Lost: a wallpapering table, white cake plate, black Denby dish. Found: a pair of orange trainers

Message from Vanda at 49 Rattray….

Lost – At the end of the street party on Sunday, did anyone collect my wallpapering table which was being used for the children’s crafts activities? Apparently it was stacked at the junction but when I came to get it at 9.45pm it was not there. It has “Vanda & Julia, 49 Rattray” written on it.

Found – My son found a pair of children’s orange Nike trainers (Size 1) on the street on the Monday morning after the street party. Do get in touch if they belong to your child.

Also lost by Justin on Talma Road:  big white cake plate and deep round black Denby dish.

The trainers don’t necessarily look like the picture, we just put that on there for fun

Sainsbury’s to fund new traffic lights at new Carpetright site store

Residents will remember that Sainsbury’s have bought the Carpetright site on Tulse Hill and plan to open a new store there. Thanks to a brilliant campaign by local residents, the management have agreed to upgrade the traffic lights near the site. Here’s the link to the minutes of the last meeting with residents: Sainsbury’s.21may13

 

Here’s how we originally reported the story. carpetright

At last… Dexters is open on Thursdays!

dexterThe wait is over…..thanks to local volunteers there will now be supervised play sessions at Dexters on Railton Road every Thursday from 3-7…finally!  It’s open to all 5-16yr olds but the awesome play structure is only suitable for 8+.
There will be other play activities available and soon there will be another structure for younger ones. In the Summer holidays it will be open Mon-Fr 10-6, all supervised so once children have been registered they can be left alone with staff there. Spread the word…effrablog wonders if there is an upper age limit for that big slide? Looks awesome.

Dear Mervan Road – time to move your cars – the street party is tomorrow, Sunday

imagesDear esteemed neighbours who live on Mervan Road:

Its that time of year again. You are extremely lucky to be the Chosen Place for the Street Party on Sunday. What could be better than having a wonderful coming together of the local community right outside your house? But – and here’s the crunch. But you need to move your car today because (a) Lambeth has authorised the road closure tomorrow morning so you will be trapped (b) you don’t really want a gazebo on top of it. You have been warned…see you tomorrow

 

Thanks to Lambeth Community Fund and London Community Foundation for their support for this event.
