Less than 24 hours after Electric Avenue’s new neon sign was officially turned on by music legend Eddy Grant, the thing has already gone on the blink.
Locals returning to view the sign the next day saw that the letter V has already broken, leaving the sign’s message as “ELECTRIC A ENUE.”
It looks lovely Heritage Lottery Money eventually got to Electric Avenue. At the pre meeting with Cllrs , GLA rep and market traders issues were raised regarding Network Rail, Public Toilets,Public transport links on the Atlantic Road side and future difficulties for residents when :
building and refurbishment takes place. Not all happy smiling faces present STILL IT WAS GREAT TO ROCK ON.
Well done to local parents who challenged Lambeth to enable their children to benefit from Play facilities over this half-term
Please contact Betiel for any details to enable their children to benefit from Play facilities over this half-term
Including Betiel Mahari , Jane Duncan Ribeiro of Brixton Community Base and others
Contact for details of the campaign save Dexter and Max Roach and other Lambeth Adventure plays: firstname.lastname@example.org
Message from Cllr. Jane Pickard
I am passing on a message about half term arrangements from Paul Davies, the Lambeth officer responsible for youth and play. As we promised, YLC will be running activities in the playground. There will also be two days available at the Brixton Community Base in Talma Road. They want to meet parents tomorrow from 4.30 to 5.30 to talk about planning activities (see below).I am asking for a notice to be pinned to the playground gate as not everyone has email or is on this list. As there were around 400 names and addresses collected from the site in September and as Lambeth is short-staffed currently, it has not been possible to input all this data into a computer yet. But this will be done for future communications.
Labour Cllr for Knight’s Hill
Cabinet Member for Families and Young People
