RESIDENTS MEETING - Pory House and Lupino Court

Wednesday 19 August at 7pm

In Pory Hall, first floor above the shops on Lambeth Walk (ring the ground floor outside buzzer for access).

Last Friday's stabbing incident/anti-social behaviour at Lupino Court.

As you will know, last Friday there was a serious stabbing incident involving youths from the flats in Lupino Court.

Please come and meet other concerned residents, and talk to representatives from Peabody, Ethelred TMO and the local police, to discuss what needs to happen next.

We are extremely lucky that what happened did not lead to a murder. We need to make sure that this never happens. Come and tell your community representatives what you think needs to happen now, and find out how we can put an end to the anti-social behaviour at Lupino Court once and for all.

The following people will be there:
Claudius Opadiran - Peabody Neighbourhood Manager
Gudrun Burnet - Peabody Community Safety Team Leader
Judith Ihonor - Peabody Community Safety Officer/ Community Safety Team
Julie Fulgence - Ethelred TMO Estate Services Manager
Patricia Bogues - Ethelred TMO Senior Housing officer
Mark Harrison - Lambeth councillor for Prince's ward

Vauxhall Gardens Allotments Association meeting

The Vauxhall Gardens Allotments, at the corner of Glasshouse Walk and Tyers Street, have provided a place for residents of the Vauxhall Gardens Estate to grow vegetables for decades.

A meeting has been called to relaunch the Association which runs the allotments. New committee members are needed, and the rules governing the allotments need to be properly established.

The meeting will be held from 7pm - 8:30pm on Wednesday 12 August, at Vauxhall Christian Centre, 105 Tyers St, London, SE11 5HS

Six Lambeth parks win Green Flags

Two local parks popular with residents of SE11 have joined four others in Lambeth to be awarded the prestigious Green Flag award.

Vauxhall Park (South Lambeth Road) retained its Green Flag, and Archbishops Park (Lambeth Road) won a Green Flag for the first time.

The Green Flag Award recognises parks which manage to meet exacting national standards of safety, cleanliness and attractiveness.

Recognition for North Lambeth's parks is unlikely to end here. The Friends of Kennington Park are hopeful that they will achieve Green Flag status next year. And Vauxhall Spring Gardens has dramatic improvement works planned over the coming years, which should make it a strong contender for the award.
