About The St. John’s Society

Formed in 1997, pressing for improvements to the wellbeing of the residents, the amenity of the area and the built environment of its conservation areas: The Brookmill Road Conservation Area and the  St. John’s Conservation Area.

 What we do

The St. John’s Society – a residents’ association covering the area of Lewisham that used to be called Deptford New Town – was founded in 1997, originally to fight a proposal from the Borough to concrete-over the duck pond in Brookmill Park. It is supported by a small committee, representing virtually many streets radiating out from St. John’s station, and of people from a diversity of occupations – with all manner of outside interests. We all have in common a commitment to improving our environment, and believe that our corner of south-east London is a very fine place to live. Things we do include liaising with Lewisham Borough Council, our elected council representatives and Member of Parliament; promoting enhancements to our built environment (tell us if you have concerns about trees; pavements or the quality of road surfaces); organizing events from an annual ‘picnic in the park’ to a carol service in St. John’s church, and promoting the St. John’s area as a distinct community.
