What is LJAG?
The Loughborough Junction Action Group (LJAG) was formed in 2008 following the suspected homophobic murder of a young man, Andrew Pratt, in Southwell Road. Local residents in the road and surrounding streets came together in sorrow to do something positive for their neighbourhood which they felt had been neglected for too long.
We are a group of local volunteers who aim to improve the quality of life in Loughborough Junction for all who live and work in the area.
Our members hold street parties, festivals, art projects, street tree planting, community clean up days, campaigns and petitions.
Our aims are to:
- engage in positive action rather than complaints
- put Loughborough Junction on the map as a place in its own right from Brixton, Herne Hill and Camberwell
- encourage a sense of community and celebrate Loughborough Junction
- run events that bring the community together.
