Light Up The Bridge - help us crowd fund!
Herne Hill Railway Bridge is leaky, rusty, dimly lit and awash with pooping pigeons. BUT it could be so much better...a beautiful icon that connects up the centre of Herne Hill, puts us on the map, and draws people under the bridge so that all of our local businesses benefit from better footfall.
WE HAVE A ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY to create an iconic, urban-scale lighting and signage installation, while Network Rail close the bridge for reinforcement works this summer. Boo hiss we hear you say, but wouldn't it be nice if we were left with a really stunning legacy for the area after weeks of unavoidable traffic and trade disruption? We think so.
We are applying for funds left, right and centre (including from Network Rail). But the clock is ticking. So, we've taken the matter into our own hands while the wheels of funding organisations grind on, and have set up a crowd funding page so that you lovely people can vote with your feet. We are determined not to let this opportunity slip us by. So, all those who hate our dark, dripping underpass, unite and light up the bridge! Whether you can donate 1p or 1k it'll all add up to show we can conquer the odds and make this amazing opportunity a reality.
