    IMG_4522.JPG IMG_4523.JPG 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 :facepalm: 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!

    [​IMG]

    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.

    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:

    This thread has become very quiet since I moved away to Forest Hill... coincidence?

    Joking aside, I do like to check in from time to time to see how the old 'hood is doing. But it has seemed very quite on the forums. Is this a good sign that things are quiet and not much is happening? Hope so...

    C&P from my Inbox for circulation:

    "In the links below is information about a forthcoming enterprise programme taking place on the Loughborough Estate. It is part of the LJWORKS PROJECT that has been funded by the Mayor of London's office to develop the Loughborough Farm and nearby railway arches into workspaces and offer opportunities to local people to establish their businesses.

    I would be grateful if this info in Love Lambeth and LJAG websites could be circulated to your networks and put up on websites or anywhere where local people may become aware of it.

    Although the start date has already happened people are still welcomed to join.

    The smell from the dreadful cheese incident still lingers on in the Co-op, I note each time I'm in there.

    This came up at the LJ Neighbourhood Planning Forum. People from estate said the publicity was uninviting .

    The post meeting chat voiced scepticism that this kind of thing is not proper training for secure jobs. One of the concerns for the estate is that this is all LJ Works will offer.

    Seems to be a rave type event at the evicted car wash on HHR.
    Bassy ambients evident even in the Costcutter Off licence.

    Looks like squatters. They've left an impressive legal notice on the shutters.

    I have never noticed the cheese issue in the co-op. However, this grey cold morning, as I was buying some eggs, the PA system interrupted the music to try to sell me a co-op funeral. It explained that due to regional variations the cost of my grave will not be included in the price.
    Not sure about this advertising strategy. I walked out with just the eggs, when usually i might've added something frivolous like juice or biscuits, but there didn't seem any point.
