    Does anyone know of a local charity (thinking an animal charity probably) that could use a load of towels, sheets, duvets?

    Set up by ex 60s fashion model. Helped out our Coop when large cat family moved in.

    My old Coop donated them some money when we wound up the Coop.

    They were very helpful. Not as well known as Battersea cats and dogs home.

    I've been invited to a "scoping session for a Creative Community Placemakers Network."

    I literally have no fucking idea what that means.

    So what is a 'placemaker'? Someone who gets the dinner table ready?

    Funnily enough, all the information needed, including a definition of what 'placemaker' is, is on the event website. Fancy that!

    Sounds a bit Brixton Greeny though doesn't it?

    As a cynic (in the Antisthenes sense) "one" wonders whether the scoping might come up with something requiring the architectural expertise of Jacqueline Bleicher on either a consultancy or permanent basis.

    What is it with 27 Old Gloucester Street London, WC1N 3AX then?

    This is an accommodation address, and the company known as Global Urban Design was formed a year ago, has never filed accounts and only one person listed as a director ie Jacqueline Bleicher.

    Clearly a start-up, but one destined to take over the globe apparently.

    Wouldn't want to comment on whether it is a good or bad thing. But it's a fairly detailed explanation, if a bit wanky.

    Not dissimilar to Spacemakers, who we know filled the empty Brixton Village units. They also helped found West Norwood Feast, which has completely changed the dynamic in West Norwood in many positive ways. They were/are a consultancy too. Good things can and do come out of this kind of thing.

    WC1N 3AX is a PO Box btw.

    I find all this stuff weird and I resent the way that they use on-trend language that is almost guaranteed to exclude a large demographic who aren't tuned into their daft buzzword-speak. They sound a bit like those Spacemakers lot who got their paws all over Brixton Village. Brixton Village – London
