Dexter Road Playground users are waiting, we as a community need to do more than just watch.

Latest developments ‘Heartspace’ is trying to secure funding to develop the Dexter Road playground site, to enable play activities to occur for local families.

The organisation  will have to be able to be self funding in future to develop activities in order to remain open.

There is a lot of community feeling and Local Councillors are  hoping ‘Heartspace’ works. We will meet up with Lucy Cava, at Brixton pound Cafe this Tuesday Oct 5.30pm to explore ways the wider community can make that happen. ps the Railton Road TRA (Tenants Residential Association) are meeting  later that evening.

dexterLocal residents tried last year, attended meetings, selected a provider, but need support from the wider community as both; Grove Playground  and Max Roach playground have managed (with support from YLC.)  Make sure any children  you know are signed up to Young Lambeth Coop as  its AGM is coming up.

Night-time drug activity starting again?

nw-logoWe’ve had reports of night-time drug taking and prostitution in some front gardens of Mervan Road again.

A few years ago, this quickly escalated and required a lot of policing to get rid of, so we need to act quickly.

Have you had any such problems?

If so, let us know, and contact our local Coldharbour “Safer Neighbourhoods” police team:

Missing your ceiling rose?

Ceiling roseSome local residents are getting a mold of what we believe is an original Mervan Road ceiling rose (picture attached).

If anyone is interested in getting a copy, please e-mail effrablog@gmail.com.
The cost should be between £60 and £90 (the more copies, the cheaper they will be).
Hopefully we can then also club together to get a good price on the fitting.
