Library of Things comes to Brixton this month

The Library of Things, originally based in West Norwood and Crystal Palace, is extending its 'Things on Wheels' home delivery trial to the Brixton area - including Herne Hill/SE24. 

You will be able to reserve over 20 different items to be delivered to and collected from your house from mid-September.

Local Drop: New Direct Delivery from local businesses in Herne Hill

A message from a new start-up in the area:

"We've just launched Local Drop in Herne Hill and the surrounding postcodes! Our aim is to support local food and wine merchants by giving them an online presence. This means you can beat the queues and support local independents conveniently.

Discover and shop online from your favourite local food and wine shops

We'll pick up your order and drop it straight to your door.

Free interactive 8 week business course for all residents

Confusion, anger, frustration, sadness, worry, cashflow stress? We are all feeling it,  especially since coronavirus descended on us all those weeks ago.

Whether you have been recently laid off, your business has suddenly stopped, or you have been struggling to find work for several years, it can be hard to see the wood for the trees. Tree Shepherd, a local social enterprise who run GLOWS in Tulse Hill, are here to help.

Picture Framer Turns Fundraiser

Herne Hill's much-loved picture framing shop, Brockwell Art Services, are celebrating 40 years in business - and shop owner Jim Davidson is celebrating this milestone by cycling from London to Amsterdam to raise money for St Christopher's Hospice.

If you'd like to support this Herne Hill stalwart on his epic (if fortunately rather flat) journey, the link to donation is here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/james-davidson40 - please give generously if you are able to a very worthy cause.

Public art trail launched to revive Herne Hill after devastating floods

Have you seen a flying boot, rabbit, hairpins, and what looks like a wig suddenly appearing across Herne Hill?  A number of metal art works have started to appear above shops, in the railway tunnel or inside the Half Moon pub.  They are part of “Flying Boots and Eyes on Fire”, a new public artwork celebrating the Herne Hill community’s resilience and revival after devastating floods in 2013, which left 58 businesses with losses in excess of £6.7m.

Coming Soon to Herne Hill Station: Free Ice Cream!

You may have noticed a new arrival inside Herne Hill Station: Minus 12 are opening a craft ice cream kiosk on Saturday 28th July, and to celebrate the opening day, they will be giving away FREE ICE CREAM!

Opening at 11am, there will be small tubs of ice cream available on the day (1 per person) until they run out. All ice cream is made on site daily in small batches using the highest quality natural ingredients, and all packaging is biodegradable, compostable or reusable.
