Thanks! Lots of clean cars in Loughborough junction!
LJ Christmas fair is on at Sunshine Cafe - definitely worth a look around. There's an artist there selling prints of his paintings of LJ and Brixton. I'm no art expert but I loved them.
Does anyone know if Adrian at the Blue Turtle cafe is OK? It's been closed for a few days now ...
Also I heard a rumour that the shop being refurb'd between Costcutter and the Blessed takeaway will be an estate agent someone please tell me this is not the case
Warrior Studios (in the arches opposite Tescos) have open studio next weekend:
Camberwell Open Studios this weekend - Saturday Night Music and drinks!
Just wanted to invite you all to Warrior Studios' open weekend this Saturday and Sunday. We have a host of great stuff going on throughout the daytimes and a bit of a party on Saturday night with live music and drinks, so come on down!
One feature this time, being almost Christmas, will be Jane Campbell selling her seasonal collaged cards. She says:
"These cards are hand made with vintage buttons and fabric, using water based adhesive. I love fabric and enjoy the juxtaposition of colours and textures. Every card is different and often not documented, so each is a truly unique piece of work" ...and they're only £3.50 each!
Arrived into LJ yesterday, for the first time, on one of the shiny new Thameslink trains. These will gradually replace the existing ones from now on.
They do seem to have quite a bit more standing room space. We'll see if that helps with the morning peak capacity problems. I expect they'll simply continue to be packed full, but with a larger number of people, on arrival at LJ.
People were apparently fainting and fighting due to train overcrowding this morning (according to twitter).
Got one of the new train a while ago. Really like them. Luckily I only use them to go Sutton route. Doubt I'd like them if I were going the other way.
The railway arches at the bottom of Herne Hill Rd (soapy moos, alpha motors etc) have now been repossessed by Network Rail for redevelopment. Alpha has moved round the corner to the industrial estate on Hardess Street.
*fingers crossed* waitrose?
For those following the Carnegie Library plans... there is a planning application in at the moment, to add a gym to the basement including various external extensions. Comments/objections need to be made by next Monday, 12th December. I have put a summary of the proposals on the Carnegie thread here:
