Decathlon Charlton: We're proud of Charlton, so please rename your "Greenwich" store

We're proud of living in Charlton. It's got a brilliant sporting heritage. And we like Decathlon. It sells good sports gear at low prices.

So we should be delighted that we're getting a branch of Decathlon in Charlton. But we're sad to see it's being called "Decathlon Greenwich".

We're sad Decathlon is unwilling to associate itself with Charlton.

We are home to Charlton Athletic Football Club whose community schemes are admired worldwide. We play host to the London Marathon each April. Our Charlton Lido is one of the best in London. We have one of south-east London's most exciting skate parks. We have hubs for cricket and BMX riding. We lend our name to Charlton Park rugby club. And the Thames Path is one of London's finest routes for running and cycling.

Greenwich is lovely, but it isn't associated with sport. And by turning its back on Charlton, Decathlon is turning its back on a community that's inextricably linked with sport, and missing out on so much.

So please, Decathlon, be better than those other retail barns. Be Charlton, and be proud.
