Cathy Valentine is the Chair of SNT panel and meetings relate to local residents priorities for policing. At the recent Brixton Neighbourhood forum meeting a Police representative explained the diminished resources and how far police services are stretched.

People mention on local social media the rise of smaller gangs threatening young lads  for their phones.

On the estates the worrying trend of horrific knife attacks continues to rise.

Gas works close Brixton Road, start on 31 July and last approximately seven months. We will be progressing southwards down the A23 Brixton Road from Camberwell New Road towards Wynne Road in two phases.

Notification of major gas works: Brixton Road (A23), London


We are planning essential work to upgrade the gas network in Brixton Road (A23) from this summer. Our £2.4 million project involves the replacement of old metal gas mains with new plastic pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply to south-west London long into the future. Our contractor ForeFront Utilities will undertake this work on our behalf.


So that we can minimise disruption, we have carefully consulted and planned our works in partnership with TfL and Lambeth Borough Council. Our Brixton Road project will start on 31 July and last approximately seven months. We will be progressing southwards down the A23 Brixton Road from Camberwell New Road towards Wynne Road in two phases. More information can be found on our dedicated project page here:


We are also producing a bespoke project leaflet and poster that I will share with you shortly.


So that we can explain more about our work, we have organised a drop-in session in The Debenture Room at The Kia Oval, Kennington, London, SE11 5SS on Monday 3 July. You are welcome to attend at any time between 2pm and 8pm.


Members of our project team will be on hand to answer questions and talk through our plans in more detail. If you are unable to attend our drop-in session but would still like to meet us to discuss our work in more detail, please let me know.


We understand that people can get frustrated by roadworks. However, the new plastic pipe has a minimum lifespan of 80 years. This means that when the work is complete, London residents will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come.


Please share this information with anyone who you believe may be impacted by our work.


I hope I have been able to reassure you of our commitment to deliver a safe project and keep you updated. If you have any further questions, please let me know.


Kind regards

Exclusive release sale of Brixton Pound David Bowie Limited Edition print

The money sticks to Brixton. Now the art does too. One night only 50% off local sale to raise funds for Brixton projects.

First announced on David Bowie’s official website and with only 250 available, our limited edition print wasted no time in being scooped up by collectors all over the world – the first one even sold at auction for over $1,500!

However while selling online and running to the post office has its advantages, we have a soft-spot for the old fashioned way and even better when it’s bringing people together in one of our favourite spots in Bowie’s hometown.

That’s why for one night only, we’re releasing 30 limited prints for sale, exclusively in Brixton, at just £300* – a one-time only 50% discount from the standard price of £600 per print. And we figured such an event deserves a bit of a party.

It’s a chance to grab a unique piece of art (the first ever printed on money grade paper, no less) and feel good in the process – proceeds from the sale are going into our fund, which grants money to local community projects in Brixton.

Alongside a live DJ there’ll be drinks and our friends at Agile Rabbit serving up ‘Ziggizzas’.

Space is limited so we are asking that people pre-register on Eventbrite. In addition to a complementary drink, you can also make sure you’re one of the 30 to secure a print by placing a pre-order – just select the option available when registering and you’ll be asked to pay a deposit of £30. Prints come unframed but framing options and advice will be available on the night.

Pre-orders are already selling so if you want to guarantee one at this price, place a pre-order soon.

We hope to see you there to help us celebrate the man who fell to earth and the ongoing spirit of the Brixton community.

We hope you can make it!

The Brixton Pound

*We ask that you pay the balance on the night – we accept cards, cash, and of course Brixton Pounds! If you want some flexibility we’d be happy to chat about installment payments too. Either ask on the night, or email to discuss more.

**Following the Studio73 event, we will be at the Urban Art Fair on the weekend of 8/9 July where another small batch of prints will be available for £450. After that it’s back to the RRP so we recommend taking advantage of this while you can!

Can’t wait until 6 July? Order a full-price print online or pick one up at our cafe.
