Charlton Athletic - The Valley

In 1985 Charlton left The Valley and mother nature moved in. The Charlton fans however were having none of it. They came together and fought to get their home back. They laboured and toiled, cutting back and clearing up until finally the dereliction that had sullied their home was cleansed in fire.

From the flames a political party was born. A band of brothers and sisters with one aim, through the force of grass roots participatory democracy, to pressurise the local council to listen to the wishes of the people and grant planning permission for a new redesigned and modern stadium. They did it, contesting 60 out of 62 council seats they won nearly 15000 votes and the local council was forced to bow to their will. Charlton Athletic returned to The Valley in December 1992.
