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: https://www.sgn.co.uk/Roadworks/Southern-projects/Lambeth-A23-Brixton-Road/

 

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

Brixton Pound recent news Fund distribution, be involved at Pop Brixton event Weds.28th. 6.45-9pm and Launch of Bowie Print Thursday, July 6, 2017 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM attached Brixton Pound cafe details

Local groups will be showcasing project proposals on 28th June at Pop Brixton 6.45pm-8pmauditorium (check put website for event details and booking tickets.)
You are invited to the following events:

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 info@brixtonpound.org 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. 

And here’s the technical blurb

Offset lithograph printed in colour with fluorescent ink and die-cut mirror with gold and silver foil on watermarked banknote paper

Image area: 247 x 235 mm

Paper size: A3 (420 x 297 mm)

Edition of 300

Titled, numbered, and blindstamped by This Ain’t Rock’n’Roll; accompanied by certificate of authenticity

The edition of 300 – of which 250 are offered for sale – went into production in December 2015, with David Bowie’s approval.

The print has been produced by the note’s designers, This Ain’t Rock’n’Roll, together with Orion Security Print, the company responsible for printing the Brixton Pound notes.

The print is produced on the same diamond-patterned security paper as the circulation notes, and features several of their original features such as orange fluorescent ink and die-cut metallic & holographic foiling.

Both sides of the note are displayed, featuring Duffy’s iconic photograph of David Bowie in his Ziggy Stardust guise from the cover of Aladdin Sane, as well as a detail from the Nuclear Dawn mural on Brixton’s Coldharbour Lane.

Each print is titled ( –2016) in pencil, individually numbered in both black and metallic ink, and blind-stamped by the designers. The print will also be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from the Brixton Pound.unnamed

Dear Member,

Following the attack on London Bridge and Borough Market on Saturday there is a full update from the Metropolitan Police here.

What will be different in South Bank?

It is very much business as usual but there will be more police, more armed police and members of the armed forces in public places.  This means that armed police officers responsible for duties such as guarding key sites will be replaced by members of the armed forces, which will allow the police to significantly increase the number of armed officers on patrol in key locations.

Please be vigilant: members of the public should always remaim alert and report any suspicious activity to the police on 999 or the anti-terrorist hotline: 0800 789 321.

As usual our South Bank Patrol will be in the area supporting the police both in South Bank and across public buildings.

Regards,

South Bank BID Team
