BBC Radio Four are recording a debate near Elephant & Castle on the topic ‘Whatever happened to community?’ Taking place at St. Mary’s Church, Kennington Park Road on 16 December at 3.30pm, it will feature perspectives from Baroness Warsi (Minister for Faith and Communities), Hilary Benn (Shadow Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government), Jane Wills (Professor of Human Geography at Queen Mary, University of London) and Roger Scruton (writer and philosopher) about what community is and what it means in 21st century Britain.
The debate will be hosted by Dr Giles Fraser, who is the priest-in-charge at St Mary’s, and it will explore the nature of community – are communities in crisis in modern Britain? What can government do to strengthen community bonds? Or must change come from grass roots and local organisers? If you live, work or study in the area this is a great opportunity to explore what community means in Elephant & Castle and surrounds and ask the panel a question.
