MASSIVE thank you to all the wonderful people who built 20 planters today!


Railton Road is having a makeover this weekend, courtesy of Herne Hill residents, the Herne Hill Forum and the wonderful guys from Lambeth and Community Payback.





Today we built, painted and filled 20 planters with soil. Come down tomorrow and help us plant them up with The Flower Lady and her wonderful little Cuprinol sprayed elves.Smile

Street robbery in Herne Hill

Yesterday evening (Monday) at 7.18 p.m. I witnessed a woman having her phone stolen. Three youths approached her in Dulwich Road, grabbed her phone and ran across Dulwich Road to near Milton Road. I was on the Milton Road side and gave chase to them whilst also calling the Police. Two of them ran down Shakespeare Road into Railton Road and then back down Spenser Road whilst I ran after them. Thankfully Jody was out on his bike looking for his missing cat and also gave chase down Spenser Road.


One then stopped to talk to a woman in a car on the junction with Dulwich Road, the other continued running. I caught up and stopped the boy (about 14 years old) and tried to get him to decide to stay there. Unfortunately he made off down Dulwiuch Road and into Brixton Water Lane where I lost sight of him.

Great photo of Herne Hill wanted

The Herne Hill Forum is working with Living Streets to promote walking in and around the Herne Hill area. As part of the work there will be a postcard produced that needs a stunning image of Herne Hill and ideally walking in the area that will be on the front cover.

Have you taken a picture that you think embodies the best of Herne Hill?

If you have and are willing for it to be used on the postcard (full credits will be included) then please e-mail it in to: info@hernehillforum.org.uk.

Many thanks

There were a tremendous number of places to visit in SE London alone during the London-wide Open House weekend in September ... one place we made sure to spend time in was the Carnegie Library in Herne Hill, endowed by the Scots-American industrialist (one of among 380 library buildings he wholly or partially financed in the UK). An inspired Open House Guide walked us by its many remarkable features - from the old librarian's quarters, the stained glass and Tudor-style windows, the skylights over what used to be the old librarian's desk ... the tiled floor mosaics ... to a gallery in a disused room featuring kids playing chess and Herne Hill photos by Max Rush! We even had a look at the back stacks -- which included a massive collection of vinyl destined (we were told) for the skips and leather-bound books galore! We were then served tea/coffee and biscuits!


Controlled Parking Zone for Herne Hill/Milkwood Road area - updates

Yesterday evening there was a meeting for stakeholders involved in the proposed extension to the CPZ for Herne Hill.


The Lambeth Transport and Highways department wanted to discuss the results from the second round of consultation about extending the CPZ currently in the north of the area further down south towards the station.


Unfortunately Lambeth Transport and Highways department failed to provide any of the results information prior to the meeting and did not have any spare copies of how the voting had gone at the meeting.


Of the two copies of the results that were available (one had been obtained specifically by e local resdient callling up the Transport Department and requesting the information) it was apparaent that some of the statistics on percentatges in favour or against for individual roads didn't actually add up correctly. Lambeth Transport and Highways have promised to go back and check their addition and issue the full corrected results. We will post them here for downloading as soon as they are available.
