[Pic: urban picnic, July 2012] Instead of having the usual monthly Brixton news threads, I thought I'd see how it works with just four every year. Although we've often spun interesting topics out of the monthly thread into their own threads, as Mr Retro pointed out, sometimes discussions can be disrupted if they start up at the end of the month. So I'm going to try for a seasonal approach and see how that pans out. I think I'm on safe ground opening the summer one today, but Autumn may prove troublesome: Question of the day: exactly when does Autumn start in the UK? Note: The June 2018 Brixton thread has now been closed.
