The Trust is holding an open public consultation on the plans at the Velodrome, 104 Burbage Road SE24 9HE, on Easter Saturday April 4th from 10am-1pm, and also on Wednesday April 8th 2015, 6pm-8.30pm. Both are wheelchair accessible.

The now famous Sally Goble is coming to Brockwell Lido this Saturday 28th March at 9am as part of her 50th birthday quest to swim a mile a day for fifty consecutive days in public pools in and around London.


The story has made quite a splash in the media and she now keeps a blog of her adventures on the Guardian web site:http://gu.com/p/46eay/sbl as well as her Twitter page @sallygoble.



Her journey started on Sunday 1st March at the 25m Forest Hill pool and has now taken in over 20 other pools including Charlton Lido, Marshal Street Baths and Crystal Palace. Here favourite so far has been York Hall in Bethnal Green. She says she is saving the open air lidos until the end of her 50 days when she hopes the water might be over 10°C. She might be in for a suprise at Brockwell!

Diamond Jive  teaches 1950s partner dancing to Rock n Roll and Rockabilly music for people of all ages and backgrounds. Because there's less footwork, it's easier to learn than Swing & Lindy Hop. You might remember Diamond Jive from its sessions at the Prince Regent in the past. The next Diamond Jive South London classes are at The Book & Record Shop (20 Norwood High Street, SE27 9NR) on Sunday, March 22nd, 4-6pm, and then at the The Railway
in Tulse Hill on Friday, April 10th, 8:30-1am (7 Station Rise SE27 9BW). New website: https://diamond-jive.myshopify.com  Twitter: @diamondjive
