Great meeting yesterday, the volunteers are flocking to the cause. This week we should know if we have got a bit of funding for the street party from our new best friends the London Community Foundation. So we’re going to meet next Sunday, same time same place, to spend the money and allocate tasks.
The main thing to say is: Join us and your neighbours for a communal meal on Sunday 16th June at noon in Mervan Road. Bring a chair and a dish to share.
We also need people to help set up from 9am. And if you have spare camping tables, chairs, gazebos, outdoor play equipment please bring it along. We’ll also take any old arts and craft stuff you dont want for the kids area.
In the afternoon we’re hoping for music and fun.
If you want to organise anything in the street that day please do that would be great. We want Effra folk to come and do their thing, whatever that is.
A local resident has got in touch to say that Dexter’s playground, which backs onto our grid of streets from Railton Rd, is back under Lambeth control and is soon to open supervised play sessions once a week and then full time in the holidays. They are planning an open day soon. Lambeth are hoping that it will transfer to a new provider – might be an ideal candidate for a community co-operative. If anyone is interested in getting involved, there is a meeting at 6pm tomorrow, 14th May at Max Roach adventure playground. This is a great opportunity for individuals or groups who want to get more involved in youth provision locally
To find out more about what’s happening you can contact Lambeth’s youth coop on 020 926 0136, email at firstname.lastname@example.org, follow on twitter @YoungLambeth – or just come to the meeting.
Thanks to everyone who helped on the ‘Community Freshview’ day a few weeks ago on Rattray and Kellett Roads.
Within a few hours (and well before the rain arrived) we’d filled a skip with junk that had been dumped on the street or in front gardens, trimmed back some overgrown hedges and painted a few front garden walls.
