Anti-bookies campaigners hold 'awareness event'

Haringey Independent: Campaigners outside the Lordship last night Campaigners outside the Lordship last night

A group campaigning against bookmakers in the borough held an "awareness event" yesterday evening. 

The Lordship Campaign Group set up a stall outside the former Lordship pub, the proposed site of a new betting shop, and gave out letters, leaflets and information about the gambling industry.

The group hopes to gather more support for its efforts to resist the latest bid by a bookmaker to open up shop in the area.

Paddy Power, a betting firm, is appealing against the council’s refusal to grant it a betting licence.

The campaign group is asking people in the Wood Green area, where the firm wants to open its new branch, to voice their concerns.
