    Tea Party in Crystal Palace - All welcome:

    I'm involved with organising an event to celebrate 90 years of equal voting rights.

    It's taking place in Crystal Palace this coming Saturday 30th June, 2.30-4.30pm at St John the Evangelist, Sylvan Rd, Upper Norwood, SE19 2RX, and while it's organised through the Croydon North Labour Party, it's open to all.

    Entry is £8, £4 concessions, kids under 12 free and it's £4 for kids of 12 and up to 18 - this gets you homemade cakes and sandwiches (vegan options will be available), plus tea, coffee, juices.

    There's also going to be live music from Allie K. Stewart (Songstress, by Allie K Stewart) and Alison O'Melia, who plays a mean accordion, and will perform songs from the period, a 15 minute theatre performance from Vanessa Hammick from the Croydon Cycle Theatre - she has a much longer show on democracy & cycling, that will be performed at the Edinburgh Festival, and is going to perform an extract of it: The Golden Path (Vanessa Hammick for Croydon Cycle Theatre)

    We also will have stalls and speakers and a kids' play area and kids' activities, plus face-painting.

    We've hired the small church hall, but it comes with lots of outdoor space - and the weather forecast for Saturday is great :), so this should be a really lovely afternoon out. :):):)

    Tickets can be bought at the door, or here:

    I found out earlier today that two Crystal Palace primary schools are having their summer fete on Saturday, 30th of June too, with a finish time of 3pm.

    So our event closing at 4:30 pm would make it really tight if any of those families were thinking of coming along, which would of course be lovely.

    We'll keep the hall open longer if people are up for it and are turning up a bit later. :)

    There are loads of local schools having their summer fair/fete tomorrow! Certainly more than 2. :)

    The two nearest schools - Cypress and Rockmount - are 2 of those, and perhaps that’s the ones you meant....

    Did any Urbanites go to the EqualiTeas tea party in Crystal Palace? Did you enjoy the afternoon? Was there something you didn't like? Would you mind sending me a PM with feedback? We'd like to organise more community events, and we'd like to learn from this one. Lesson Number 1 is clearly to check whether other stuff happens on the day. :facepalm:

    Not me guv.

    OTOH we had lunch at the new pub in CP called The Faber Fox. Pretty swanky and with prices to suit. Have to say it was really well done up with a cracking split level terrace with glimpses of the London skyline. Food was nice too, if not exactly terrific value for money. Will have to go back in the evening sometime this summer.

    This is the late Ayodeji Habeeb Azeez, aged 22, from Dagenham, who was stabbed to death in Samos Road, Anerley on Sunday 4 November 2018.


    Police and paramedics were called to at around 12.30pm. Mr Azeez was pronounced dead at the scene at around 1pm.

    Detectives launched a murder investigation and appealed for witnesses.

    Detective Chief Inspector Mark Cranwell said: “This attack took place in the middle of the day, in broad daylight in a residential street. It goes without saying that this incident would have stood out in what would normally have been a quiet environment.

    “It appears that four or five male suspects were involved in the attack; both they and Ayodeji were seen to run into Samos Road from Grace Mews. By this point Ayodeji had been attacked. The suspects fled in one direction while Ayodeji went the other way before he collapsed.

    I am appealing to anyone who was in the area on Sunday afternoon and saw this attack, or the events surrounding the attack, to come forward and speak to police. This includes trying to establish if anyone was with Ayodeji when he was attacked.

    “My officers are making progress as to why Ayodeji was in the area, why he came to be attacked and who was responsible for his murder, but we need information from the public to assist us in keeping the momentum of this investigation moving forward.”

    Two men - aged 19 and 21 - were arrested on suspicion of murder on Sunday evening and both have been released under investigation.

    I think that any witnesses or anyone with information about this killing should contact the incident room on 020 8721 4054. To remain anonymous please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. You can also tweet police via @MetCC

    Clearly anything beyond cut and paste is a bit much to ask.

    Detectives investigating the fatal stabbing of Ayodeji Habeeb Azeez in Anerley have charged 23-year old Chase Grey of Lancaster Road, South Norwood with his murder. He will appear in custody at Bromley Magistrates' Court today.

    Three other people have been arrested on suspicion of murder as part of this investigation:

    A 19-year-old man and a 21-year-old man have been released under investigation.

    A 16-year-old female has been bailed pending further enquiries to a date in early December.

    Bit of a random one, and please admin delete if not appropriate. I’ve got a friend who finds themselves, thanks to our insane benefits system, currently homeless. I’ve got no space at my flat at the moment. Anyone know of anyone looking for house sitter/ with a cheap spare room in localish area? They have stayed at mine before and looked after my dogs while I’ve been and I can totally vouch for their trustworthiness. Please PM me if you have any bright ideas/ might be able to help..

    Was up at the triangle at the weekend and discovered that Domali's has sadly closed. It was a good place to visit even if they were not sure
    what they were doing; vegetarian, with fish and more lately meat I think. fwiw, they should have stuck to being pure vegetarian, that would
    have worked. Vegan is raging at the moment and there are not even that many pure vegetarian places around. Certainly room for another
    one or two veggie places out there? :(
  28. RubyToogood

    RubyToogood can't remember what goes here

    Yes and no. The same people have opened the same place as Reunion serving much the same menu, but not open at night except as a private hire venue.

    I agree though... they got out of the vegetarian game at exactly the moment vegan was taking off.

    Yeah - I think they got that whole refurbishment/relaunch wrong - they never seemed to be busy after that, although they still did vegetarian food. I used to go there quite often when it was mostly vegetarian, but was put off by the way that they not only stopped being pescatarian, but also "banned" buggies and closed the garden.

    They seemed to close quite suddenly and re-relaunch under a different name abruptly and with a slightly different package. Initially, they just did snack type stuff, so I wondered whether they had laid off their chefs. I have not eaten there since, actually, so I don't know what they are doing now, menu-wise

    We ended up in The White Hart again, with at least 3 veggie options; a without meat burger and a nut roast which were both good and halloumi. Portions too big for puds.
