We regret to announce that we have decided to close I Live in SE16 with immediate effect. This decision has not been taken lightly but after months of making efforts to find additional volunteers, we have concluded that the work is beyond the few currently involved. We will not now be publishing any further issues of our local magazine, publishing any further articles on our website or maintaining the Facebook page. Our Twitter account @SE16Hour will continue to operate.

Over the last two years we have tried to provide a source of reliable information about our community, to connect people with different experience and to encourage people to take action on the things that matter to the common good. We have published six issues of I Live in SE16 magazine, over 650 posts on iliveinse16.com, gathered more than 3,600 followers on Twitter and 1900 Likes on Facebook. We have held a Big Lunch, many MeetUps and an Arts Festival. Many people have told us how much they have appreciated the contribution we have made to local life.

We are truly grateful to our community and business partners who have enabled and sustained our work. In particular, we wish to place on record our gratitude for the support of James Gill of bodytonic clinic. Over the next three months, we aim to tie up loose ends and to close down the company. We know that others will find ways of fulfilling aspects of our mission in future and wish them the very best. The lessons from the last two years will not be lost, only recycled into new activities.

The I Live in SE16 Team
