A ‘GAIA’ USED CLOTHES DROP IN BOX placed by the Teachers Group’s “Gaia Movement Trust” is to be removed from the street following the intervention of the local Member of Parliament.
Greenwich Council said it will take action to remove the box in Whitworth Road, Plumstead, after the MP, Matthew Pennycook, took up a complaint by a local resident.
The green box has been on the pavement outside a corner store for at least five years, but is not licensed by the council.
In a letter to the MP, the Royal Borough of Greenwich said last week it would remove the box and any other Gaia boxes discovered on public land in the borough, because of “the suggestion that proceeds from the sale of donations …may be making their way to this allegedly corrupt organisation.”
