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.
Local 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.
There is going to be a ‘Community Freshview’ day on Talma Road on Saturday 17th of August, between 10am to 3pm.
‘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 council 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; and you don’t have to live in Talma Road to join in.
We’ll be meeting at 10am at the ‘Community Freshview’ van which will park somewhere on Talma Road, or join us during the day in the street.
