Great prices. Makes you realise that all these pubs crying about have they have to charge £4.80 for the cheapest lager or else theyll go under are basically lying.
Sounds like great prices, although as i understand it a lot of places have the prices set by the brewery that they have deals with or who own the freehold.

Got this from Council. Consultation meeting about youth violence and how to deal with it:


Happy New Year!

We are looking for community members like you to join a Lambeth-wide community conversation on reducing youth violence. We want to see people come together to talk about youth violence, how it has affected them and their communities, and to talk about what change and solutions are needed.

A community conversation event will be held on the 23 January 2020, 6 to 9pm at Lambeth Town Hall.

Register here to be at the forefront of Lambeth’s community-led approach to tackling youth violence and create a positive future for the next generation.

Best wishes,

Cllr Mohammed Seedat

Cabinet Member for Jobs, Skills and Community Safety

That's really short notice! I've just buzzed it - Lambeth invites people to join a ‘community conversation on reducing youth violence,’ Thurs 23rd Jan 2020

must have been done but did a double take at the hairdresser in the arches diagonally opposite dogstar. 'anti' written on hoardings and seems to be called prema. looks like something off the kings road.

I went to the art shop upstairs from Kingsheild the Chemist yesterday and the shelves are almost empty. I asked "Are you running the stock down?? Are you closing??" and the bloke behind the counter said "I don't know what they're doing".

I really hope they don't close! I don't go in there often but I buy from there consistently.

Who else shops at the art shop?

I do! I chatted to the bloke about two weeks ago and they said that they were doing OK - I only asked because I noticed the lack of stock too. It would be a real shame to see them go. let me retweet my article on then now in the hope it might help keep them going

I wholeheartedley agree with your viewpoint

We get stuff in there now and again for the Winotettes. Noticed a distinct lack of stock last time I was in there and had the same thought as you. But that was at least 6 months ago so I guess I was too pessimistic.

There's a very effusive double page spread in the Property Pron section of the Standard today.
A Little Brixton House with a big personality

The location is not stated. At first I guessed possibly Effrta Parade, but it seems like the place is most likely in Merreden Street SW2 - near Archbishop's Place just past Elm Park Methodist Church, going up Brixton Hill.

The illustration is a bit bizarre, in that they ripped out the original staicase and replaced it with a bolt-together bronze staircase with no bannister rail.

Still with Brexit etc no doubt 'elf and safety couldn't give a toss anymore.

I imagine it's a bit easier to create a stylish house in a small space when you've got shitloads of money for custom builds, designer products, 'recycled leather floor tiles' (say, what?) and antique pendants etc. Mind you, this is horrible

What it cost
  • Original house in 2015:£489,000
  • Cost of extensions and full refurbishment: £90,000
  • Value of house now (estimate): £825,000
Yeah, whatever.

What excited my initial interest was the claim this house is only nine foot eight wide.
I remember a similar hoo hah about a very narrow house in Camberwell - next to Camberwell Passage I think.

ES Property pron said:
What unites all the rooms is the characterful art and craft pieces studding every wall. “We like finding work by emerging artists and craftspeople,” says O’Donnell.

A favourite hunting ground is the Urban Art Fair held every summer in Brixton. Above the fireplace hangs a whimsical print by Icelandic-born artist Kristjana Williams depicting a map of east London overlaid with exotic animals and hot air balloons.
Who will tell them?

He’s rocked into Nu Brixton paying £50k pa rent + vat , rates , bid etc so he’s hung his existing neighbours out to dry when they get their next rent review !!
That’s a lot of hair to cut when your rent expenses are around £1500 per week

yep, those arches are bloody expensive.
I made enquiries but just couldn't afford it.

On their website it says they also have branches in Sydney , New York and London ( Brixton I guess ? ) I think he’s seriously over estimated the Clientele in Atlantic Road plus by agreeing that rent any of his neighbours paying the Brixton rents set a few years ago will be fuc**d on rent reviews in Nu Brixton !!
