    Fuck knows why David Bowie keeps appearing in headlines for this school. You'd think he owned the school!

    Even though i would rarely go into Gigalum, they did have some decent big name DJ's playing on a Sunday (for free) which would be worth popping your head round for.

    Even without reading the marketing blurb, im sure this new inception will be a downgrade, and ill likely never step foot in the place.

    Wasn't Gigalum owned by the SW4 people? They must have had an offer they couldnt refuse from this 'Livelyhood Pub Group'.

    Does this mean a whole swathe of Antipodean ravers will be getting nostalgic for their Sunday sessions?

    And the shit has only hit the fan now because a small group of parents worked tirelessly and persistently for a year to expose the situation despite being fobbed off by Lambeth Council and (some of) the Governors at almost every stage. Note the school now also has a new Chair of Governors. Hopefully it's been a case of short-term pain for long-term gain. It's a great school, my child is doing really well there and enjoys it very much. There are some excellent teachers and teaching assistants in particular. Parents are very active and are now welcomed by the school since Ms Umekwe's departure. Onwards and upwards for this great Brixton school. And thanks to these parents for their hard work in making it possible.

    Plans are afoot to paint a community mural on the wall that runs along the path from Bolton Crescent to the Brandon Estate.on the Kennington Park Extension formerly Brandon Fields.....Hopefully this will not mean that the impressive work below is obliterated.....but I wouldn't bank on it.

    I'm wondering what is going on in Herne Hill Ward, and also adjoining Southwark wards, which frequently as prone to knife crime.

    I witnessed a really horrible accident this morning whilst cycling to work on Kennington Park Road. A cyclist in front of me went under a bus and it really didn't look good. I can't seem to find any information on it. I didn't wait to give my account of it to the police as I had a bit of a meltdown, but of course I will. There were lots of witnesses there. Has anyone heard anything about it? Its an image that will haunt me for a very long time and I'm in shock still I think. As someone that cycles to work every day its a pretty distressing thing to see. poor bloody guy. I really hope he made it.

    Thanks for the update. I don't remember seeing a lorry, but like Tom Seymour says it is a really horrible stretch of road where its everyone against everyone and it really needs to be segregated :(

    That work survived a few years tag free in stark contrast to the rest of the wall, time will tell if the official mural will do as well.....

    did anyone see a privately flown plane at around 14:45 circling between Kennington/Brixton and Camberwell?? Looked like it was doing dangerous/skilled manoeuvres :O
