A survey has revealed that a third of shops on Lewisham High Street leave their doors open all day.So what, you might say? It's their money to waste?
The survey carried out by Lewisham Green Party covered 75 shops in the main shopping area.
Well, yes. But as always, 'something must be done about this!':
Lewisham's Green councillor, Darren Johnson, has slammed the waste of energy and called on the council to work with local retailers to tackle the problem.And this is the job of the council? The one that's whining about how strapped it is for cash? Just what does he expect them to do?
Cllr Johnson has tabled a formal question to the next Council meeting, calling on the council to work with local retailers and to join the "Close the Door" campaign.Ah. I see. It's just designed to raise the profile of the Green Party then?
The campaign works with local authorities and retailers nationally to encourage them to close the door and save energy.
Because surely there's no-one in business in this country who is unaware that their heating is escaping through an open door?
