    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.

    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.

    I was browsing Booth's map of LJ online
    st catherines lpk.JPG

    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.

    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.

    If you are expecting a wall of paper approach I think you will be disappointed.

    Year 3

    The artist Steve McQueen has this project on billboards across London.

    Underneath the railway bridge near Tesco's are two photos. MVIMG_20191108_093924.jpg MVIMG_20191108_093850.jpg MVIMG_20191108_093750.jpg MVIMG_20191108_093853.jpg

    "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. "
