Hard on the heels of the last one, here’s the latest ‘Safer Lambeth’ presentation:
Claude the cat has been missing from Leander Road since early March. His owners have got in touch to ask if Effrablog people can look out for him. He is a small black cat with a bushy tail and pale green eyes.
ONLY TWO MONTHS TO GO TILL THE EFFRA STREET PARTY ON SUNDAY 16TH JUNE.
So things are now getting serious. <mops brow>
Come and share the excitement. And have your say on important issues like what is the best time to start the hog roast, and the optimal distance between the bar and the bouncy castle.
Thursday 18th April. Wendy’s house. 23 Rattray Road. 8pm.
See you there
‘Community Freshview’ is a Lambeth scheme, led by residents to make a difference to our streets; this can include painting walls, trimming overgrown greenery, and removing dumped rubbish.
Lambeth provides all the tools free – such as overalls, hedge-cutters, paint, brushes & a skip.
If you are interested in joining your neighbours in improving the way our streets look, come along at or after 10am – you can join in for just an hour or so, or the whole day.
We’ll be meeting at 10am at the ‘Community Freshview’ van which will park somewhere on Rattray or Kellet roads, or join during the day in the street.
We are really pleased about this. They play 1920s jazz stuff. Here’s the link.
And if you want a sneak preview, go down to the shiny new Effra Social on 4th May because they’ll be playing there too.
Mervan Road will be closed all day on Sunday 16th June for the global excitement that is the annual Effra Street Party. You heard it here first. Put it in your diary. That’s a mere two and a half months to go…
Everyone living in the surrounding streets is invited to come down for 1pm to share food and drink with neighbours. Bring a chair and a dish to share. We hope we’ll all be able to sit down together.
After that, there’ll be music and dancing, stuff to keep the kids amused (including, probably the fire engine and possibly chess lessons….), and refreshment available courtesy of our very own Effra Hall. And yes, Fit and the Conniptions will be back to strut their stuff by popular demand.
If you like performing, cooking, singing, dancing, or have an activity you’d like to share, this is your moment. You can email your ideas to effrablog[at]gmail.com or just comment on this story. Or come to the next planning meeting – Thursday 18th April at 8pm at Wendy’s house on 23 Rattray Road
The children are doing the publicity. Watch out for their posters.
