Do you love the Herne Hill Piano?

If you love the Herne Hill piano...

You are invited to a special screening of the Documentary film Instrument of Change: Street Piano.

The Herne Hill piano inspired Maureen Ni Fiann and Tom Rochester to spend three years making a documentary film about street pianos.

It is finished now - had its world premiere in South Korea, and won an award in Los Angeles.

It will have its first London screening on Sat Dec 9th at Conway Hall, Red Lion Square, Holborn.

Dr Bike Season Ending

You're probably all aware that there have been free bike check sessions in Brockwell Park every Wednesday just outside of the Lido, all summer long. These have been put on by Lambeth Sustainable Travel (LST) in Brockwell Park, Clapham Common South Side, Kings College Waterloo and West Norwood. Sadly, even though the weather seems to have perked up again, there are no more scheduled for Brockwell Park this year. Unless the one LST member who gave it a go last winter decides to brave it again, which is unlikely. If it happens we'll try to let you know. But the good news is that there is one more bike check session scheduled in two days' time, on Sept 28th, at Streatham Common South Side. Which is within reach! Get one in while you can! For more info see LST's FB at:
