Action Group in East Finchley during a series of Pop Up Photo Protests (PUPPs) outside local landmarks to help raise awareness of their campaign to save the Old Barn.
The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness that the Old Barn Community Centre has been taken over by Rev Geoffrey Muhoro and that he appears to be excluding local residents from using the facilities. He recently doubled the rents of the existing user groups forcing them to quit using the building, and has rejected 94 applications from local residents to become members of the association that currently runs the building. Even Barnet Council are concerned, summoning Rev Geoffrey Muhoro to a meeting last Thursday to account for his actions.
To make sure that as many people as possible become aware of what is happening, the Old Barn Action Group are organising a series of events to drum up support for their campaign. The Pop Up Photo Protests (PUPPs) are aimed at generating a lot of photos that can then be posted via social networking sites to help raise awareness of this local campaign to save the Old Barn.
