Cafe Prov fundraiser down to the last!

The good news is that Cafe Provencal owner Adam Shipley has a meeting with Thames Water tomorrow. The bad news is that there aren't any assurances and Cafe Prov's fundraiser is well shy of target with just a couple of days left. Posting on social media a short time ago, Adam wrote:

Another trader bites the dust as a result of the Thames Water flood

Its very sad to report that another trader in Half Moon Lane has not survived the flood. This message from Chris, the proprietor of Number 22.




Dear customers,


Despite a fantastic 5 months of trading following 14 months of closure, I unfortunately have been forced into a position where I have to close the business.


Thanks Charlotte Ashworth! South London Press profile last month

Just in case you haven't seen it, nice piece in the South London Press last month about Herne Hill Forum organiser Charlotte Ashworth who helped residents and traders in the wake of the Herne Hill flood and whom we also have to thank for helping to piece together the Herne Hill Market Christmas Fair! And more. Charlotte was nominated for an Our Heroes award - read more:


Update on Herne Hill Flood - Oxfam shop

Latest from Oxfam (20 Half Moon Lane)


Our shop will not be able to open until the end of November at the earliest because of the flooding. Sadly we lost everything as it was all stored in the cellar whilst the planned refurbishment happened. So this Saturday (7th of September) from about 10 am to 3 pm, we shall be outside the shop to accept selected donations ( clothing, china, books and music) and talk to people. Please come and visit us.


We’ll be doing this on selected weekends until we can open again. 


Please don’t leave donations outside of the shop when we are not there as the builders cannot take them in and we can’t use them.
