Follow the saga of LEMB if you want entertainment...
There is a lot going on around the area.
Hero of Switzerland thread on this forum is about planning application opposed by many locals.
The Grove Adventure playground thread is about saving the playground from being "developed" by the Council.
The Loughborough Farm and the Platform are ongoing projects run by LJAG.
In future the long term security of small businesses in the arches is gaurenteed. I know one thats gone and another waiting to see about new lease. They will then decide to stay or move somewhere cheaper.
LJAG ( I'm no in it) is important local group.

Nice article about the Grove Advenute Playground by City Harvest.
Lambeth Kids Empowered by Unity Cafe
Cooked food has become an important part of the Grove APG.
City Harvest have made this financially possible by donating food to the Grove APG.

So... it would seem that Federation Coffee have taken the space that used to be the ticket office on the platform at LJ station. Looked like they were open / opening just now.
Does that mean they will provide toilet facilities?
they were supposed to take it last year but it was put on hold with the tragic deaths of the graffiti artists
It was open this morning, giving away Free Coffee.
It's a bit late to post this but LJAG have their AGM this evening,
I was browsing Booth's map of LJ online
And noticed "St Catherine" right in the middle.
Diocesan records say this
Anyone have any info on this?
It is confusing. St Catherines was an Iron Church on Gresham Road demolished to make way for the Fire Station. It was under the umbrella of St John's the Evangelist. I have never been able to source a photograph. Lambeth archives don't have any info at all that I could find. I do have a yearbook of parish magazines from 1892 which features monthly 4 page newsletters bound into back of general Anglican stuff. It mostly served the Loughborough Park area. Records are held by Southwark diocese though Lambeth palace archives also have some information listed. Not been to either archives yet. There was a separate outreach mission on Sussex Road, though not sure if connected to St Catherines.
Come home and first off the block are the LDs.
The horror of her as PM. No thanks.
That's supposed to be a leaflet for target seats - so mind what you say!
BTW as a fluctuating member of the hearing impaired community I must say Jo Swinson does everything right for us. She speaks slowly and deliberately and in contrast to those gruffly mumbling (pissed?) members her voice can shatter wine glasses at the other end of a Wetherspoons.
RE: saga LEMB
AGM, 31 Oct 2019...
Why don't residents complain?
Went direct to the bin unread.
Probably all direct mail rather than had delivered stuff
Has anyone in Helen Hayes Land received any green literature yet?
If you are expecting a wall of paper approach I think you will be disappointed.
The artist Steve McQueen has this project on billboards across London.
Underneath the railway bridge near Tesco's are two photos.
"From early November, Steve McQueen's epic portrait of London’s Year 3 pupils will be seen across London and at Tate Britain.
This vast new artwork is one of the most ambitious visual portraits of citizenship ever undertaken, in one of the world’s largest and most diverse cities.
Last year Steve McQueen, together with Tate, Artangel and A New Direction, invited every Year 3 class in London to be photographed. Through the vehicle of the traditional school class photograph, Year 3 show tens of thousands of schoolchildren at a milestone year in their development. All aged between 7 and 8 years old, they stand smiling at the camera, facing the future. "
also at Tate:

I went to see the exhibition but it didn't do much for me at all!
There is a meeting at 7pm Wed 11th December 2019 at the Loughborough Community Hall across the Road from Woolley House. This is for Loughborough Estate Residents to vote for whether they want the LEMB to continue running the estate or whether Lambeth Council should take it back.
