Celebrating The Commercial's refurb; Friends of Carnegie news

It was a bit of a social whirl when The Commercial put on a little party to celebrate their new refurb last week! We met up with new manager Matthew when he came round with a plate of canapes and talked about some of the pub's changes. Definitely pleased with the new Sunday Roast! We also registered lots of renown Herne Hillians in evidence, including new Forum Acting Chair Yan Hawkins (as Giles Gibson has stepped down) Tricia Keracher-Summerfield, Robert Holden of the Herne Hill Society (also local tourguide) and Jeff Doorn of the Friends of the Carnegie Library.

Jeffrey Doorn on the upcoming Carnegie "exhibition"

We caught up with Jeffrey Doorn of Friends of Carnegie Library at the 2016 Ruskin Park Summer Fair on June 18th where the Friends also ran a stall. Jeff talks about what is happening with respect to Lambeth's Carnegie Library "exhibition" at St Saviours Hall on Herne Hill Road (at Finsen, near the Carnegie) this week when plans for the library will be shown, and what the Friends will be up to. Friends of Carnegie are still campaigning to claw back the library and hope people will question, not just accept plans.
