LEWISHAM council have received a surprise Valentine's Day card – from Millwall fans hoping the local authority will show their club some love.
The card was delivered by fan on the board Peter Garston, whose petition against a town hall decision to sell land around The Den to a property developer has over 3,000 signatures.
The Lions want to stop the sale from going ahead so that their own plans for the area can be considered by the council.
The outside of the card reads: "Roses are Red, Millwall are Blue, Look at our plans, And let’s work with you!"
Inside, the card reads:
Dear Lewisham Council,
We urge you to stop immediately the sale to a property developer of three areas of land adjoining The Den currently leased to Millwall and the Millwall Community Scheme Trust.
We call on you to get back round the table to consider Millwall’s viable plans that have already been presented to you.
Let the Club continue to play a major role in serving the community and in the development of the Surrey Canal Triangle.
So this Valentine’s Day please show Millwall some love and let’s work together to put the fans and the community first!
Peter Garston, Millwall’s Fan on the Board, and the 3,000 Millwall supporters who have already signed the Defend Our Den petition.
