How Can I Get Involved?

We’ve been overwhelmed by the volume of messages we’ve received from passionate Lutonians asking what you can do to help the #saveourtown campaign.

The most important thing you can do is tell everyone about the #saveourtown campaign. Word of mouth is so important – and it won’t cost you anything or take up much of your time.

So, tell your friends, family, neighbours, co-workers, loose associates, people in the street. Anyone you see.

Together we are stronger. Together we can #saveourtown.

But seeing as you’re here and you’ve discovered our website below are some of the other ways you can show your support:

You can help spread our messages, by finding out more about the work that we are doing on our latest news page… then telling everyone you can.

You can follow us on social media – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube – and help amplify a positive message about Luton by sharing our posts and videos.

You can sign up to our newsletter to receive all the latest #saveourtown news and information straight to your inbox.

You can find out about all the people and businesses that support our campaign and add your support

Download our poster and put it up in your window!

Show your support for the #saveourtown campaign by printing a copy of our leaflet and poster and placing it proudly in your window.

Don’t forget to take a photo and send it to us – either by email at saveourtownluton@hotmail.com or via our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages!

Spread The Word!

Use our website to learn more about the current situation around the Newlands Park and Power Court applications and learn all about our campaign.

Visit the Capital & Regional Claims page to read more about the inaccurate statements #saveourtown believe that Capital & Regional have made – and our responses to them.

Spread the word to friends, family, colleagues and fellow Lutonians, and ask them to follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages!

Send Us Your Selfies!

We know that 11,000+ contacted the council directly by email and letter to support the proposals for Newlands Park and Power Court when the plans were originally submitted.

Now we want to show the 11,000 names, faces and stories of Lutonians who want to make it happen.

  • Grab a piece of paper
  • Write #saveourtown on it
  • Take a selfie with your paper
  • Write a short quote which explains why you believe the proposals are so important for our town
  • Send your photo and quote to us via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram
  • Share it with your friends

Become an Ambassador

We’re hoping to develop a list of ‘Community Ambassadors’ that we can call on to assist #saveourtown with future projects and help represent us at events.

If you’re able to spare some time, please email your contact details to saveourtownluton@hotmail.com or fill in the form on the contact us page.

We’ll be in touch!

Would you like to help with the campaign?

We have set up a JustGiving crowdfunding page to help generate funds for our campaign. If you are able, we'd be eternally grateful for your donation, no matter how big or small.

Here's what you've told us

While we believe Luton will be transformed by Power Court and Newlands Park, don’t just take our word for it.

People are having their say as part of our Change.org petition urging Capital & Regional, owners of The Mall shopping centre, to stop blocking a bright new future for Luton. Sign the petition here: https://www.change.org/p/capital-regional-stop-blocking-a-bright-new-future-for-luton

This is a chance to add to the original UK planning record of 11,000 people who wrote to Luton Borough Council in 2016, supporting the plans for Power Court and Newlands Park. The key difference now is the opportunity to tell the major objector why they need to change their stance and listen to what the people of the town want and need.

Also, all your responses (be polite) will be sent direct to the email inboxes of the Capital and Regional Chief Executive and Chairman.

Both developments are a once in a lifetime opportunity for Luton and c&r do not own the town.

If the exhibition at Stockwood Discovery Centre has whet your vintage Vauxhall appetite, you may want to tune in to BBC3CR tomorrow morning (8 September) at 08.15 to hear Simon Hucknall, Head of Product PR and Heritage at Vauxhall, explain the reasons why the Heritage Centre have put a small number of cars up for auction. There is a very good reason for this, which Simon will explain.

Show your support by downloading our #saveourtown leaflet and poster and putting it up in your window. Don't forget to send us a photo!

Why are we raising money?

#saveourtown is a volunteer-led campaign group and, while we have a popular and ever-growing social media presence, we are aiming to reach all members of our community and not everyone is on social media, or online. To produce physical campaign materials and spread the message through community events, this costs money.

So, your generous donations, no matter how big or small, have and will be used to fund the creation and maintenance of promotion activity, purchase materials and prepare advertising campaigns to help spread the word about #saveourtown, and the proposals we support.

For example, your donations have helped pay for this website and for things like banners, that have been paraded on the pitch at Kenilworth Road, plus 80,000 posters and leaflets that were sent to Luton homes, so residents could learn about the once-in-a-lifetime chance to transform their town.

This also provided people with a chance to show their support by putting the posters in their windows to further spread the word. Didn’t get one? Don’t worry you can download the poster here for FREE.

Your donations have made that possible and so much more. Every penny raised will be accounted for and our accounts will be professionally verified annually. And when we all get the victory of progress for Luton, as a community campaign, any funds left when our work is complete will be donated to a Luton charity.
