On Friday 18th July 2008 Harriet Harman MP met with Russell Profitt and staff from the Peckham Programme to discuss various issues. Cllr Barrie Hargrove and Cllr Althea Smith also attended.
Harriet has been working with Russell to campaign for the much needed regeneration of Peckham Rye Station and for the Cross River Tram to come to Peckham.
The issue of gun and knife crime was also discussed with Jonathan Toy from Southwark Partnership Desk. Harriet is campaigning locally with Councillors and organisations for people to "Put Down your Knives".
