    Partly in response to the various stabbing incidents in South Norwood recently, a group calling itself South Norwood Action Group has been set up. It looks like it is wanting to work with young people in the area to divert them away from activities which could lead to violent assaults and knife crime.

    It is on facebook, if anyone is interested.

    One key issue may turn out to be whether the members of the community who are shooting and killing each other are interested.

    Yes, except this is also a long term thing - getting to the kids before they start killing each other.

    I didn’t post that up, because I still feel it’s a bit dubious. It calls itself a community cinema but it’s a business and pays the salary of the one named director.

    Everyone else is either a “volunteer”or, even worse, unpaid interns.

    And they’ve set up next door to Stanley Halls, who have been showing films for years. The director of the “community cinema” used to run the film club at the halls, but didn’t want to hand over the receipts or pay rent, or a hire fee for using their equipment (she was even offered a job), so they registered the name “Stanley’s film club” and left the halls, telling everyone how evil the stanley halls people were and trying to get everyone to boycott the halls.

    Now they’re fundraising for the equipment they need!

    There was a previous fundraising thst happened when they were at the halls, that lots of people, including myself, gave money to, but there was no evidence that it was used for the purposes for which it was raised.

    I was also a member, but felt unable to keep going because it was so toxic and I was labelled as one of the evil people.

    I feel very nervous about it in many ways.

    Re Stanley's Film Club / Screen25, i believe it is registered as a Community Interest Company, which is used for Social Enterprises, and has some financial restrictions, albeit i'm not exactly sure what those are.

    Yes, it is. Although it has not yet submitted its first year accounts.

    So it can’t make a profit. But it can pay the founder/director a salary, which it does, and it can use unpaid interns (at least, until that is made illegal) and volunteers.
