Jazz On The Hill presents Ingham Swing Ensemble and Jazz Jammers tonight Dec 23rd

The world didn't end on Friday, so come on out for a bit of pre-Xmas celebration tonight at Jazz On The Hill!



The Ingham Swing Ensemble kick things off at 6:30 and go till 8.



Then it is Jazz Jammers from 8:30 till late!



Jazz Jammers is a new "open mic night" idea at Jazz on the Hill and happens every Sunday from 8:30pm. Everyone is welcome to come and get up on stage and perform during this slot, and from this weekly showcase three acts will be chosen for the the once-monthly Saturday night '3 Band Special' when performers split takings on the door - £5 entry!


The inaugural went down very well last week and featured Ben Croft, Gill Holland with Donald Skinner, and Corduroy Trousers ... with the bands getting to share a pretty good door.


Imagine that, Jazz X-Factor at Jazz On The Hill in the square, every Sunday!  So come along to Jazz Jammers and take the microphone, or come along and root on contenders! Free entry.


Survey of visitors to Herne Hill

Herne Hill's use of Station Square 'an overwhelming success'


The Herne Hill Forum have been working on making the space outside the station, recently unofficially renamed "Station Square" a town square, a living street with activities, events and improvements to make it a great place to be. Living Streets were involved in producing a before and after survey of people who were in the area. They commisioned an independent outside company to survey hundreds of people as to what their views of the changes were. 


Here is the Living Streets Report on the changes made to the area around the station, it makes fine reading. Here are just a few of the wonderful stats

"SCOBIE" missing Bengal moggie in North Dulwich/Herne Hill vicinity

Newspost on behalf of very worried cat owners:

Scoobie, our neutered male Bengal cat has been missing since Friday 16th November. Last seen at 9 Courtmead Close SE24 9HW.

He is new to the area so may have lost his way home or be on route to our old house in West Norwood (SE27 9HB)

Photo of Scobie below and maps for both areas below.

He is very friendly, vocal and has beautiful soft fur and stunning blue eyes. He is slim and long - above the size of an average cat. At times, he is slightly cross eyed. He has a grey collar and on the collar a green metal tag which says he is micro-chipped.

We have been out looking and calling and leafleting but no sign of him yet. Please would you take a quick look in your shed/outbuilding as missing cats are often found there.
