    hahaha, I've just been blocked by their twitter account for asking who they were and how they were constituted... I don't think they really understand the internet.

    It seems they've very chumsy with the Brixton Blog but they've never sent us anything at Brixton Buzz. Mind you, that hasn't stopped them stealing at least one image from the site, just like Splash before them.

    I received 419 scam emails that are in better English, and with better proof reading standards, than the Value My Time web site

    I am so very confused by that Value my time website and Facebook.

    I can't work out the relationship between them and the Lambeth-backed Brixton Wave. Is Ros Griffiths involved?

    I'm assuming Ros has them in as their social media person? The Wave website (although to be taken with a pinch of salt, as most of it is out of date), only lists Ros as managing Wave. Value my Time is run by someone who came through the Prince's Trust programme and appears to be running their own Brixton based events business. But just no events in expensive West London. Which I guess they mean West End.

    Mysteriously, my comment on their Facebook page about last year's fiasco has disappeared.....

    Wave already alienating one Brixton buisness by using their image on their social media without bothering to credit / link to them or when mention their name.

    That's the spirit! They've already nicked one of my images without credit too.

    And here's how much they want the local community involved:

    There seems to be very little activity for Brixton Wave seeing as it's just six weeks away. There's been no relevant activity on Twitter or Facebook for months and there's still no sign of this looong overdue app.

    The SAG is getting stressed as they have had no contact from Ros.
    She ain't even begged up the Council for money (yet).
    But she is adamant it is going ahead.

    And yet there's still no updates at all on their web page/Twitter/FB - and there's just three weeks to go! And no app, obvs. :facepalm:

    No temporary traffic order applied for so no carnival thing.

    In fact just an update to 2018 dates on the website and an growing inkling from her previous facilitators this is all positioning on her part to avoid having to give back any funds she got last year.

    We know the fairly small sum she got last year from the Council.

    What we don't know until we see the Wave accounts is how much "match" funding she got elsewhere.

    I expect we will next hear from Ros when she rips into Lambeth "Posh Lee Stylee" and accuses all and sundry of being bigots and bastards.

    If you know about the workings of the SAG do you know what the incident was that caused concern in relation to the Country Show that they won't tell us about?

    It's a wildly exagerated instance of some people (could have been me even) telling gate stewards to fuck off when they demanded they throw their booze away before entering.

    I avoided stewards completely last year, and went through holes in the fence....

    VMT was running the Wave twitter account - there's the same spelling errors / grammatical style, and the peculiarly funny hatred for 'West London'.

    I see you've asked for an update - I got promptly blocked for doing the same thing a few months ago!

    And that invisible pitched battle with the cops, of course.

    ^Did they even read that before putting it up? Because I make that 3 typos + 2 grammar errors before you even get into parsing what the words actually mean. Shoddy work on every level. Proofreading is a part of valuing other people's time - your readers'.

    Just nine days to go but ne'er a peep on social media or their website.

    And as for that definitely-coming-100%-guaranteed app - not a peep.
