Emily Frith, the Liberal Democrats’ Parliamentary Candidate for Lewisham East, appeared on Sky Sports News, yesterday evening, to stand up for Millwall Football Club.
She said: “We think Millwall Football Club is a huge community asset. They’ve got a fantastic trust that works with young people and older people in the community. They’re a really important part of the community here.”
Lewisham Lib Dems, including Emily, Bobby Dean (our candidate for Lewisham Deptford) and John Russell (our candidate for Lewisham West and Penge), joined the fight against the recent Compulsory Purchase Order that threatened Millwall’s stadium – and believe that the club should be central to any local regeneration plans in future.
