Anyone else been without internet since yesterday morning?
yup - it's a very large problem, not just in London, forecast to be solved by 7pm tonight... Apparently Virgin are keeping quiet about it in case people try to claim compensation...Seems to be an SE24 wide problem with Virgin. I've seen a few people moaning about it on Facebook and Twitter.
I was surprised to discover that the Electoral Reform Spciety had sold off it's election administration section to a hedge fund. Doesn't bode well for STV in mainland Britain does it?Received ballot letter today to vote on whether LEMB continues to run the estate or Lambeth to take over. LEMB trying to influence vote by leaflets in foyers in blocks comparing LEMB with Lambeth. Would be madness to vote for LEMB and Peter Shorinwa and the lazy Board who award themselves unjustified bonuses this time around! Sade Adedotun's salary is a joke. She's as far from being a 'star striker' as I am! One of the voting options is to place your vote in a box inside the LEMB Estate Office!!! Untrustworthy does not even begin to cover it!
Sorry to hear. I used to get my haircut there when I worked in Myatts Field park in early 80's. Probably the last time I went to a barber
I feel tempted to go to the Memorial Service, which is at 11 am on Wednesday.Sorry to hear. I used to get my haircut there when I worked in Myatts Field park in early 80's. Probably the last time I went to a barber
It doesn't make any sense at all. It is financially wasteful. The current LEMB and Loughborough Estate Office are making a mockery of the Estate and the monies it receives from Lambeth Council. They do not have a clue how to run an estate. Lambeth Council should step in. Why they haven't is beyond logic. Maybe Sade Adedotun could now state she is doing a cleaners job as well and pay herself for that before realising (shocker) she is not entitled to that money after all and then has to return it! How is this she still being employed on an LEMB contract? Re unjustifed bonuses for Board Members....LEMB Board members have you declared your unearned income to the taxman yet? The Loughborough Estate is being run by residents (LEMB) and a resident (nominated by a very few) as Chair (who walks around with a brief case in order to try to look important. Who is Peter Shorinwa other than just a resident and does he actually have a job?) who haven't got a clue how to run an estate and never does Sade Adedotun. Who is going next? Concierge staff? Office staff? First one to go should be Folasade Adedotun. It is time that the spotlight is brightly and publicly turned onto the way the Estate is being being run. This is in the public interest as it is involves huge amounts of Lambeth Council funds. The estate is the largest estate in London. Why hasn't Lambeth Council put three of it's members on the Board yet especially after the court case? Note to Peter Shorinwa - this isn't your estate. It belongs to Lambeth Council.8 x Estate Cleaners Job in London 8 x Estate Cleaners SW London - £11ph 35 Hours (8am - 11am 4pm - 6pm) Monday to Saturday Exciting opportunity to work for one of Londons largest local authorities based in Brixton.

They pay out thousands for redundancy from a long serving team which were short staffed from originally 14 then coped well with 11? Eventually cut down to around 6 which 1 was a driver (working on one of the largest boroughs) They did far more than cleaning the estate. They had to do house clearances for voids and anything else they could of got them to do then blamed them for their lack of work. Now they can get new workers in doing 35hrs PW/ 7DAYS a week? Tell me how it makes sense for a worker to come in for a few hours then go home for 5hours just to come back for 2 hours in the evening? Only restructuring needing is the Lemb director and the board.
The 8 Loughborough Estate Cleaners all left with redundancy Friday and look an advert for 8 cleaners below! Advert first states Monday to Saturday then states Monday to Sunday further down!

I have no idea. It can't be right that staff are made redundant then the jobs advertised (albeit different hours or not). Does anyone know if it is legal? Shorinwa still trying to influence people to vote for LEMB on the ballot instead of Lambeth by having a leaflet on his Chelsea Tractor that barely moves. Peter does not seem to understand action to improve the estate is everything and appearances are nothing. Even the prop that he carries around with him is farcical. The only time he uses the stick or walking prop is when he crosses the road after a meeting from the Loughborough Centre across to Kettleby House so others can see him. He carries it the rest of the time. What next a neck brace? sling? head bandage? wheel chair? Self-promotion and sympathy (or lack of) does not make a Loughborough Estate resident Chair qualified with an unqualified volunteer board to run an estate that is in rapid decline. How many more staff are going to be made redundant only to be replaced? What are the LEMB Board going to award themselves in bonuses this year? Volunteer means volunteer not rewarding yourself for having your name on a list of LEMB Board members.Isn't that sort of thing illegal? or are changes to hours etc enough to classify as a new position/role?
Not surprised - it's as if someone's deliberately come up with hours that no one would want to work if they had any choice in the matter. And they call it an 'exciting opportunity'.I heard they wasnt forcefully made redundant but they felt unwanted and knew times (hours) were changing, so they decided best thing is to leave. Not healthy to be working under the stress from the management on that estate anyway. Good luck to them.
This looks like a great initiative. Have made a donation.To provide a full day's excursion to the children of Grove Adventure Playground - A tour of Tower Bridge and return trip on the River Thameswww.crowdfunder.co.uk
These days out together are some of the most memorable times the children will have during the year. Last year's excursions included swimming at the Kent coast, a day out in Hampstead Heath and a visit to Tate Modern, which were all brilliant.
We would love to be able to plan a full excursion during every school holiday and if this Crowdfunder project is successful, during February half term we want to take the children on a tour of Tower Bridge and have a return trip on the river with the Thames Clipper service.
We know from experience that many of our registered children rarely leave the borough and some have never had the opportunity to experience visits to historic and important places from the city they live in.
The funds will allow us to pay for the entrance fee to Tower Bridge and Thames Clipper tickets for up to 60 children and a return trip to and from the playground.
Really good points that all need answering.Good evening,
Things to think about :
1. Recent restructure of LEMB :
A) many staff have left the LEMB (some with 20+ years of service) with thousands of pounds payment. That's fair enough however, the question is WHY this took place as recently as on last Friday, i.e. where the result of voting is not so obvious for Peter+Shade Co. ?
B) from a letter handed to staff on 17/01 : "LEMB will shortly be commencing a consultation to restructure the organisation. (…) This process is likely to commence in February 2020. "
Should not a consultation have taken a place BEFORE a redundancy had even materialised ?
What is Peter's current legal position ? is he a sitting chair ? ex-chair? a chair ?
Has anybody seen Shade during office hours at work at all ?
Everybody can see that a glass has been replaced in 4 big blocks and outdoor barbecue has been built (Nevil House).
Questions : who is a sub-contractor ?
did the tender process take place ?
what was a total cost of that job ?
was that job really necessary to be done now i.e. before voting ?
