    Surprisingly they asked if I wanted someone to come and see me tomorrow. I can't, and said they needn't unless they wanted the actual bit of paper, but it sounded like they were taking it seriously.

    There's nothing I like the sound of in that press release. It's all foodie wank for twats who are impressed with 'mischievous twists'.

    Your local charity Code 7, 21 one years standing and one off the few black charities left in Lambeth is currently doing great work with young people and communities.

    They're having a open day ( Weds 15 the November) for locals to come along and hear about a range of new exciting projects they intend to launch. Led by the ever green @AsherSenator Code 7 has adopted a proactive Public Health approach to tackling increasing level of youth violence. Supported by the social movement Blaksox Code 7 is piloting a new community led approach to community development, that is predicated on community self reliance. Why not come along and see what's on offer and find out how you many be able to assist a community seeking to help itself.

    Kennington Park is suffering a plague of rats.....big 'uns
    The centre of infestation seems to be the skatepark
    Management are blaming the northern line extension
    .....disrupting underground colonies....
    They're not shy.......and love the park buffet

    Related to the above post I have heard talk of cracks in walls and of doors not closing properly in the area
    and now it is confirmed....the northern line extension built to serve the US embassy and associated works at nine elms is being blamed for this.......
    'Northern Line extension causes Kennington to sink'
    .....they are underplaying it atm but I would not be surprised if this proves critical for some older buildings

    Incidentally, what happened at the end about those plans revealed last year to hold up to 100 private events per year in the Common that caused much outrage amongst some people? Did the plans not materialise? Or has it started to happen but the overwhelming majoirty of said events are too small for most park users to even be aware of their existence, let alone cause widespread disruption?

    There are loads of events but a lot are things like runs, where they just stick up some tents somewhere and mark a route out.

    Hardly impact anyone.

    That's what I suspected it'd be the case all along...

    Exactly, WTF!

    Good luck with that. Are there really that many people around to support such a thing?

    Guessing if you like 'Friends', don't go out much and feel like you might want to hangout out with other people who share the same obsession then this is gonna allow into to Ross's room and a quick selfie.

    I really don't understand this. What happens? And why would people pay for it?

    My gf is a big Friends fan and I briefly considered getting tickets for this as they were announcing it in the Comedy Channel whenever they show episodes of Friends, and she showed interest in it. Not my thing at all but each to their own.

    As far as I understand it they build up an ultra realistic replica of the two apartments and throw in some real props from the production as a bonus. I think they might even offer ‘experiences’ recreating some of the most popular scenes from the show.

    Apparently this is the second such tour in the UK so it must be successful enough. I’m just surprised they’re staging it in a park. You’d have imagined it being held at the smallest hall available at Olympia, or some disused warehouses in East London. But then the footprint will likely be fairly small so it might pay off having it at a more central location as the hire fee wouldn’t be that much.

    That's all I remember from the adverts. Perhaps there are also lookalikes reenacting scenes :D
