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

A primary school federation’s chief has quit for “personal reasons” after it was investigated when one of its school’s Sats results were annulled.
Lilian Umekwe has quit as executive head of a federation of two schools including Stockwell Primary School in Stockwell Road, Brixton, where rock legend David Bowie went to his first lessons – yards from his parents’ Stansfield Road home where he was born in 1947.

So the Gigalum DJ bar has become the horrendously named 'Perky Nel' .

A perky blinder of a pub is opening in Clapham South this February as Livelyhood Pub Group transforms late-night DJ bar Gigalum into the area’s newest neighbourhood pub, The Perky Nel.

Perky by name and nature, the new lively and cheerful venue will round up all the best bits a neighbourhood pub can offer. Embracing traditional values with a modern attitude, enjoy a large bar and dining space serving satisfying British food and drink from local suppliers and producers. A dedicated sports area featuring giant screens will be showing all the latest games and the large outdoor terrace will provide fantastic views out over the Common.

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'.

Nothing up to date but my daughter left the school 5 years ago and the SMT were pretty dodgy - infiltrated by jehovahs most of them were witnesses and many related to each other. I’m amazed it’s taken this long for the shit to hit the fan.
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 hope this twat goes down for a very, very, very long time.



A man from Kennington is one of six people now convicted of gun offences after police seized a huge haul of firearms and more than 3,000 rounds of ammunition.

Mishak Wright-Martin, aged 33, from Kennington Park Road, was found guilty of conspiracy to sell or transfer ammunition last December and will be sentenced on April 3 at Croydon Crown Court along with five others.

The court heard how the criminal group started to operate after German national Manfred Kurz, who moved to the UK in 2004 and had previously served with the German army, smuggled ammunition into the country which he and his niece, Sian Alexandra Miller, began to illegally sell.

In February 2018 Millers’ home in Stanger Road in South Norwood was searched by trident officers who found 1,800 rounds of ammunition and two pistols and CS spray.

Afterwards, officers raided her uncle’s address in Ashburton Road, Croydon, where they found ‘a large quantity of black explosive power’, a live .357 calibre cartridge and bullet-making equipment. He was arrested the same day...

Detective Constable Martin Reader, of the trident and area crime command, said: “The recovery of this haul of ammunition and black powder represents one of the Met’s largest-ever seizures of ammunition and explosive substances in recent times.

“A huge amount of ammunition has been recovered, which we believe was destined to be sold to criminals with gang connections.

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

ready steady baby!
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.

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
