Play street September 28th 2-6pm 2014

Rich Driffield erstwhile  local resident is also the Play street  coordinator reviewing the scheme in Lambeth. He wants to visit to see how its progressing in our streets :Rich@londonplay.org.uk

He emailed: Where are We at?

I am keen to find out where you are at right now? And see if you have any plans for future street parties . As part of the Big Lottery project we have funds available for residents to make their play street sessions a little bit special – so get in touch and we can talk! Lambeth falls in Year two of the project and we can look to offer you something in 2015.
Our next one is on September 28th Sunday 2-6pm.  After all our summer fun we hope more can children enjoy the car free afternoon. Games include: Bring your  Bike and hula hoops  and possibly table tennis.  Any children interested can help photograph/ film the event for our archive.

As this year there were London Play Awards for  children’s take on the Play Streets. What can we come up with next year More Art like Lamonte’s charicature drawing portraits. Big draw event or other ideas?

Any new volunteers get, in touch via. effrablog@gmail.comIMG-20140629-WA0000

Other interesting local news for those with Back Pain http://yogaforbackpain.com/

Having had a period off work last year, I know how debilitating it is and how recovery needs  multiple support mechanisms.

The basic help I received from  JOYYOGA (having been a student at her studio in Mervan Road for a few years prior to my injury) was to  exercise gently and keep mobile. I recommend Yoga for back Pain the multimedia toolkit for anyone in pain, she has just launched worldwide.

“Shine a Light”

Wendy Dimler, a local community minded person and childminder is running the ‘Shine Night Walk ‘   Rosie,her daughter, and Wendy hope to raise  money towards cancer research via Cancer Research uK uk http://shine.cancerresearchuk.org

On Saturday the 27th of September Wendy will be walking a marathon to raise money for cancer research.

“I am taking part with my daughter Rosie in memory of my mum who lost her battle to cancer just before Rosie was born.

Rosie is walking to help raise money to cure this dreadful disease so other children get the chance to meet their nan.

We will walk through London starting at 9.00 pm at Surrey Quays and finish at Billingsgate market at some stage on Sunday morning hopefully minus blisters.

Please support us so other families don’t have to go through this.”
