Has anyone noticed the yucky green banners with splashes of purple on them appearing outside Brockwell and other Lambeth Parks. This appears to be part of campaign to promote Art in the Borough. Does anyone know which local
art group designed these banners.? I think we should be told.

HERNE HILL NEWS
Following the very well-supported petition organised by two residents on the street called Herne Hill, Lambeth Council agreed to resurface this busy road from Kestrel Avenue to the junction of Herne Hill Road / Red Post Hill in 2007. Further representations, and support from Councillors on both sides of the road, achieved the result of bringing the resurfacing forward a year: the great news is that work starts on Sep 4th (not Aug 23rd as shown on the yellow signs).
The Herne Hill street Audit, originally requested by the Chair of Herne Hill Forum, and carried out by Southwark, identified pavement deficiencies on the Southwark side. As a result, the stretch between Elfindale Road and Holmdene Avenue was relaid this week; next week its the turn of the section outside the Herne Hill (Carlton) Parade of shops, between Elfindale and Frankfurt Roads.
All the above works will greatly improve this area and we are grateful to both Lambeth and Southwark Councils for their efforts.
The next development will be the vehicle activated speed sign on Herne Hill close to Ruskin Walk: implementation has been delayed and we will advise as soon as we have a firm date.

SOUTHWARK PARK GREEN FLAG
MILKWOOD GREEN FLAG
Green Flag award makes Milkwood Community Park a high flier
Thursday, August 17, 2006
MILKWOOD COMMUNITY PARK.
Milkwood Residents Association were proud to receive Lambeth's first Green Flag award at a presentation in Birmingham. Maude Estwick along with Robert Overall Executive Director for Environment collected the flag on behalf of the borough.
Apparently Robert and Shaun Kiddell, Parks Manager had told Maud they would be collecting the flag. Maude made it quite clear it would be her and left the other two to fight it out who would accompany her.
Robert thought he recognized Maude as having thrown eggs at him over the dustcart issue.
This has come at an important time whilst Lambeth bids for significant funding to the Lottery Fund for major improvements to Brockwell and Myatts Parks, as one of the grant conditions is good standards of maintenance of parks.
Brockwell Hall will be open on Saturday and Sunday 16th and 17th September
from 10am to 5pm. Unusually for the second year running the upstairs of the building can be viewed .
WHippersnappers are providing free children's entertainment at 2pm and 3pm every Wednesday tilll 30th August in Front of the Cafe at Brockwell Hall. The costs are paid from the proceeds of the FIVE PARKS WALK Thanks to Andy Walker and Caroline Berghard for arranging this event. The events have been well attended so far and are interactive.
This is a Brockwell Park MAC event.
Well last Monday evening a hoax call about half past midnight brought
out the services include five ambulances and the previous Monday saw the weekend taking being snatch by a young man waiting at the bus stop- I have since heard that about 30% of the secure collections from stations are actually dummy runs- so not ,much to be gained there.
It had been a bit wet wet and quiet. However on Monday morning Norwood Park found that its staff cabin had been burnt to the ground after someone had abandoned a stolen motor bike and set fire to it. Brockwell Park had reports of the police searching for a Latvian woman who had escaped from some form of enslavement and had sought refuge in the park. CLAPHAM had the most to report with 13 large four wheeled dustbins found in the Long Pond ( where you can run your model boat) and the woods sealed off by the police on reports of someone launching missiles at aircraft.
Fwd: Reminder about this Friday
