Herne Hill Velodrome Welcomes Disabled Cyclists

South London's iconic track cycling venue experienced a first last Friday 24th February: trike cyclists, handcyclists, side-by-side tandem cyclists, enjoying the thrill of cycling at the Herne Hill Velodrome! This was made possible by British Cycling's re-surfacing of the banked track, last August, which included the addition of a 3.6m wide, flat strip, enabling others than 2 wheeler race-cyclists to ride at Herne Hill.


Lambeth Park Ranger Service under the gun

Various agencies deal with the Lido carpark, which is regularly (ab)used by tradesmen, commuters & others - none of whom use the Lido. Disabled parking is abused. The Lambeth Park Ranger Service watched the carpark abuse terribly well, but at least did some work (see pic of tagged car). It faces elimination and this could worsen the parking situation. Petitions are circulating online to save it. If you have an opinion, now is the time to have your say.

Free yoga class for carers at the Lido May 23rd & discuss SEN Green Paper after

Don't forget that the second in a series of relaxation classes for carers of disabled children and young adults is happening at Brockwell Lido on Monday May 23rd from 11am - 12:30pm. This second class on May 23rd will feature 'Introduction to Yoga' and will focus on Hatha Yoga.


 If you're interested in these free sessions or know someone who could use some respite, ring Contact A Family Lambeth on 020 7326 5270 to hold a place, or you can do so by speaking to Lido staff on 020 7274 3088. Alternatively you can contact CAF Lido project leader Kate Burman by email: kate.burman@cafamily.org.uk


After the yoga session parents can discuss their response to the SEN Green Paper. This Green Paper could mean the biggest reform in the education and health support for children with special educational needs (SEN) and disabilities in 30 years! Opponents say there has not been sufficient consultation!
